9:45-10:40am for children 3 years - 6th grade. Our Sunday School classes are set up large group/small group style for 1st-4th grades. This means they come together for a engaging lesson as a large group and then, dismiss to smaller age-level groups to discuss and participate in enriching activities.
SWIFT (5th/6th grades), Kindergarten, and PreK are self-contained classrooms that have the same lessons, but are structured for age appropriate activities and discussion. This allows our classes to enjoy deeper discussion and more hands-on learning for our littles.
PreK ~ Downstairs (Room B107)
Kindergarten ~ Yellow Room
1st & 2nd grades ~ Blue Room
3rd grade ~ Green Room
4th grade ~ Aqua Room
SWIFT (5th & 6th grade) ~ Purple Room
All color rooms are located on the 2nd floor of the Education Building on the Pier Hallway.
Children learn about God and draw closer to Jesus through active play and learning through games, activities, and crafts using God's Word to shape it all. We believe learning about God is best made through connections: connection to our leaders, connection to the Bible, and connection to each other.
11:00 am Worship Services
To worship together as a family is truly a blessing. On the first Sunday of each month, we intentionally do not offer Children’s Church so families may worship and celebrate Holy Communion together. We encourage you to make the most of this opportunity to be a positive influence on your children. Teach them how to participate in all the elements of “Big Church” worship - be their example. Proverbs 22:6 says: Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. Please know that your children are always welcome in all our worship services—and not just on the first Sunday of the month! It’s a precious thing to hear their sweet voices praising God.
On the remaining Sundays, children ages 4 years - 6th grade are welcome to attend Children’s Church during the 11:00 worship services (Children’s Church is not held during the 8:30 service). Children will attend the first portion of worship with their family and then be dismissed and escorted by Children’s Ministry leaders to the Fellowship Hall in the Christian Life Center. They can be picked up from the Fellowship Hall immediately following the worship services. Our 5th & 6th graders get to embrace a leadership role during this time and often help lead worship and assist kids with younger activities.
We happily welcome youth and adult volunteers to help us with Children's Church.
