Building the Kingdom of God Through Following Jesus Christ

 

 
SUNDAY SCHOOL - 9:15-10:15
Children's Building
 
   Bring the kids to Sunday School! We offer classes for all ages starting at pre-K through the 6th Grade. Please know that your child will be loved and cared for by their teachers. Join us on Sunday and see what a difference just one hour of Christian fellowship can mean to your child!
 
Nursery – Located next to the Adult Classrooms
 
Infants and toddlers are lovingly cared for by our Nursery Staff. There is always a First Aid/CPR trained worker in the Nursery.
 
 
Children's Sunday School
 
 "Everyone then who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock." (Matthew 7:24–25)
 
At each age level on every Sunday the children will be invited to a faith experience. It is during this time that they can come to a better understanding of God and what God calls them to do and be. They come to know Jesus as the Son of God and take his messages to heart. Activities, crafts, stories, and games will contribute to this faith experience. At the end of the time together, the children will have had a chance to meet God and to open themselves for a life-changing transformation.
  Jesus said, "Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them,
 
 
 

 
CHILDREN'S CHURCH
 
On most Sundays, children from pre-K to 3rd grade are invited to go to children’s church after children’s moments in 10:30 worship. Children are always welcome to stay in worship with parents, but "children's church" offers an optional way for the youngest people to engage in worship in a way that fits their age.  Adult leaders help the kids connect with God through stories, games, songs, and crafts.  Parents must pick children up after worship in the Fellowship Hall.
 
 

TODDLER WORSHIP
 
During worship, parents may bring their toddlers to the Toddler Worship Room next to the sanctuary by the elevators.  This time of worship is from 10:30-11:30 during our Sunday Worship.

CHILDREN'S CHOIRS
 
 

 
Acolytes
 
The word "acolyte" comes from the Greek akoleuthos which means "to follow." An acolyte is a follower of Jesus Christ who assists in public worship. Our acolytes light candles and perform other services as requested by the pastors. Acolytes are in grades 3 through 6. Acolytes serve at the 10:30 sanctuary service.  Kelly Woodard is our adult volunteer.

It is our tradition that our 6th graders join together as a Confirmation Class during each school year.
