Children & Youth
The purpose of our children's ministry is to nurture the spiritual growth of children (pre-K to grade 5) and their families in a safe, caring and creative Christian environment.
Sunday School Children in pre-K through grade 5 can grow in their knowledge of God through creative workshops in art, cooking & games, storytelling & drama, and science. Kids are encouraged to join the congregation at the Gathering Time at 10:15 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Children are dismissed to their Sunday School classes at 10:30 a.m. after the Children's Time. Classes are divided by age except during the summer when an all-ages Sunday School is offered for children up to 5th grade (older kids can come as helpers). Sunday school is also available for Youth (grades 6-8 and 9-12) from September through June. During the summer, youth may help in the all-ages Sunday School class.
Nursery/Child Care We provide safe, loving care for infants and toddlers during both Sunday worship services, beginning at 9:00 a.m.
