Sundays, 9:30 – 12:00 NOON | Wednesdays, 6:30 – 7:45 PM
Upon registering children, your family is greeted warmly by professionally-trained childcare teachers. Children enjoy a safe and nurturing environment while parents attend worship services and Christian Formation classes. Beginning at age 2, kids enjoy learning about how God cares for them through his creation, families, and friends.
We are a “Kids-Safe” church which means our teachers are background checked, safety-trained and certified and enjoy professional development opportunities. Assistants are screened carefully and have referenced childcare experience. The ratio of staff:kids is 1:4, and rooms and toys are cleaned after each service. We maintain an allergy-friendly environment. A mother/babycare area is available in the Infant room.
CHILDREN’S CHURCH, SUNDAYS, 9:30 AM
Children can’t wait to join their own energizing kids’ worship called “Children’s Church” on the lower level, dismissed during the Pastor’s message. Children enjoy Bible messages and teaching videos, group games and activities, and are then escorted back to the Sanctuary to rejoin their families at the conclusion of morning worship.
CHRISTIAN FORMATION (SUNDAY SCHOOL), SUNDAYS, 11:00 – 11:45 AM
