Children

We’re in this Together!

Ministering to the Spiritual Growth of our Children AND FAMILIES

We believe in providing families the resources needed to raise children in the knowledge of who Jesus Christ is, that God expresses love for all of us through Jesus, and that the Holy Spirit is always there for them, helping them live their very best lives.

Join us in-person in the sanctuary. All age children are welcome in worship! We have rocking chairs in the back of the sanctuary and even more open space in the back for coloring, reading, or crawling. We also have a newly renovated family lounge area for nursing, changing diapers, or having some quiet time.

Kids Corner. We have set-up a special area in the back of the sanctuary with books, coloring and activity pages, worship journals, and other activities to help kids engage in worship.

Children/Student classes do not meet during the summer.

During the school year, our Sunday morning classes for children and youth take place after our 9:30 a.m. worship services. We divide into groups based on age and/or school grades.

K-4th Grade
5th – 7th Grade
8th – 12th Grade
Youth Group (grades 8-12) meets Sunday afternoons from 4-6 p.m.

Yes. We have a Children’s Corner in the back of our Sanctuary, with books for them to read, coloring activities, building blocks and other items. There are rocking chairs at the back as well. We also have a room across from our Sanctuary with a live video feed of the service for nursing moms or anyone who cares to be away from the Sanctuary but still wants to stay connected to the service.

We work to strike a balance between “over programming” our children and families while still working to equip children and parents with valuable Biblical lessons and fellowship opportunities.

Our regular events include:

  • Monthly Young Family Small Group
  • Lenten Family Devotionals
  • Easter Sunday Fellowship Gathering
  • Vacation Bible School
  • All-Church End-of-Summer Picnic
  • Children’s Book Celebrations
  • Advent Family Devotionals
  • Gingerbread House Decorating Party
  • Nativity Christmas Pageant (during Sunday worship)
  • Christmas Eve Family Worship Service
