We are committed to the spiritual formation of every child who walks through the doors of our church. To that end, we have planned a Sunday morning experience called “Sunday Kids Camp” for kids that mirrors the worship service in the sanctuary, with pastor led teachings frequently based on the same scripture, a kids time of corporate worship, and small group discussions led by adult volunteers.

We also care deeply about the safety of every child in our church. A child protection consent form, outlining our safety policies, is required for every child participating in our children’s programs (one per family).  Your first Sunday you will want to plan a few extra minutes to allow time for your children to be checked in. Or, to expedite check in, please fill out the online form below before Sunday.

Weekly/Monthly Gatherings

Sunday Kids Camp |  PreK - 4th grade

Sundays, 10:30am

Lent at Sunday Kids Camp

As our study of Explore God ended in February, children were invited to begin walking with Jesus. This series continues as we enter Lent this month by teaching children about what it looks like to walk with Jesus. Each week as we journey towards the triumph of Easter Sunday, we will explore a story from Jesus’ ministry in the Gospel of Luke and consider how we may follow him in the story. We invite you to read along in with us at home by reading the book of Luke as a family this Lenten season.

Two-three year olds are invited for a bible lesson, singing and some play time! The Little Lambs program is specifically designed for children two to three years of age. There are three areas of teaching focus: Bible stories, Bible verses and hymns. We hope to introduce young children to the Bible and help them know the love of God.

For those too young for Little Lambs, there will be music and a Bible story. Nursery care is available for children, infants through five years of age, during both worship services. The nursery is located in the lower level, at the bottom of the south stairwell.

Club 56 classes are for 5th and 6th graders to “dig deeper” into scripture and explore biblical topics to grow their faith. Sunday mornings, Club 56 students start in the 10:30 worship service in the sanctuary and then gather to meet for classes in the youth loft. Join Club 56 on the first and third Wednesday of each month 7-8:30pm for a night of games, worship and outreach. Invite your friends!

Communion with kids | All ages

One Sunday each Quarter

We practice open communion and believe any follower of Jesus is welcome to the table of our Lord. Children who have made a declaration of faith in Jesus are invited to participate, though we encourage parents and guardians to decide when their children are ready. Children who will not receive the bread and cup are invited to cross their arms over their chests to receive a blessing.  

The cup is grape juice. Communion wafers ingredients: rice, maze, potato starch, olive oil, and water. When bread is used for communion, the bread is peanut/treenut/egg/dairy free. A gluten free station will be available.
