CHILDREN ARE A BLESSING!
Nurturing and growing God’s children through engaging learning and support is our priority. We are fortunate to have an extremely active and talented group of volunteers, from Sunday School teachers to small group leaders. The Children’s Ministry Team is dedicated to providing opportunities for our children to experience Christian education and fellowship.
Any questions or would you like to volunteer? Connect with our Director of Children’s Arts & Ministry: Marcela Meeks | email@example.com
During the Sunday School hour, children can participate in a rotation of (1) traditional Sunday School classes, (2) “Bible Challenge” where they memorize Bible verses, hymns and liturgy, and (3) “Energize,” an hour of fun crafts and games in the Fellowship Hall. In the summertime and during special holidays, Sunday School schedules may change.
During the 11:00 Service:
Children ages 4 – 2nd grade are invited to the altar for “Children’s Moments,” an age-appropriate lesson. They can return to sit with their parents or leave with a leader and enjoy creating in the “Worship & Wonder Room.”
Nursery is provided during the Sunday School hour and during the 11:00 am church service for ages 3 and under.
