Currently, our nursery is only staffed first Sundays of the month with two background checked volunteers. People are welcome to use the nursery at other times, but must stay with their children. Our nursery has space to play, a diaper changing table, gliders, and a toddler bathroom. Please let Pastor Cristina know if the nursery is missing any supplies that you need.
Children’s Sunday School
Preschool: Kids are welcome to start attending our preschool class once they are potty trained. Every week kids gather for a play based curriculum to learn about and explore Bible stories through music, play, and stories. Curriculum: Frolic.
Kindergarten-2nd grade: The K, 1, & 2 class meets weekly to hear a Bible story and do related fun activities. Curriculum: Smyth & Helwys Faith Steps.
3rd–5th Grade: Our 3rd–5th grade class meets every Sunday with a Bible story, discussion, & craft. Curriculum: Smyth & Helwys Faith Steps.
Following Sunday School, kids are brought to the Children’s Church room for a time of movement (playing outside, singing and dancing, going to the gym, etc.) and a snack. This time allows kids to get the wiggles out and have a snack before “big church,” while their parents are able to enjoy the fellowship time in the narthex.
During 11am service
During the 11:00am service, children will be dismissed for Children’s Church about halfway through the service as the Doxology is sung. At children’s church, kids typically have a lesson based off of the main sermon, but at a level that is geared just for them, followed by a time of work and play. It is up to parents and kids as to when they stop going to children’s church (towards upper elementary school, many kids start to prefer to stay in the service instead of coming to children’s church). At the end of the service, parents will come and pick up their kids from the Children’s Church room. [Note: on the first Sunday of the month, there will be no Children’s Church, so the whole church can have communion together.]
