Children's Ministry

We love children! Our number one goal is to connect children with God; helping children to a higher understanding of who God is and what God has in store for their lives. We have several options for children to connect on their level.

Sunday Morning Children's Programs

Nursery is available for infants, toddlers and preschoolers during all of our Sunday morning services! We welcome all babies once they have turned 3 months old. Nursery is provided by a highly trained staff who have passed a background check and are first aid and CPR certified. 

Children's Church is available during our 8:30 and 11:00 Traditional Services. Kids 3-6 are escorted to the Chapel, on our First Floor Children's Ministry Wing, following the children's moment. Children's church is staffed by our nursery ministry team.

Sunday School is available at 9:45 for children 2 years old through 12th grade! Children must have turned 2 on or before August 31st of the current school year to be accepted in our "2 and 3 year old class." Our classes are:

2 and 3 year olds

Preschool 4 and 5 year olds

Kindergarten and 1st Grade 

2nd and 3rd Grade 

4th and 5th Grade

Youth - 6th through 12th grade ***Note, coming August 2017 - we will split our "youth" class into separate middle and high school classes!

Our Sunday school program meets year round! Promotion Sunday is the last Sunday in August so if you visit us during the summer months, please have your child attend the class with the grade that they just completed. If you homeschool, please base your Sunday school choice on age and not current grade level. 

Sunday Evening Programming 

The Sunday after Labor Day through the Sunday prior to Memorial Day, we meet at the church on Sunday evenings from 5-7 for worship, dinner, and age appropriate small groups for kids and youth in preschool through high school. Kids who turn 4 on or before August 31st of the current school year through seniors in high school are welcome to attend! 

We have two small groups for our children:

Accelerate - Preschool through First Grade 

Elevate - Second through Fifth Grade 

All small groups are staffed by qualified volunteers who are supervised by our Program Staff Team. Volunteers are required to pass a background check.
