Sunday School

Sundays 9 – 10 am

Seeking to work alongside parents to build a solid foundation for faith in our children, Sunday School is a time to dig deep in Biblical truth. In a small group with two adult leaders, children will participate in activities designed to help them learn about the Bible, see how they are important and loved by God, and understand how they can help share that love with others. Sunday School classes for 4 year olds (by August 15th) through 4th graders are held on the 3rd floor.

Sundays 9:00am-10:00am Location
4s (by August 15th) Room 305
Kindergarten Room 308
1st-2nd grade Room 309
3rd-4th grade Room 301

Children’s Church ~ Kids Core

Sunday Mornings during Worship Service

All children age 4 – 4th grade are invited to participate in our Children’s Church Program, Kids Core. Following the structure of a worship service, children will learn more about God’s Word and worship in an exciting, child-oriented way.

Kids Core for 4 year olds and Kindergarteners will meet each Sunday. Kids Core for 1st–4th graders will meet on each Sunday with the exception of the first Sunday of each month. These days will give families an opportunity to worship together and for children to experience a traditional worship setting.

Children will be invited to dismiss at a designated time from the worship service to go to Kids Core.

Pick up will be in the following rooms:
4 years old (by August 15th) Room 305
Kindergarten Room 308
1st-2nd grade Room 309
3rd-4th grade Room 307

Childcare Policy

In an effort to be the best possible stewards of church resources, childcare for activities associated with Core Groups or Short Term Study/Small Groups outside the realm of regular, church-wide activities or meetings will be $2/child. This fee is requested to be paid in full for the extent of the sessions on the first meeting. For example, a 6-week Core Group would be $12/child. Please give payment to the Childcare Coordinator with a check or exact change at the time of drop off.

NextGen Campaign

Coming in May!  We are excited to begin preparing team members for Next Gen Sunday School for the 2018-2019 school year!  Be on the lookout for more information soon, and please begin praying about how you may be called to serve.

Sermon Notes for Kids

Be on the lookout every Sunday in which Kids in Grades 1-4 remain in Worship for a stack of papers entitled “Sermon Notes for Kids” located on the front Acolyte pew near the Children’s Bulletins.  Any students who complete a page of these sermon notes and submit them to Ms. Brooke (at any time and for any Sunday) will receive a brand new animal print pencil!  During Kids Core students have learned how to complete these notes- though they may still need parent help with some parts.  The idea behind these notes is to get children engaged and connected during the Sundays they remain in Worship.  Please email with any questions.
