We recognize that every child is on their own personal journey with Christ. We desire to expand that walk through Bible lessons that give them a foundation in God’s Word and a knowledge of God’s deep and unending love for them in Jesus Christ. We open our Bibles, explore truths in the stories and present those truths in ways they can understand and apply to their lives daily.  We offer opportunities for fun & growth on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.

Sunday School


(Birth – 2 years)

Tender loving care is available in our nursery during all worship services. Care is provided by trained day-care staff that love Jesus and love to share that with young children through play, music and affection.

Wednesday Night


Is it ok to bring my child to church?
Absolutely!!! Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14). We welcome all of our children in church. If you however would prefer nursery care is available for birth – 2 year olds.

What is available on Sunday mornings for my child?

Nursery care is available from 8 to noon for children age 2 and under.

Sunday school options for kids ages 3 and up include:

  • Sunday School   10:15 -11:15

What is rotational Sunday School?
We offer rotational Sunday School for our elementary age classes. Rotational Sunday school focuses on one Bible message for 3-5 weeks. During this time the children experience this teaching through various forms: art, science, video, drama, storytelling, and games. This method allows them to learn and retain this important Biblical foundation in a way that is best suited to them.

If my child is in AK or was in AK which class should they be in?
If your child is in AK they can join the kindergarten class or the 4 year olds. Once your child enters kindergarten they may either spend one more year in the kindergarten class (so they will be with the children they go to school with), or join the class moving on to 1st grade.

What’s Wednesday night outreach all about?

Wednesday night outreach is our Wednesday evening program where we all “get connected” to Christ through games, large & small group activities, crafts and more! Children age 3 through fourth grade are welcome for classroom activities. Nursery care is available for infants and toddlers.

Sundays: From 7:50 AM – 11:25 AM
Wednesdays: 6:15 PM – 7:30 PM
