For Children Birth-5th grade

9:00am SUNDAY SCHOOL (Grades K-2)
We start in the Sanctuary, then move upstairs to Kingdom City after the children’s moment. Our lessons include games, time for prayer, scripture lessons, and activities to take home for families to help integrate the lessons into their daily life.

9:00am & 11:00am WORSHIP (Grades 3-5)
Children in grades 3-5 stay in worship for the whole service. We believe worship is a core element of spiritual development for children and adults. When we exclude children from worship, we fail to help them build the skills they need to become adults who are familiar with and find worship meaningful. Additional spiritual formation for grades 3-5 will be in retreats, events, choir, family resources, and church involvement. 

10:00am MUSIC (Grades K-5)
9:00 am kids can stay in Kingdom City; other kids can be dropped off in Kingdom City. The children’s music program is done in partnership with our Music  & Arts Ministry. We believe music is an integral part of children’s spiritual and theological growth and we nurture this through weekly music and choir.

NURSERY CARE (Birth-Age 5)
Nursery care is available on Sunday mornings during all services in Kingdom City on the 2nd floor. We also offer nursery care during special events at the church for those who attend. Kids are loved, read to, given room to play, and learn about God’s love for them.

We offer a variety of events for children to participate in throughout the year! Learn more about Children's Spiritual Formation
