By experiencing worship together with their families,
children will internalize the importance of corporate worship.
Step by step, as children mature, they can understand more,
and participate more fully in the worship experience.
In the meantime, we have some helps for families with young children:
The Infant Nursery, Toddlers Room, and 3's Room are fully staffed during both Worship Services for children birth through three years old.
A Bible lesson is taught to Toddlers and 3's during the 9:15 a.m. Service.
For older children, Kids 3-D Sunday School is offered during the 9:15 a.m. Service.
We offer Children's Bulletins:
activity pages that engage children in the same teaching theme
as the Message during the Worship Service.
Look for them to the right - just as you enter the Worship Center.
3-6 yrs., green and 7-12 yrs., blue
The row of seats immediately to your left as you enter the Worship Center
are convenient for families with young children - they are in easy access
to the Lobby should you need take your child out of the Service.
AGES: Based on your child's readiness:
you have the option of either leaving your three-year-old in the 3's Class
during the entire 11:00 a.m. Worship Service,
or bringing your three-year-old to the first part of the Service with you,
and then sending him/her to the 3's Class when the children are dismissed .
Four year olds attend the first part of the 11:00 service with their families,
then have the option of attending Kids Worship
when the children are dismissed during Worship Through Giving.
KIDS WORSHIP is available for four yr. olds - 1st graders.
During the latter part of the 11:00 a.m. Worship Service the children are dismissed
during Worship Through Giving for this age appropriate teaching/activity time. Children will learn a Bible story and will do a
craft activity to help them remember the story in a tangible way. A "home-link" paper will be sent home each time to
inform parents of what their child learned about in Kids Worship. During some Kids Worship sessions, the children may also sing,
have a snack, learn a Bible verse, or play a game. Children will be ready to be picked up directly following the 11:00 service.
