Regular Hours

for

Sunday School / Child Care

 

Sundays, 10:00 am

Classes are designed with age appropriate curriculum (age 3 through 5th grade) including Bible stories, crafts, and activities that support the day’s lesson. All classes reference the Bible and all have a single Bible point that is emphasized continuously through the month. A greeter or person at the Guest Services desk would be happy to give directions to classrooms. 

 

  • 6 weeks – 3 years: Childcare is provided in the children’s wing.
  • 3 years – 5th grade: Classes are in the children’s wing. 

 

Sundays, 11:15 am

Lessons are based on scripture used for that day’s worship. The 11:15 am worship experience is a family-oriented approach with children and adults learning the same message in worship and children’s church. A greeter or person at the Guest Services desk would be happy to give directions to classrooms.

 

  • 6 weeks – 3 years: Childcare is provided in the children’s wing.
  • 3 years – 1st grade: Worship in the children’s wing. 
  • 2nd grade & up: Please bring your children to worship with you. Children’s worship bags and age appropriate bulletins are provided. An usher can help you find them.

 

Note: Children are always welcome to join parents in worship. Children’s worship bags and age appropriate bulletins are always available.
