Every Sunday at 10 AM, our children come to morning worship in the sanctuary with their families. The children are dismissed around 10:15 to go to their Sunday School Assembly time. In their assembly, the children pray together and practice music which they sing in worship on our monthly Family Sundays.
Following Assembly, the children go to their Sunday School classes; (Pre-K/Kindergarten, 1st-2nd Grade, 3rd-4th Grade, and 5th Grade). Class time centers around a specific Bible story and craft activity.
In addition to beginning worship each week with the whole church family, we have monthly Family Sundays. On these Sundays, the children sing in worship and will experience a special childrens sermon before heading to their Sunday School classes.
Once a month, the children participate in a Helping Hands Project where they have an opportunity to reach out to others in our church, our community
and around the world. In addition, the children give an offering every week that goes to sponsor a child in a developing country via Children International.
ADVENTURES IN LEARNING
Adventures in Learning is an after-school tutorial program for local at-risk children. In December, our Sunday School children decorated stockings for each child. The Adventures children received their stockings filled with gifts purchased by our church at their annual Christmas Party. Each year our church provides $20,000 for this ministry.
The Angel Tree is our annual ministry at Christmas time where we take requests from area ministries and agencies. The requests are placed on a Christmas tree in our chapel foyer. Church members take therequests and purchase the necessary items to help people in our area. When a request is
taken from the tree, an angel is put in its place. The children make these angels in Sunday School.
A large number of toys, books, clothing, tools, stamps, art supplies and cookware were given in Christ's name. It isa wonderful way to celebrate Christmas!
Throughout the year, we provide special events in which the children will participate. Activities include a Christmas Eve Pageant, a week of Vacation Bible School, Christmas Caroling, Holiday Parties, and our all-church picnic each spring.
NURSERY FOR INFANTS AND TODDLERS
During Sunday morning worship, we provide paid caregivers for your infant or toddler. The nursery is located in room 204.
