Sunday School – Kids’ LIFEGroups


Wednesday Evenings – Kaleidoscope Kids

Infant and toddler nurseries are available during all worship services, Wednesday night activities, choir concerts and congregational meetings. We have a secure check in system, lots of fun toys and wonderful care givers ready to comfort and engage with your child. We do have pagers available, as well as a system to text you if your child needs you.

Activity bags are available near from Welcome Centers. Please return these bags at the end of the worship service.

During the school year, Kids’ LIFEGroups are offered Sunday mornings at 9:00 am and 10:30 am. These age-specific gatherings provide kids with an opportunity to build relationships with peers and adults while engaging with God’s word and learning about His deep love for us. Meets weekly, September 10, 2017–May 20, 2018, except for Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve and Easter Sunday.

Our evening starts at 6:16 with music and large group in the sanctuary. All families are welcome to join us for this time, even if you cannot stay for the whole evening. Kids ages 4 years through 5th grade are then invited to stay for age-specific small groups. These are highly interactive times of relationship building and age-appropriate Bible study. Throughout the year, there will also be opportunities to engage in activities with other generational age-groups. Meets weekly, September 20, 2017 – April 25, 2018, except for Nov. 22, Dec. 20 & 27, Feb. 14 and March 21.
