NURSERY

We provide high quality, loving nursery care for ages birth - 4 years old during our 9:00am Sunday morning worship service and other events throughout the church calendar.

SUNDAY SCHOOL

During the 9:30am service, after a time of family worship, children are invited to participate in an age appropriate Sunday School class. Our Sunday School is provided for elementary school aged children.

KID'S PLACE

...where faith and fun meet! Kids from pre-k-k through 6th grade are invited every Wednesday at 5:30 PM for a fun half-hour of live, high-energy praise music followed by a dynamically-presented bible story, then downstairs we go to discuss the story in table groups, then we make it come alive with a half-hour creative time that spans the gamut from painting and gluing and constructing to baking and lego-making. We have a blast! Pick-up time for parents is 7 PM. The nursery is available for younger siblings to be dropped off as well. Kids' Place goes from September through May.
