Because the time from birth to age 12 in a child’s life is so critical for a relationship with Christ, we place special emphasis on our Children’s Ministries. In addition, all of our children’s workers are Safe Place* approved and trained. You can rest assured that your kids are receiving the highest quality care.
While you are in the worship service and E 4:13 Groups, your kids will enjoy participating in our Children’s Ministries. The following opportunities are available for your children.
Well Infant Nursery
Sundays at 9:00am and 10:45am
Our experienced and loving nursery staff offer care during our worship service and Sunday E 4:13 Groups for all infants from birth through age 3. In order to preserve the health of each child, we ask that you keep any children demonstrating signs of a contagious illness home until they are well. The nursery is located in Room A5 of the Main Building.
Children’s Church is offered on Sunday mornings during our worship service.
Children from age 3 years through 4th grade stay with their families for the beginning of the Worship Service. Children will leave for their own class just before the scripture is read to prepare for the coming sermon. (Note: Children are not required to attend “Children’s Church”. It is only offered as a way to connect with children on their own level.) Your kids will engage with the sermon text through drama, music, crafts, Bible stories, and fun activities/games. As we sing the closing song, the children will return to the Worship Center to rejoin their parents.
E 4:13 Groups (Ephesians 4:13–helping us grow and mature in Christ as we are in community)
Sundays at 10:45am
E 4:13 Groups are offered for kids of all ages. Teachers use this longer block of time to break down spiritual truth and supplement their teaching with crafts, music, games, and snacks. Currently we are using Answers in Genesis’s study through the Bible as our curriculum for ages 3 yrs – High School.
