Proverbs 4:5 states, Learn to be wise, and develop good judgment.  In the Children’s Ministry, we think it’s never too early to start forging a relationship with the Lord. Our goal is to partner with parents in the spiritual training of their children. We want to build their faith, fortify their knowledge, and edify their spirits; every good spiritual thing that you want from our church, we want for your children.

In other words, we feed your kids. And sometimes they get a snack, too.



School-Year Schedule (Oct-early June)

Both Services (8:30 & 10:30 AM)

(Nursery, PreK, and Kindergarten may be dropped off 15 minutes prior to the start of service. Grades 1-5 will be dismissed after the first set of songs. 

·      Nursery (ages 0-2), upper level near the main entrance

·      Preschool/Kindergarten Sunday School (ages 3-5), lower level, Rooms 8 & 9

·      Kids' Church (grades 1-5), lower level, Function Hall and adjacent classrooms




Nursery, is available for infants to 2 years old on Sundays. Parents are also welcome to use the Parents’ Room adjacent to the Worship Center. Here you can care for nursing or restless babies and still see and hear the service. Please plan to drop off Nursery aged children before service.



Sunday School for children in PreK (ages 3 & 4) & Kindergarten runs from October through mid-June during both services. We are currently using the Gospel Project for Preschoolers. Please plan to drop off your PreK/K children before service begins. They will be in Rooms 8 & 9 which are located in the lower part of the building.

Kids’ Church runs from October through mid-June for children in grades 1-5. We are currently using The Gospel Project for Kids curriculum. Children will be dismissed during the service and you can use the two "Kids Church Entrance" doors to the left and the right of the worship center platform to bring your children downstairs for check in. Please use those same doors when picking up your children after service.

*If you have children in multiple age groups and do need to drop them all off at the same time, please bring your older kids to Kids' Church first, then drop off your PreK/K children and then infants/toddlers.

*We use the public school’s age criteria for determining a child’s grade level.
