Sunday School

Children and Youth

Nursery (ages birth to 5-years-old) – Our nursery staff and volunteers are so happy to see your children! We provide childcare (in the Nursery/Pre-K areas downstairs in the Education Wing) during all worship services and the Sunday School hour.  We do encourage children to participate in any and all events, including worship, when the parent feels it is appropriate.

Children (ages 3 through 5th grade) - There are Sunday School classes for all of our children on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. in the downstairs Education Wing.  Each class has age-appropriate curriculum and awesome teachers who can't wait to meet your child!

"Godly Play"(ages 3 through 2nd grade)- During the 9:00 and 11:00 worship hour, children ages 3 through second grade are invited to go with the leader after the Children’s Message to our downstairs Chapel (Room 109) and participate in “Godly Play.”  Based on the Montessori Method, “Godly Play” uses a careful telling of the scripture stories, engaging story figures, and a variety of creative activities to encourage children to seek and find their own answers to their faith questions.

Middle School, Room 203 - Join Leslie Goss and Kerri White at 10:00 a.m. in Youth Central to dig into some exciting Bible stories from a variety of sources, and discuss what they mean for today's Middle School students.

High School, Room 202 - Join Dr. Ken Reese at 10:00 a.m. in Youth Central for a study of the foundational truths of scripture and Christian theology from the book, "5 Minute Theologian," while engaging and participating in thoughtful and meaningful conversation with other High School students.
