Children's Classes & Ministry

 

Sunday School Classes

  • ages 3 yrs to 5th Grade
  • Sunday morning from 9:45 to 10:45
Our classes include:
  • Room 158 - 3 year olds
  • Room 160 - Pre-K and K
  • Room 154 - 1st and 2nd Grade
  • Room 162 - 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grades
Our Children's Classes are using the "Grow, Proclaim, Serve" Curriculum from Abingdon Press. 
In this program we want the children to:
  • Grow in Faith
  • Proclaim the Word of God
  • Server God and Neighbor
Our focal scripture verse is:
"Your faithfulness is growing by leaps and bounds, and the love that all of you have for each other is increasing." (2 Thessalonians 1:3)
 
Monthly Themes
Each month the sessions begins with a Bible verse and a "Leap of Faith" that is the main idea for the month.  The curriculum is presented in age appropriate lessons that include the Bible story, crafts, music, a short video, and/or games.
 
Parent Pickup
Children need to be picked up by a parent or designated adult so our leaders can get to the Worship services. The exception is the 3 year old class, which stays in the same room, with paid staff, during the Worship services.
 

 

Children's Church

  • Pre-K to 2nd Grade
  • Sunday morning during 11:00am Worship
Children are asked to sit with their parents during the beginning of the 11:00am Worship services. At the appropriate time the children will leave the Worship area, with designated adults, to walk to the Children's Church classroom - Room 162.
 
Children's Church uses the Large Group the "Grow, Proclaim, Serve" curriculum from Abingdon Press. Although the main lesson is the same as the one covered in Sunday School, the crafts, games, and other activities are different.
 
Children must be picked up by a parent or designated adult immediately following the worship service.
