DURING SUNDAY WORSHIP (9:30AM)

Infant and Toddler Nursery (birth2 years) 

Our newly remodeled infant and toddler nursery provides a safe atmosphere of love and care for our littlest ones.

  • We have separate, age-appropriate sections for toddlers and for infants.
  • Each child must be signed in by a parent or guardian.
  • Parents are asked to label any personal items the child might bring to nursery.
  • Pagers are available upon request.

 

Little Lambs (ages 2-4)

Toddlers and young preschoolers are introduced to Bible stories about God and his Son Jesus using a play-centered approach full of songs, crafts, free play time, and a healthy snack. Little Lambs is led by a team of dedicated and nurturing teachers during Sunday morning worship.

 

Children’s Worship (preschool – 1st grade)

Children in 4s preschool, kindergarten, and first grade join their parents for the first part of the main sanctuary worship, and are then invited for Children’s Worship in our downstairs centers for songs, story object lessons, and a variety of meaningful response activities.


AFTER SUNDAY WORSHIP (10:50AM-11:45AM)

After Worship Extended Care (birth1st grade)

After the main worship service, childcare is offered in the downstairs nurseries for children birth through 1st grade so that parents have an opportunity to attend either The Commons, Adult Bible Studies, or choir practice, or to give parents an opportunity to help in other children’s or youth ministries during that hour.

 

G.R.A.C.E. Growing Radically As Christ’s Explorers (grades 2-6)

Grades 2-5 use The Gospel Project curriculum, children are immersed chronologically in the gospel to learn that the Bible is not just a collection of stories but one unified storyGod’s story of redemption.  A variety of interactive learning techniques is used in multi-grade small groups.  

Students in Grade 6 use the rfour curriculum which, through the use of interactive activities, Bible study, and movie clips, instructs these youth on how to be disciples of Jesus and how to participate in the Kingdom of God. These age-appropriate lessons serve as a transition time from The Gospel Project curriculum to the Heidelberg Catechism lessons of the BLAST (middle school) group.

G.R.A.C.E. meets following the morning worship form 10:50am – 11:45am.
