Sunday morning children's ministries
Sunday morning programming is held throughout the school year with classes for 3 year olds up to 6th grade. The Grove begins at 9:00 and ends at 10:15. The curriculum we use is from ReThink Group, and this curriculum helps us to equip children and parents in navigating the Bible; personalizing Scripture; dialoging with God (public and private prayer); sharing and defending their faith, and worshiping with their lives.
Our time on Sunday mornings involves both large and small group facets, a time of worship together, and activites that will reinforce the solid biblical content we will be covering. We also provide take home assignments (Parent Cues and Kids "God Time" Devotionals) which give parents the opportunity to engage with their children throughout the week. These take home pages are available below.
With many young families in our congregation, our nurseries are very active! During our worship service, we offer two nurseries: one for ages 0-23 months and one for 2 & 3 year olds. The nurseries also get used throughout the week by several different groups. All of the caretakers in our nurseries have completed child protection paperwork, ensuring that all children will be cared for in a safe, comfortable and loving environment. Contact person for the nursery is Mandy Hall, and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Garden is a worship alternative for children ages 4 through 2nd grade. Children will be dismissed during the worship service. Interested parents can sign their children up in the foyer before the worship service.
