Weekly Programs

Sundays @ 9:45 & 11:15AM  |  Childcare @ 8:30AM
Nursery Building

We believe the development of your child's faith begins at a very early age. These beginning stages of spiritual development are the foundation upon which God builds a child's future faith. Since all children learn and develop differently, our nursery is divided by developmental stages providing children the opportunity to grow and learn at their own pace.

Sundays @ 9:45 & 11:15AM  |  Childcare @ 8:30AM
Preschool area, lower Fellowship Hall

We know and understand the importance of giving your preschooler the spiritual foundation of knowing who Jesus is. In our Preschool ministry we are focused on telling and teaching them, in a creative way, how they are loved so well and so completely by Jesus. All Bible lessons are designed to present the message of God's love in a way your child will understand and will be reiterated in our small group time, activities, crafts and Bible memorization.

Sundays @ 9:45 & 11:15AM
Children's Building

Young elementary-age kids are in a constant state of discovery. Think about all they are learning every day! We are dedicated to providing your child with the spiritual tools they will need to lead a life worthy of God's praise! Our goal is to tap into the way that children naturally learn so that they can begin to know who God is, how He sees them, and how much He loves them!

For children who have been baptized these classes serve as a good reinforcement with a message worth repeating. For other children who have not made a profession of faith, the classes give new insights into their relationship with Christ. We hope you will join us.
