Childcare

A baby's birth is the beginning of a child's faith journey.  We offer a safe and loving place for newborns through 3 years of age duringthe entirety of the worship service. The Childcare room is located in room 1 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 develope new relationships.

For the safety and security of all children participating in 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 sign in and initialed out of our care by a parent.

Faith Circuit - Children in Prekindergarten through Grade 5

The children in grades Pre-Kindergarten through grade 5 participate in our workshop rotation model Sunday School.  The children spend five or six weeks on one Bible story and rotate to a different workshop each week to learn the lesson in a new way.  They attend workshops such as, art, computers, cooking, drama, science, storytelling, etc.  By the end of each unit, the children should have a clear understanding of the Bible story.  Each workshop has a leader who teaches the story and a teen assistant.  In addition, each roup has a grade level shepherd who stays with the same group of children from week to week, getting to know them and building a relationship with them.

Faith Circuit - Children in Middle School,
 Grades 6 & 7


Middle School children are invited to share in a study of the Bible.  Using the age/grade appropriate curriculum, I Know My Bible, the students learn about God and Jesus through stories in the Old and New Testament.  They learn about the history of the time and discuss their ideas and feelings about the story as well as how it relates to their lives today.  The concept that drives this curriculum is a personal relationship with God and Jesus.  The purpose of this study is to help youth gain the knowledge and assurance to say, "I know my Bible!"
