Children’s Ministry

We believe that Jesus loves all children and it is his desire for them to know and enjoy him. Every Sunday we provide a safe, fun, and structured environment for children ages 2 through grade 8. A clean and secure nursery is also available for parents to drop off their babies to be cared for by volunteers during the worship services.

We value your child’s safety: every volunteer is required to fill out a detailed application form, provide references, and undergo a background check.

WHAT TO EXPECT

If you are a first-time visitor, you will be required to fill out a Parent-Student Information form with basic contact information. Should we need to contact you during service, we may text your cell phone or find you in the service.

Parents/Guardians of children in Nursery (Birth to 24 months) and Toddlers (2–3 years old) are given a numbered ID tag upon drop-off. The child and his/her belongings are also tagged with the same tag number. At check-out, the numbered ID tag is checked against the child’s tag before the child is released.

For the older grades, attendance is taken to ensure that every child is accounted for. Teachers will remain in the classroom to ensure that every child is released to the right parent/guardian.

Young teens are self-dismissed.

CHILDREN’S CLASSES

We have two sessions of classes, 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM. To allow ample time for your child to go to his/her class, we suggest that you come 15 minutes before the service starts. Please see below for a list of locations.
