NURSERY

We provide high quality, loving nursery care for ages birth - 4 years old during our 9:30am 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.

PIONEER CLUBS

The Monday night (6:00pm to 7:20pm) club meetings will be organized into Scooters (ages 4-6); Voyagers (first and second graders); Pathfinders (third and fourth graders); and Trailblazers (fifth, sixth and seventh graders). Teams of two adults will lead groups of kids in skill-building activities like crafts, baking, music, drama and more as well as Bible exploration, games, Bible memory and prayer.

The curriculum is provided by Pioneer Ministries of Wheaton, Illinois, which has been leading clubs for kids since 1939. Churches across the U.S. host Pioneer Clubs for kids in their communities.

Pioneer Clubs aims to encourage kids’ social, physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual growth; and to help them build healthy relationships with caring adults and peers. The non-competitive nature of the program encourages all children to feel included and to succeed.

Parents can register by phone or at the church office, open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A registration fee of $15 helps to cover materials and supplies, and scholarships are available as needed.

Pioneer Clubs will run this winter through the month of May. The first regular club meeting will be held on January 26 from 6 to 7:20 p.m.

For more information, call leader Kelly Carpenter at 376-4038 or email kcarpenter15@outlook.com. Parent volunteers are welcome.
