Nursery (birth - two years)
Our nursery is located on our main level - down the hall from the sanctuary. Here kids will be able to play with other kids their age. In this room, there is some minor structured activity as the kids are still developing into who God has made them to be. You may drop your child(ren) off when you enter the building and when corporate gathered worship has ended, you may head back the nursery to sign your child(ren) out.
Explorers (age 3 years - kindergarten) and Adventurers (1st and 2nd graders)
Because we value having kids in the corporate worship service, kids in these age groups will be called to the front midway through the service for a prayer and released to their classrooms upstairs. They will have a kid-appropriate Bible lesson and activities during the sermon and will return to their parents at the end of the worship service.
We are currently using the curriculum from Treasuring Christ to serve and teach our kids. This curriculum has helped resource our teachers to be more creative and to share the Gospel story all the more clearer for our kids!
Special Note from the Elders
The Elders would strongly encourage you to make every effort to include your child(ren) for the entire time of corporate worship. If worship is truly the most valuable thing a human can do, and if we believe that the chief means by which God pours out grace upon His people is through the ministry of the Word, the administration of the sacraments, and prayer, can you then imagine the cumulative effect of 936 worship services spent with their parent(s) (birth - 18 years old). You cannot begin to calculate its value!
