Children's Worship is for children ages 2 - 5 years old. The children are excused from the morning worship service when announced, usually during the offering and assemble in the Fellowship Room downstairs. Please bring your child downstairs to register and check them into Children's Worship. Parents can pick up their child in the same room downstairs after the service.
In the summer there is often no Children's Worship offered, but a Wiggle room (located across from the Nursery) instead if you feel the need to leave the sanctuary and seek a place for you and your child.
Sunday School classes are offered for young people grades Kindergarten-12. The purpose of Sunday School is to train our children in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. Classes meet on Sunday mornings at 9 a.m. and run from September (after Labor Day) through April, with occasional breaks that follow the local Christian school calendar. You can check the schedule on the events page. All grades will meet directly in their rooms downstairs. Please pick up your child at 9:45 AM from their classrooms.
2023-204 runs Sept. 10 - Apr. 28
