Children

We love kids! Seriously, we are blessed in our ministry to children, as we watch the littlest ones fall in love with God, embrace opportunities to give and serve, and begin to walk with Jesus.

Sunday Mornings

Nursery Care (All Morning)
Infants and children under 4 will be lovingly cared for in the nursery to allow parents a peaceful time to worship and grow in their Christian faith. The nursery is located in Room F115, just off the Children’s Lobby in the Education Wing.

Children's Church (During the 9:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. services)
Kids age 4 - 3rd grade attend the opening segment of worship with their parents and then are dismissed during the greeting for Children’s Church. After the 9:00 service, you can pick them up in the MacDonald Room (below the Sanctuary). After the 11:15 service you can pick them up in the Nursery (across the Drive-Thru).

Sunday School (10:15 a.m. - 11:05 a.m.)
Children's Sunday school classes are offered for kids from Pre-K to 5th grade. Look for posted signs to direct you to your child's classroom.
