Learn About Our Weekend Programming

Weekend Programming

Infants and Toddlers
Service Hours: Sunday 9:00/10:30 a.m. (ages 0 - 2 years by September 1, 2019) We provide a caring environment with trained and background checked volunteers in our nurseries. Every activity, whether feeding, rocking or playing is done with the goal of making your child feel safe and loved. Our 2 year old toddlers also hear a short Bible story, sing familiar songs and do a simple craft related to the story.

We have a Mother’s Nursing Room located on the main floor across from the water fountain. The service is televised in this comfortable room where moms can privately care for their baby.
Preschool
Service Hours: Sunday 9:00/10:30 a.m. (3-year-olds - PreK by September 1, 2019)
Our preschool classrooms allow children to play and create as well as learn from God’s word. Instruction is given in a combination of large and small group settings with qualified teachers and leaders. Children in large group will hear a Bible story, sing age-appropriate worship songs, and pray together. Our children also spend time connecting with others while playing, making crafts and other small group activities.
Elementary
Service Hours: Sunday 9:00/10:30 a.m. (Kindergarten-5th grade)
We know these years provide an opportunity to help children gain a solid foundation for their direction in life. We believe that God has created each of them uniquely with specific abilities and personalities. We also believe our elementary students can have an active and living faith. Our focus is on helping them commit all of their lives (spirit, soul and body) to the Lord. An emphasis is placed on children building relationships with teenagers and adults that will facilitate spiritual growth. Worship, group games, storytelling videos, small group discussions and dynamic Bible storytelling are some of the elements included.

Children With Special Needs
Every child matters to God. Children with special needs will have the opportunity to experience God through intentional relationship (Buddies) and creative programming. We will partner with parents to help make the most of the time their child spends with us. Please contact us for more details or with any questions you may have.
