The children’s Christian education ministry offers classroom instruction on Sunday mornings from 9:00 a.m.to 10:00 a.m. (beginning September 10, 2023), before the morning worship service. Classrooms are on the first floor of the Education building. Pre-K through 5th/6th Graders learn from our denominational publisher’s “Show Me Jesus” curriculum; a two-year cycle designed to teach the Bible apply the basic tenets of the Reformed faith in an age-appropriate fashion.
How we welcome children in worship affects how they respond to the Church, God, and others. They are welcome and invited to worship with their families throughout service. We also offer a children's church, designed for pre-readers, to help equip them for meaningful participation in corporate worship. Parents may take 4-6-year-olds to room 147 during the worship hymn that precedes the sermon. The teaching team guides and trains the children using the PCA's discipleship ministry's "Teach Me to Worship" curriculum.
Nursery and Toddlers
The Nursery and Toddler ministry supports parents by providing for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs for our youngest children during Sunday school and the morning worship service.
Disability Care Team
The Disability Care Team works with families and church ministries to provide extra support, when helpful, for those with special needs. Volunteers may serve in a variety of ways, including being a 1:1 buddy, providing extra support to a specific student while serving as a classroom assistant, and spending time with a child during fellowship times so parents can more freely engage with others.
Kids Check In Process
For our children's classes, nursery and toddlers rooms, we have a child check in and out station. Children receive a name badge and we receive a parent's cell number in case of emergency.
