SUNDAY MORNING CHILDREN'S MINISTRY PROGRAMMING

Birth - PreK will have dynamic age-appropriate programming throughout the morning. Birth - 3yrs begins at 8:30am, while PreK and older children will join their families for worship in the Worship Center. Full programming Birth - PreK will be available during the 9:45am Connect Time and 11:00am Worship Time in the downstairs portion of the Community Center.  Children are split into age-appropriate groups where they have worship, an interactive Bible story time, along with a variety of small group activities that all tie back to their main Bible story for the week.  Birth-PreK will check-in downstairs at our Welcome Desk on the west side of the Community Center.   

Kindergarten through 4th grade starts with Connect Time at 9:45am with fun, engaging Bible study and activities in an age-appropriate format.  Children then stick around for a vibrant Children’s Worship Service at 11:00am. Children will start in small group classes then move into Worship time in Second Stage.  Kindergarten - 6th grade will check-in upstairs at our Welcome Desk located on the East side of the second floor of the Community Center.  


Fifth through Sixth grade have age-appropriate programming during the 9:45am Connect Time where they dive into God’s word together as well as participate in activities that tie them back to the solid foundation of Christ.  At 11:00am, this group engages in a casual small group atmosphere with their own worship opportunity. Through discussion and team-building activities, they will build community with each other and God. There are also several service opportunities on a Sunday morning where 5th and 6th graders can plug in using their God-given gifts.
