PURPOSE: The purpose of our ministry to children is to care for, instruct, and encourage them in their Christian faith and to assist parents in nurturing their children to glorify and enjoy God. We seek to engage the heads, hearts, and hands of our children with the Gospel message of salvation in Jesus Christ.
We provide Sunday school for our infants through 4th graders.
Most children's classes occur during the service. Classes are available for infants through 3 year olds at the beginning of the service. Pre K through 1st grade are dismissed midway through the worship service (prior to the sermon). When dismissed, they first gather together for a time of singing before their classes begin (in room 303) and then proceed to their classes.
Children of all ages are welcome to join the worship service instead of going to class.
When you arrive, visit our kids' ministry table located to the right of the auditorium. We have helpful volunteers who can answer your questions, help you sign-in your child for a class and point you in the right direction.
We are currently using The Gospel Story Bible by Marty Machowski to guide our curriculum for 3 yr olds through 4th grade. Those classes are also memorizing the Apostles' Creed currently.
