NURSERY
0-24 months of age

The Nursery is located on the northeast side of the sanctuary, past the playground. It is a ministry run by gracious adult and youth volunteers, who will show the love of God to your infants and toddlers. They are happy to play with them, hold them, feed them, and change them, to keep them growing up in the Lord while you enjoy the service with your family.

We ask that you would please pay attention to your security code on your claim slip in case we need to get a hold of you during the service for any reason.

LOWER ELEMENTARY
Kindergarten to 3rd Grade

Kindergarten to 3rd Grade is built for kids to grow in the Lord. It is full of fun and interactive stations for kids to meet with the Lord at their level. Your children will experience church in two unique fazes. First, they will enjoy fun games, interactive worship, an live skits as one big group. Then they will split up according to grade level and learn the Bible lesson at their level. They will learn how to pray together and fellowship in small groups and then reinforce the lesson with a craft.

We encourage parents to fellowship with one another and get to know their teachers after the service as we welcome you in to be a part of what the Lord is doing.
