We hope you will make it a priority to bring your children to church, as the relationships your children form and the things they learn will be invaluable to them as they “try on” faith for themselves.
CHILDREN IN WORSHIP
Children of all ages are always welcome in both worship services. In fact, children are actively involved in leading worship!
During The Table at 9:00, children are invited to the front during the Songs of Welcome to dance, sing and play instruments. Following the first reading, children gather at the back of the sanctuary with our Children’s Staff for a time of quiet worship-centered play and creation. During this time they will create a beautiful tablecloth for the communion table. Children return to their families for Communion and remainder of the service.
During 11:00 Traditions, children open the service by processing with LED candles to the altar. They are always welcome to stay for the entire worship service, but we do have nursery care for children aged 3 and younger, and for all other children a time of biblical play and activity with Children's Ministry staff in the KidZone room.
SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN
At 10:00 am, little ones are in Sunday School, nursery, even a few newborns hanging out with their parents in the Faithful Families class.
More information on our Sunday School classes for parents can be found here.
We offer three amazing places for your little ones to grow in their faith:
Babies and Wobblers (infant-1’s)
Our youngest ones enjoy a loving, Christian environment that is safe, secure, and clean. This is a class full of smiles, songs, crafts, as well a loving place to play, nap, and cuddle. Nursery care is offered during both Worship Services and during Sunday School Classes.
Toddlers and Threes (2-3)
This class is full of action! In four week units, they study well known stories, using the Deep Blue Curriculum. The children explore each theme, in a variety of different learning styles: play, storytelling, crafts, music, and more.
Rotation Station: (ages 4-6th grade)
Children take an in-depth look at a specific story in 7 week units. Each week they explore this story in new and different ways using different learning styles. The classes include Art, Games, Science, Drama, Cooking, Missions, and Spiritual Practices. Each child will become an expert in the story in their own way. This class is movement based, and multi-level learning at its finest!
