Important Update About Worship Services

Kids and Youth

Our goal is to help our children become true disciples of Jesus Christ by building relationships with them, being examples for them and teaching them God’s Word.

Safety

All teachers and volunteers are required to submit a background check and child abuse clearances. In addition, all teacher helpers must attend training. Child Abuse and Criminal Background Clearances must be renewed every five years. Find information here.

Biblical Teaching

Children and Youth curriculum varies between topics and books of the Bible. 

Sunday Mornings

Professional nursery care is provided during all morning worship services; for infants and  toddlers/walkers up to age 3 1/2  in the Nursery.

Sundays Beginning September 27th
We are excited to launch our new ministry: Faithful Families! It will focus of families learning and growing in Christ together. Parents and children will receive the same message each week (either by attending in-person service together or online). Children will receive a short age-appropriate video explaining the Bible story. Families will receive suggested discussion questions to spark conversation on the ride home from service or over Sunday lunch.

KWAM (Kids With a Mission!) is our summer Sunday School offering that allows children to practice being like Jesus and helping others. Immediately following worship, children will meet in the parking lot near the preschool wing to work on mission project with their family. Please remember to bring your masks and a PICNIC BLANKET (this will give your family a space to complete the project in lieu of tables). In the event of rain, we will move indoors following all the social distancing guidelines.
