Sunday Worship and Childcare

Sunday Worship takes place at 9:00 am and 11:30 am each week. At 9:00 am worship, we begin with everyone in the Sanctuary together. Following the Children’s Moment, children are invited to remain with their families or to join us for a Children’s Worship service designed to engage children ages 4 through 2nd grade. We meet in the Choir Room across the hall from the Sanctuary, and each week the children follow an order of worship similar to what the congregation follows. During the last worship song, our leaders bring the children back to the Sanctuary where they rejoin their families.

During our 9:00 am worship service, we also have childcare for infants through age 2 in the Crib Room, and childcare for ages 2-4 in the Blue Room. Children should be checked in by a parent or guardian. We have one staff worker with our younger children in the Crib Room & Blue Room every Sunday, to provide continuity. We ask that parents who use these rooms sign up to volunteer once per season. Parents may bring their babies at any age. Both rooms offer a pager system, so that parents can be reached during the service if necessary. Toddlers advance to the Blue Room anytime after they turn 2.

During our 11:30 am service, families are invited to worship together. Childcare is available for children ages 4 and younger in the Crib Room, located in our main building.

Childcare during 9am worship, Sunday School, and 11:30am worship for infants through 4 years old.

Sunday School Classes

Sunday School Classes meet beginning September 17. Classes, held 10:30-11:20 am, are designed to give children a foundation in Biblical knowledge and Scripture memorization that families can then build upon at home throughout the week. In accordance with our church protection policy,  volunteers are screened. Children “graduate” to the next class level in September, concurring with school cut-off. Registration is required for Sunday School participation and can be completed here (a new window will open).
