Nursery

 

Nursery for infants and young toddlers is provided during both the 9:30 hour and the Worship Service, as well as during the Sunday evening service. The nursery is located adjacent to the Worship Center, on the Main Level of the building.

Children’s Workers and Materials

 

Darcie Helm leads our children’s ministries and ensures that all nursery workers and children’s teachers have background checks, and many have recently completed First Aid training. 

 

We keep our children’s classes small enough for teachers to truly get to know each child individual, and they take a genuine interest in each child’s spiritual growth. In an effort to help children grow in both grace and knowledge, we use a variety of materials, most of which are from the following publishers:

 

Sunday Morning Children’s Classes

 

Classes for the following age groups are currently being offered on Sunday mornings, on the Lower Level of our facility, starting at 9:30:

 

  • Toddlers to K-5
  • 1st-3rd Grade
  • 4th-6th Grade
  • 7th-9th Grade

 

We enthusiastically welcome older teens to participate in our various Men’s [insert/embed link to “Ministries—Men” page] and Women’s [insert/embed link to “Ministries—Women” page] classes during that time.

Sunday Morning Worship Service

 

Children in K-5 and under are welcome to remain in the same classroom for the worship service, when they will be led in a children’s church service. Parents should plan to pick up their children after the service comes to a close. (Of course, if parents prefer to keep their children in the main Worship Service, they are welcome to do so.)

 

Children in grades 1-3 are invited to join us in the Worship Center, which is on the Main Level of our building, as we begin the main Worship Service; they will be dismissed before the sermon to attend a children’s church service suited to their age; children’s church leaders for this age rotate, usually on a monthly basis, and are selected by Pastor Brian Helm.

Sunday Evening Service

 

On Sunday evenings, children are welcome to join the rest of the congregation in the Worship Center.

Wednesday Evening Classes

 

On Wednesday evenings, we offer classes for the following age groups:

 

  • Toddlers to K-5
  • 1st-3rd Grade
  • 4th-6th Grade

 

During the summer months, the teachers take a hiatus while we combine all the children to learn Bible doctrine from the well-made video series entitled “What’s in the Bible?

 

Those in middle school and high school are included in Gardiner Hall along with adults for a time of Bible study and prayer.

Additional Activities

 

In addition to our weekly classes for children, we have several events for all members of the family [insert/embed link to “Ministries–Families” page] as well as a few designed especially with children in mind. Annual children’s events include a community-wide VBS in June or July as well as a Fall Festival on October 31. Be sure to check our current calendar for upcoming events!
