Sunday school is a vital component to learning God’s word and growing in knowledge and wisdom. We have a Sunday school for each developmental stage and grade level. Children learn in small groups and experiential learning, while developing community and growing in discipleship. Take home FamilyConnect resources and tools go home weekly and are sent out to our parents via email to keep the conversations going Monday through Saturday.

We invite your children to join us for Sunday School at 9:30 and Children’s Worship at 11:00.

8:30 AM: Please worship as a family. There are Children’s Worship Packets and crayons available for your use.

9:30 AM: Children ages 4 - 5th grade: Our Sunday School leaders are excited about sharing God’s Word with the children and investing in their spiritual formation. Sunday mornings are just the beginning; we love to partner with parents through weekly communications of the lesson and a Family Connect take home page. It is our prayer that these tools keep the conversation going during the week. 

11:00 AM: Children’s Worship is a multimedia environment that ushers in worship, provides Bible-based teaching, and age appropriate life application illustrations for kids. Object lessons, video clips, and hands-on activities engage kids in God’s Word and challenges them to live for Jesus in their family, school, and community! 

Children (birth to 4-years old) begin in their respective classrooms. Our elementary aged children (Kindergarten- 5th) begin their worship in the Sanctuary with their families before being invited to meet their teachers outside the sanctuary. For our new or visiting families, please visit the Children’s Welcome Table outside the Sanctuary to register your child(ren). Electronic Check in is downstairs in the middle hallway stairwell. Please check in all children before taking them to the nursery, their classroom, or to the worship service.
