Sunday Mornings:    

Nursery Care (age 6 weeks – Pre-K): The Nursery Team represents God’s loving care and provision as they meet the needs of young children. Parents can enjoy their time of worship or study, knowing their little one is in good hands. The nursery is located on the first floor of the Student Ministries Building during all three worship services: 8:30, 9:30, and 10:45 a.m. Children age 3 through pre-k will attend Sunday School in the same location at the 9:30 hour.

What to Bring:
Please label all items that you will be laving with your child. Ask any of our nursery staff for a bag tag for your child's diaper bag or backpack. For infants, bring diapers, a bottle of breast milk or formula, and a pacifier or lovey if needed to soothe your child. For potty-trained children, extra clothes including underwear, pants, shirt, and socks. Refrain from allowing your child to bring toys or snacks from home. We will provide a snack at the 9:30 hour.

Sick Policy:
To keep our nursery and Pre-K area healthy, we ask that parents keep children home if they are exhibiting or have experienced the following in the last 24 hours: fever, cough, vomiting, diarrhea, unknown rash, discharge from the eyes, illness being treated with antibiotics for less than 24 hours, or a runny nose with green or yellow discharge.

Sunday School at 9:30 a.m.
We want to help children develop a BIG FAITH in our BIG GOD. We present His story – THE story that explains the world - and invite children to find their place in that story. Through a combination of large group teaching and small group activities, every lesson elevates Jesus the Redeemer to His rightful place in the storyline and helps children see themselves as part of a faith community of past, present, and future believers.

Early Childhood (Pre-K & Below): 1st Floor of the Student Ministries Building.
Lower Elementary (Kindergarten – 2nd grade): 1st Floor of the Education Building
Upper Elementary & Middle School (3rd - 6th grade): 2nd Floor of the Education Building

Wednesday Evenings- 6 - 7:30 p.m.

Kindergarten-6th Grade Midweek KidsLife: Authentic relationships are developed weekly based on prayer, encouragement, accountability, and the study of God’s Word. We will be reading through the Bible this year and learning more about His people. Through each story, Jesus will be recognized as the Redeemer, the firm and unchanging foundation of our lives. Wednesday evenings begin with a meal at 6 p.m. and end at 7:30 p.m.

Childcare for children pre-k and under is provided for parents registered in an adult study or serving in some capacity.
