Sunday School

We are OPEN and thrilled to see you in person on Sunday mornings during our 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. services! Each child matters to God and to us! Our goal is to provide a safe, secure, and nurturing environment for teaching weekly biblical themes to our kids and fulfilling our mission to equip, inspire, and help kids grow to love God, love others, and serve the world!
As we start the fall season, we are offering two classroom options; one for the families who want their kids & volunteers masked in the classroom and another for those who do not wish their kids & volunteers masked (optional). We will evaluate as we go through the year.

Nursery - Building A

(4 MONTHS UP TO 3 YEARS AS OF 9/1/2021)

Nursery Sunday Ministry
The Nursery is a safe, caring, and fun environment where our dedicated volunteer teams share Jesus' love with infants, crawlers, and toddlers. Our goal is to help your child learn as early as possible that Jesus loves them and to enjoy coming to church each Sunday!

 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.  Ages 4 months to not yet 3 years old by 9/1/2021

We provide age-appropriate rooms during each service. Infants and crawlers play and snuggle, while listening to kid-friendly music and books that tell them about Jesus. In our toddler classes, we teach a Bible lesson, sing worship songs, color, pray, and play with hands-on lesson-based activities.
