Children’s Education


We have a professionally staffed nursery available for infants and toddlers each Sunday from 9:15-12:15.

Children’s Church School

Ages 3 through Grade 5 9:30 to 10:45 AM Our children’s ministry is led by a dynamic team of adults. We use a variety of curriculum for our preschool and elementary classes that focus on teaching the stories of scripture through art, drama, music, games, and stories. There are two children’s choirs that meet the last 30 minutes of class each Sunday for Kindergarten – 5th Grade. The choirs sing in worship throughout the year.


Youth Church School

Grades 6 through 12 9:30 to 10:30 AM Middle School and High School Church School Classes focus on scripture as it relates to their lives at school and at home as a way to integrate the faith they are taught into a way of living.


Youth Fellowship

Grades 6 through 12 5:00-7:00 PM Make real, face-to-face connections with friends your age. We typically begin with some fun games, followed by a meal provided by parents. After dinner together we split into two age-specific groups for activities that develop a creative, spiritual space for exciting programs of fellowship, worship, study, and service. Contact Associate Pastor Shelby at for more information


Children in Worship

We encourage parents to introduce their children to the experience of worship at the 11:00 AM service following Sunday School. Ask an usher for a worship sheet and clipboard. The worship sheets contain activities based on the scripture lessons for that day.
