Your children’s safety is important to us. All our volunteers have been interviewed by our staff and have submitted state and national background checks. All children are required to be checked in and out of their program rooms while children in 2nd grade and under will be assigned an alphanumeric tag that parents will present at pick-up. We have a strict written safety policy which can be found here Download.
Children’s Sermon – Sundays during the 9:00am Worship Service (except during Covid-19)
Children ages 4 through second grade are dismissed after the hymn before the sermon and gather in the lobby to attend the children’s sermon. Our dedicated volunteers then lead them in a time of singing, bible study, and hands on activities that reinforce the lesson. We currently use a curriculum called Dwell that “invites kids to find their place in God’s story living into and out of it for the rest of their lives.” After the Children’s Sermon kids are either brought straight to their Sunday School classes or picked-up directly from their parents.
Sunday School – Sundays at 10:15am on Zoom
Sunday school provides a weekly time where kids feel cared for by their teachers and peers, where they can engage in the scriptures, and feel free to ask questions. Classes will run throughout the school year and are curently held through zoom. This year we are using The Gospel Projects curriculum which points kids to Jesus throughout the whole scripture. Email Heather Hills for the link if you would like to join us. Check out what the Gospel Project is all about Here.
Boys & Girls Clubs
Rocks is a club for boys in Grades 1- 5, designed to help boys grow in their knowledge of God through learning the catechisms together. Boys in grades 1 and 2 will be lead through the Kids Quest curriculum learning the First Catechism while boys in grades 3 – 5 will use the New City Catechism. In addition to opening God’s word together, the boys let their competitive spirit fly during recreation. In the spring they spend time building their own cars to participate in the famous pinewood derby. Rocks is meeting in-person this year with various adjustments made in order to follow the safely guidelines during COVID19.
Gems is a club for girls in Grades 1-5, designed to create a fun, safe place to learn about their savior Jesus Christ. We do this by teaching them Catechism questions from both the New City Catechism and the First Catechism. At Gems the girls gather together for singing after which they separate by grade for Bible lessons, crafts and games. It’s a great place for girls to make friends, have a great time and implant the truth of God’s word into their hearts. Gems is meeitng in-person this year with various adjustments made in order to follow the COVID19 safety guidelines.
