Sundays for Kids
Nursery (0-2) & Wiggling Worship (3-4) start off in our lower level in their classrooms where they will be cared for and taught about God’s love by caring teachers. Nursery is located in the lower level of the church. Children ages 3-5 are invited to our Preschool classroom in the Lower Level of the Church DURING the worship service for singing, a Bible story and craft.
252 Kids Church: Children from Kindergarten to 4th grade start off in worship with parents and then are dismissed after our musical worship set to Kids Church. Please feel free to accompany your kids to the lower level and hand them off to their teachers. Parents please pick up your children at the end of the service.
Teen Sunday School: (aka Catechism) Students meet after the service to talk about growing deeper in the knowledge of God’s word.
The best thing for kids is family
One big theme in our kids programming is the importance of learning at home. Kids grow the most spiritually when they have great conversations at home. So we work really hard at putting good resources and conversation starters in the hands of parents and guardians. Each week our Sunday kids programming sends home discussion questions, character development and Bible verses so that parents have what they can use to help their kids grow at home.
We’ve also noticed that inter-generational relationships are really effective ways of learning and growing to be balanced. So we encourage people of all ages and preferences to gather together and build relationships.
Annual (the week before Easter) free celebration open to the whole community. We have an egg hunt, bounce house, games, face painting, petting zoo, story station and MUCH MORE.
One of the scariest verses in the Bible, if you think about it, is Judges 2:10 “And all that generation also were gathered to their fathers. And there arose another generation after them who did not know the Lord or the work that he had done for Israel.” Well, that’s not gonna happen here. “Passing the Gospel to the next generation” is a deeply held core value of any healthy church. We prefer Psalm 78:5-6 “He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers to teach to their children, that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments.”
VBS: Kids Camp
An incredible four day experience for kids during the summer where they have a blast and learn about Jesus.
The purpose of the Friendship program is to nurture the spiritual growth of people with intellectual disabilities in the context of personal and meaningful relationships. Here’s how it works:
- Sessions often start in a large group with singing, sharing, and prayer.
- Next, a Bible lesson is shared. This usually includes group participation, often in drama format.
- This is followed by one-on-one time, where mentors and friends meet to discuss the Bible lesson and pray together. Often this time includes activities related to the Bible study.
- Finally, the group gathers again for social time and a closing prayer or song.
