Weekly/Monthly Gatherings

Nursery | 0-4 yrs.

Sundays, 9 & 10:30a

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.

Little Lambs | 2-3 yrs.

Sundays, 10:30a

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.

Sunday Kids Camp |  PreK - 4th grade

Sundays, 10:30a

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 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. Beginning this Sunday, a child protection consent form, outlining our safety policies, is required for every child participating in our children’s programs (one per family).  You will want to plan a few extra minutes on Sunday mornings to allow time for your children to be checked in. Or, to expedite check in, please fill out the online form below before Sunday.

Club 56 | 5th & 6th grade

Sun. 10:30a + 1st & 3rd Wed., 7-8:30p

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.
