BASICS

Nursery

Children younger than 3 years old can go to the Nursery. We have a Nursery for 1 day through 12 months and a Toddler nursery for 2 & 3 year olds. Our nursery is staffed by trained, caring child care professionals.

Sunday School - Let Your Children Come
Who: 3 years old - 12th grade
When: Every Sunday at 9:30 a.m.
Assembly with snacks & music - Sonshine Room
At 9:45 a.m., children go to their classrooms located in the Children's Wing to learn fundamental Bible stories, enjoy crafts, and share God's love.

Why?
  • To learn about God's love as shown through Jesus Christ
  • To build friendships with other children who are a part of God's family
  • To raise their voices in songs of praise
  • To enjoy teachers who care
Safe Sanctuaries
Our church is a "Safe Sanctuaries" church which means all adults working with children and youth are screened with a background check and trained to insure your child's safety.
