Children


Welcome! We believe that Christian Education is important, especially for children. We hope that our programs will help your child grow in relationship with God and others. Our primary goal is to help children know they are loved by God and by their church family.

Sunday Mornings -- Sunday School and Children's Worship 
Sunday school @ 9:30; Worship @ 10:30. The 10:30 worship service includes a special time for the children. Please note that we do not have Sunday School during the summer months. Instead, come have breakfast with us each summer Sunday at 9:30! 

Children’s Worship for Kindergarten - 2nd Graders After the Prayer with Young Disciples (children’s sermon), K-2nd graders may go with their leaders to Room 206 (upstairs across the hall from the women’s bathroom) . Parents, please sign them out in the hallway with Mary and then pick up in Room 206 after church ends. During Children’s Worship, we will be learning together and going through the different parts of our worship services including reading the weekly scripture and doing some sort of activity with it. We will also have a time for tithing. We will pick our cause that we want to tithe towards and collect each week for it. Children are encouraged to bring change to donate. We usually have extra coins for those who forget. 

We do not have Children’s Worship on second Sundays because that is our Communion Sunday and we encourage the kids to remain in church with their families and partake in communion.
