Weekly Ministry Schedule

 

Early Childhood (Nursery/Preschool)

Sunday 

9 & 11:15am - Ministry in Worship

Worship for nursery and pre-schoolers begins with their parents and friends leading small groups. Nursery classes, for children 24 months and younger, are divided by developmental stages and the children enjoy age appropriate curriculum and Cradle Choir time. For pre-schoolers, ages 2 through Kindergarten, a variety of curriculum is used that addresses a holistic learning approach engaging the five senses. Children experience a Bible lesson enhanced with music and movement, games, snacks, scripture memorization, and crafts. Pre-school children move through the morning beginning and ending in small age-level groups, while sandwiched in between is a large group lesson and memory verse reinforcement, music, and prayer led by our Early Childhood Pastor and worship team.

Pre-schoolers also have the opportunity to worship through handbell choir. The Krystal Bell method is used for this ministry. Children are given the opportunity to share their music in adult worship on a regular basis.

10:15am - Ministry in Age-Level Groups

Sunday School follows worship and is an hour of relationship building to God and his Word by dedicated and loving teachers. We are blessed to have a group of people who commit to teaching each week and love our precious little ones through the most formative years.

Children Birth through 5th grade enjoy a small-group fellowship experience with their families. Locations and times vary.

Sunday
8:30am – Ministry in Pancakes & Praise

Each Sunday morning, children enjoy a free and delicious hot pancake breakfast, as they SHARE in life with their old and new friends, while listening to some encouraging worship music.  The children really enjoy this time together, and it gives parents an opportunity to make it to the Celebration Service early enough to visit as well.

9 & 11:15am - Ministry in Worship

Dynamic and highly interactive worship happens as we begin with music lead by our worship band. This is followed by extremely engaging lessons, taught through various methods and dramatic elements. Our commitment is to teaching God’s truths to kids, through relevant Bible teaching, group discussion, and age-appropriate activities. As children learn God’s truths, we discuss and role-play their application in our modern-day lives.

Participating in small, age-level groups provides a wonderful learning environment for the children to engage in directive study of the Bible, Memorization of the Scriptures, Church History, Doctrine of our Faith, and Applicable Life Skills for Christian Living. Each classroom is led by four ministry volunteers who love your children and enjoy teaching them these truths of God. They provide an excellent environment for a thriving community of young Believers to bond and learn together.
