Children


Welcome! We believe that Christian Education is important, especially for children. We hope that our programs will help your child grow in relationship with God and others. Our primary goal is to help children know they are loved by God and by their church family. For everyone's safety, our children's activities are currently virtual. Feel free to contact Vicki Fannin, Director of Christian Education for Children (birth through 5th grade), at

Sunday Mornings

--Nursery
Nursery is available for children preschool and younger. Trained nursery staff will greet your little ones with open arms! Every member of our childcare team has passed a background check, received CPR/First Aid certification and completed our children and youth protection training course. The nursery opens on Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. 


Sunday School Classrooms 
3 & 4 year olds: Room 102
Kindergarten & 1st Grade : Room 207 (upstairs)
2nd & 3rd Grades: Room 209 (upstairs)
4th & 5th Grades: Room 208 (upstairs)
Nursery care is available for birth-2 year olds in Room 106.



Children’s Worship for Kindergarten - 2nd Graders (resumption date TBD)
After the Prayer with Young Disciples (children’s sermon), K-2nd graders may go with their leaders to Room 206 (upstairs across the hall from the women’s bathroom) . Parents, please sign them out in the hallway with Vicki and then pick up in Room 206 after church ends. During Children’s Worship, we will learn together as we do age appropriate Bible activities. We will also have a time for tithing. We will pick our cause that we want to tithe towards and collect each week for it. Children are encouraged to bring change to donate. We usually have extra coins for those who forget. 

We do not have Children’s Worship on second Sundays because that is our Communion Sunday and we encourage the kids to remain in church with their families and partake in communion.
