In order to ensure a safe environment for our children, all employees and volunteers involved in preschool and/or children’s ministry have consented to and passed a criminal background check.
Childcare (infants - 4 years) is regularly provided during the Sunday morning worship hour, Wednesday night Bible study, and women’s weekday studies. For Sunday morning sign-in, parents of preschoolers will use our automated check-in process.
Sunday School [Sundays, 9:30-10:15a]
We have a wonderful staff of dedicated and caring teachers each Sunday morning during the Sunday school hour. All children (infants-5th grade) are received and picked up in our children’s wing located directly beneath the sanctuary. Parents and guardians may continue to an adult Bible study of their own located in Fellowship Hall one floor below.
Praiseville - K5-3rd [Sundays, 11a-12p]
Praiseville is our fun-filled and God-centered children’s church for K5-3rd grade kids. Weekly lessons use puppets and upbeat music as a means to bring the Bible to life so that God’s character & work can be better understood.
AWANA - 3yrs-5th Grade [Sundays, 5:30-7:00p; Aug-Apr]
A worldwide ministry program, AWANA (Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed) helps churches and parents raise children and youth to know, love, and serve Christ. Emphasizing the importance of Scripture memorization, AWANA evangelizes and disciples the next generation through healthy mentor and peer relationships as well as dynamic fun for children, teens, and adults alike.
