Sunday School

Our Sunday school classes are traditional in format, but they are anything but boring!  With age-appropriate, relational, experiential, applicable, and learner-based Bible study and activities, kids are engaged and excited about their faith.  At Sunday School, the focus is on building a foundation in the Word while growing closer to one another and most importantly, to Christ.

Children’s Church

Interaction is the name of this game!!!  The new program has games, songs, Bible exploration and a new focus on prayer….we even have a wacky new “guest” join the kids at the end of class for a fun recap and personal application!  Kids are dismissed from the 11:00 service and you can pick them up afterwards in the same room (1st/2nd grade SS room-North Hallway). Fun and fellowship await your PreK-2nd grader in this exciting, new atmosphere!

Preschool-2nd grade
Sunday mornings
Children are dismissed during the 11:00 a. m. service

On The Move

OTM is our youth group type experience during the 11:00 service for 3rd-6th graders.  This class will prepare them for the transition from elementary to our youth programs. Kids will be dismissed from the service and will share fellowship including music, games and snacks at the beginning of class. Then our kids will take part in an interactive message before ending with a recap activity, music videos and a renewed vision of prayer. This is an exciting addition and one more opportunity for our kids to grow in their faith.

Midweek

Wednesdays are a chance for us to keep our faith alive in the midst of our family’s busy schedules.  Kids come to Midweek excited to see their friends and have some fun!  The PreK and K-3rd will have their own programs to learn how to implement God into their daily lives.  Skits, games, music, and fun will lead our children on God’s path for them.  We’ll integrate a large group format with a small group feel.  Join us Wednesdays in September through April for some midweek fun!

Midweek Preteen Grapple 4th-6th Grade

Somewhere between leaving childhood and treading wide-eyed into the teenage years lurks a thousand bewildering questions…”Why am I not perfect?”  “Why doesn’t everyone go to heaven?”  With Grapple, kids will learn how to search the Bible for answers and build a faith foundation that guides wise choices!  Games, activities, and a small group atmosphere.
