Sunday School
Sunday morning finds our halls simply alive with excitement. Classes are filled with children in a purposefully chosen curriculum that helps fulfill our vision to restore lives, families, and community by helping them connect with Jesus Christ. Our curriculum reaches from the youngest child, in our nursery, to the oldest in the department, the fifth grader. An understanding of discipleship begins with the foundation of God’s Word and an understanding of His love for each one of us.  All children's Sunday School classes, ages 2 through 5th grade will be using The Gospel Project®. This is a Christ-centered curriculum that helps kids understand that all Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation, points to Jesus Christ. After a year of using this curriculum, teachers are thoroughly enjoying diving into God's Word with this tool.  Families can download The Gospel Project® app to experience more fun and growth throughout the week. An additional resource is the weekly blog. There is an adult Gospel Project class available in Room 85.

Time With The Pastor

“Children’s Time with the Pastor” offered the 3rd Sunday of each month in the Traditions worship service –  During worship all children (5th grade and below) are invited down for a “time with the pastor.”  At the conclusion of this time, children ages Kindergarten and below, who wish to attend Preschool Worship, will be escorted to the room location by a member of the Children’s Ministry team.  Elementary children will return to their seat with their parents.

Nursery

The nursery is available for children ages birth through 2 years old. Please bring a bag for your child that contains diapers, bottles or other items your child needs. PLEASE LABEL ALL ITEMS with your child’s name. You will be given a pager when you check in your child. Should we need you, your pager will vibrate to notify you to come to the nursery. Our ministry team and facility is sufficiently equipped in order that your child is in a safe environment and that he/she is cared for while away from his/her parents. Our goal is to ensure parents the peace of mind to attend worship while their children are being cared for and being nurtured in spiritual development.
