Sunday Morning Childcare & Programs for School-Age Children

Childcare and classes are provided by loving teachers and caregivers for infants through 5th grade. Children are welcome in the sanctuary during adult worship, and, if the parent prefers, they may be dismissed for nursery care or Children’s Church at the time noted in the bulletin.

Our church nursery and classrooms are run completely by volunteers. All of these caregivers or teachers go through a thorough screening process, and background checks are required for all regular volunteers. We have a monitor who circulates during Sunday school and the Worship service helping keep our children safe each week.

Children pre-K – 5th Grade

9:00 am Bible classes during the Sunday School hour are offered for children ages 4 thru 5th grade.  We share the gospel with our children in a way that is both relevant to age and engaging to hearts and minds. Teachers offer a variety of exercises aimed at the child’s cognitive and social development, exercises that teach Christian truths and the application of that knowledge.

During the second hour of services, Children’s Church is for children 4 years old through 1st grade. This class is designed to teach children how to worship the Lord Jesus Christ in an age-appropriate atmosphere.

Children 6 weeks – age 3 years

Childcare is provided in our church nursery on the first floor at the rear of the building during both services.  Separate rooms are offered for each age group and the infant room also has an area for nursing mothers.  Care is provided by adult volunteers who have undergone a national background check, and are often assisted by volunteers from our church youth group.   Safety, security and hygiene are monitored carefully in these rooms.   A snack is provided during the second service and a teacher visits each room to tell a Bible story to the children and create an age-appropriate craft.
