A baby’s birth is the beginning of a child’s faith journey. We offer a safe and loving place for newborns through four years of age (pre-kindergarten) during the entirety of the worship service. The Childcare room is located in Room One on the lower level. Childcare begins at 9:20 am and ends at 10:40 am. Our Childcare is staffed by two regular Childcare staff members in addition to volunteers as needed.
During their time in Childcare, the children play, learn Bible based songs, hear Bible based stories, and develop new relationships.
For the safety and security of all children participating in our Children’s Ministries programs, a registration form is required for each child.
If you are a visitor or new to our Childcare program, please complete a registration form the first time you leave your child in our care.
We require that each child be signed-in by a parent, that the parent leave a cell phone number, and each child be initialed out of our care by a parent.
Disciple Zone – Children in Pre-kindergarten through Grade 5
The children in grades Pre-Kindergarten through grade Five are continuing with Whirl this fall in Disciple Zone, our 45 minute Sunday morning gathering. During that time our children grow together in faith and fellowship. Whirl is a lectionary based curriculum that engages the children in games, video, discussions and more. Our Children’s Ministry Team hopes program will allow our children to go deeper in thought about God and the Bible, as well as in fellowship with one another.
Seekers – Youth in Grades 6 & 7
This year our 6th and 7th grade youth continue working through Re:Form, an engaging curriculum that allows our youth to think deeper about God, the Bible and join in fellowship with their fellow youth. The Seekers meet in the Parlor.
