Children’s Sunday School (9:30 – 10:30) for students in 1st – 5th Grade meet with Angela in the room next to the Chapel.

Children’s Church (10:45 – noon) for students in 1st – 5th Grade meet with Pastor Will in the Chapel. During the summer, we like to give Mrs. Angela a break and will have Children’s Church during our 1st hour (9:30-10:30) followed by our Family Sunday format (normally done on 4th Sundays throughout the school year where children attend the regular service of worship – 10:45-noon) 

Our purpose is to make sure each child knows Jesus loves them, died and rose again to give us life, and they are encouraged to be an example to others “…in the way they live, love, in their faith and purity.” I Timothy 4:12.

We believe that by the age of 12, a child has already formed their most lasting impressions of God and the fundamentals that will shape who they become as they continue to grow.  So we know how critical it is to help you get your child on the correct path during these formative years.

Our kids sing contemporary Christian music, have opportunities to play an instrument or sing during offering, as well as pray. In addition, there are upbeat media segments, scripture-based object lessons, and always a ton of fun.  We encourage kids to fully participate so when they become adults, being active in church and inviting unchurched friends and neighbors is something they are comfortable with and comes naturally.

Our volunteer staff does more than show up on Sunday mornings.  They participate in the kids’ lives by attending their school lunches, sports activities, school programs, recitals etc. when invited.  They are passionate about wanting each child to always know and feel they are loved and important.

Ministries include: Children’s Church (Sunday mornings at 10:45am), Church Camps, special nights out for kids and their families.
