Sunday Mornings


Children are welcome and encouraged in all of our services.

Infants & Toddlers

We believe that they learn their faith and worship by participating with their families in one of our unique services. There are nursery is in room 107, and  aound the corner, in room 108 you will find the toddler/preschool room.  Please sign the children in and out, and make our nursery staff aware of any allergies or special needs.  In consideration of the others we ask that you not bring in your sick children.  Llabeling your supplies would be most helpful.  We have a very competent paid nursery staff with volunteer assistants, eager to love and nurture your child.

During the 8:50am Contemporary Service

Our contemporary service takes place in our Central Hall.  Children actively participate at the beginning of the service as acolytes.  There are worship bags located in a basket near the stage for children to have activities to work on during the service if they would like to stay with you for the duration of the service.  However, after the welcome music and greeting times we invite children (up to 5th grades) to come to the front for a children’s message.  We will then leave the service together to attend a special Kids Worship Service with music, prayers, praises, God sightings, a message followup, scripture memorization and more.  Some 5th graders prefer to stay in the service which can ben beneficial as they are now able to still long enough and comprehend the sermon’s message.

Sunday School begins at 10:00 am  

Our preschool Sunday School class is in room 108.  |  Elementary-aged children grades K-5th meet in room 111.

The children’s education wing is upstairs, down the hall from the services, and to the right. Please sign your children our with their teacher each Sunday at the end of the Sunday School hour at 10:50.  We are not able to release your kids to any siblings. We are enjoying Group’s Dig-In Curriculum that has so much to offer.  Lessons are bible story based and offer interactive stories, crafts, games and science experiments. It is amazing how something written so long ago gives us practical real-life advice for all ages.  Click here to see an example.
