Seeking to Raise Enthusiastic Followers of Christ
by helping them love to come to church and teaching them the Bible while they're here!
We do this in a myriad of ways, beginning with our Sunday morning program for infants - 6th grade during both 1st and 2nd services.
Babies - 6th Grade Sunday School Classes
1st Service (9:00-10:10) Sunday School classes:
Fawns: 0 - 24 months
Chipmunks: 2 years
Raccoons: 3-5 years
Eagles: 1st - 2nd grade
Sea Lions: 3rd - 4th grade
Sasquatches: 5th - 6th grade
The Fawns, Chipmunks, and Raccoons Sunday School classes are filled with intentional play activities, Bible lessons, crafts, singing, snacks, offering, memory verses, a puppet show, and when the weather permits, free play in the preschool playground! (Yes, even our babies and toddlers have a Bible Class!)
Our Owls - Sasquatches Sunday School classes incorporate developmentally appropriate teachings using Biblically solid curriculum and classroom schedules. View a glimpse of our Sunday School classes on this excellent video.
During 2nd Service (10:30-11:40) for 0-5 years, we offer Sunday School classes. These are similar to 1st Service (above) but not identical.
During 2nd Service (10:30-11:40) for K-5th grade, we offer a large group Christian Camp/VBS style service called “2nd Service Kids Church” (2KC) located upstairs in The Island (our large youth group room). We memorize Bible verses through speech and songs, eat snack during a video lesson and teaching time, and play organized games. Free play follows until parents check out their children. For 6th graders, we offer "2nd Service Kids Church Plus" (KC+) which is an older version of our K-5th Kids Church program with older age-appropriate lessons, videos, discussion, and activities.
2nd Service Kids Church
Between 1st and 2nd services, Fawns, Chipmunks, and Raccoons play freely in their classrooms and playground, while K-6th graders are escorted to “The Island” (info above) for free play and 2nd Service Kids Church, allowing parents to leisurely visit after service and participate in one of our Sunday morning adult classes.
All of our teachers are background checked and trained, and we utilize a security check-in and check-out system.
For your first time, please enter the main lobby and visit the Welcome Center. If you'd like, you may download, complete, and print our fillable FAMILY VISITOR FORM and bring it to the Welcome Center, expediting your children's check-in. We serve snack in our classes, so if your child has food restrictions, please provide an alternate snack so they can eat a snack too.
We also have a lovely Mothers of Infants room available during both services where you can relax in privacy with your infant while participating in the service via livestream.
We ask that all families stay home and get healthy if anyone in the family has experienced vomitting, diarrhea, or had a fever in the last 24 hours.
We also have SPECIAL EVENTS throughout the year such as Vacation Bible School (VBS) (June 26-June 30, 2023), our Harvest Festival (October), our Gingerbread House Making Party (December), and Kids Spring Weekend.
