Nursery (6 weeks - 3 years)
Our nursery provides a safe and loving environment where children six weeks to three years of age encounter the love of God through his people, allowing parents to worship and attend spiritual formation groups with confidence and peace of mind. Beginning at two years of age, children enter a program of age-appropriate biblical learning where simple stories and activities nurture the developing faith of our youngest children. The nursery operates during both the 9:25 and 10:55 worship services.
Crosswalk (3 years - 5th grade)
The good times begin at 9:10 am when children and leaders interact while playing games in small groups. Children are free to choose any activity that interests them, from board games and chess, to memory games or crafts.
Bible teaching begins at 9:25 with a five minute “check-in” time of sharing in small groups. The Bible lesson is presented by gifted teachers to a large group consisting of two grades. Drama, story telling, object lessons, media and interactive learning keep the kids eager to see what comes next. Age-graded small groups provide a time for kids to process the learning of the day, form relationships and share personal experiences, concerns and prayer requests.
Sixth graders meet in their own classroom. Biblical instruction, spiritual formation, and discussion of issues unique to preteens make this an ideal community within which sixth graders may grow in faith and prepare for the teenage years.
Family worship at 10:55 am is enhanced by a children's bulletin and a "worship bag" containing items that keep hands busy as the mind and heart absorb the worship experience. Use of media screens and great praise music make this a great opportunity for kids to learn how to worship in the community of faith.
