NURSERY:  Available for children birth – 3 years at both the 9:15 and 10:30 services.   It is equipped with a call system that will contact parents in worship if their child needs them.

SUNDAY SCHOOL: For children 4 years old through 6th Grade at both the 9:15 and 10:30 services.  The curriculum uses Luke 2:52 as the basis for all lessons. “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.” The goal of all lessons is to help the children understand three basic truths modeled by Jesus:  I need to make the wise choice, I can trust God no matter what, and I should treat others the way I want to be treated.  All of the children will learn the Bible lesson together in a large group and will then split into smaller age groups for the follow up activities and discussions.

At the 9:15 SUNDAY SCHOOL, children will go directly to Fellowship Hall for Children’s Worship every week. The children will be dismissed to Classroom A for follow-up activities. You can pick you children up there at the end of worship.

At the 10:30 SUNDAY SCHOOL, children will go directly to Fellowship Hall for Children’s Worship every week EXCEPT THE FIRST SUNDAY OF THE MONTH. On first Sundays (October – June), the children will go to the main Sanctuary first, allowing them to hear the Children’s Choir. They will then be dismissed to Fellowship Hall for the Large Group Bible Lesson. Children will be dismissed to classroom for follow up activities. You can pick up your children in the following rooms at the end of worship.
4 years  – 1st Grade: Classroom B
2nd – 4th Grade: Classroom C
5th and 6th Grade: Classroom A

SUMMER SUNDAY SCHOOL: Beginning June 17, 2018.  Sunday School will be available for children ages 4-12 at both the 9:15 and 10:30 service times. Children will continue with a regular Sunday school class in a one-room format.
