Children

Birth through 5th grade
 
Nursery

Nursery care for ages 0-3 is provided during worship to give parents an opportunity to enjoy the service, while knowing their child is safe. The nursery is located on the lower level. Stop by the Parent Check-In station to sign your child(ren) in and to grab a pager! 

If you’d like to volunteer in our nursery, please sign up below!

All our volunteers are subjected to a background check. We require two volunteers in the nursery at all times.

Children & Worship

Children & Worship is offered to kids ages 3 through 3rd grade during the worship service. Kids start in the service for gathering music and words, and then are invited to the front for a children's sermon. Afterward, they are dismissed down to Children & Worship.

Children & Worship runs September through May on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays of the month. During the summer and on even-day Sundays, kids are encouraged to grab supplies from the Kids Corner in the Narthex to aid their attention spans during the service!

Sunday School

Sunday School runs from September-May. Ages 2 through 5th grade start together in the Children's Ministry Room, located in the lower level Education Wing. After gathering & music time, age groups will split for their Small Group lessons!

Schedule

10:50 AM  Large Group (Children's Ministry Room)

11:00 AM   Small Groups (Education Wing Classrooms)

11:45 AM   Dismissal

Parents of children please note: 

We ask that you bring your children to the Children's Ministry Room at the start of Sunday School and then pick them up at the end of Sunday School from their classrooms. In the break between worship and Sunday School, please provide an opportunity for your child to use the restroom and get a snack upstairs. Food and drink should not be taken to the classrooms. Thank you!
