The Children’s Ministry focuses on children preschool through 5th grade. Children are invited to join their families for the first part of Sunday worship. After the Word for Young Disciples, the children’s special lesson during worship, they are escorted to their upstairs classroom.

Sunday school classes are offered as follows:

  • Lambs (3 years old through Preschool),
  • Stars (Kindergarten through 2nd grade), and
  • Explorers (3rd through 5th grades).

Each month we have an overall theme, one Bible verse and one “Anchor Point”.

The Annual Christmas Musical was presented by the children during Sunday morning worship on December 11, 2016. This year’s presentation was “Guess Who’s Coming to Bethlehem?“, based on the book The Friendly Beasts.
All children ages 3 years through Grade 6 are invited to participate in retelling the Christmas story! Every Sunday starting in November, during the last 15 minutes of Sunday school, and Monday afternoons during SHINE rehearsal, children will learn songs for their Christmas musical. A full rehearsal is held on the Saturday prior to the presentation, 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 noon.
