We have a small group system for the children to nurture relationships and insure visitors will be welcomed and cared for.Please check in at the “Info Table” on the right as you face the Sanctuary entrance for specifics on where your child will be worshipping at the different services (since each one has unique configurations and locations). For more specifics, contact Tricia Popp or Donna Sugano during the week.
We have age-appropriate activities for the children from birth to fourth grade at the 8:45 am, 11 am, and 4 pm services and birth to fourth grade at all three services (children enter the youth ministry which meets only at the 11 in fifth grade):
- We have a nursery and toddler room (first building on the right as you enter the campus) staffed by people from the body who rotate leadership on a monthly basis. They are assisted by homegroup helpers assigned from the larger body to serve a few times a year (see below).
- PreK/K children can be checked into their activities 15 minutes before each service downstairs in the Christian Education building to the right as you exit the sanctuary. They have playtime, worship, stories, and snacks under supervision of loving small group leaders we call “Friends”.
- First through Fourth Grade children at the 9:00 & 11:00 am services can attend the adult worship service each week before being dismissed for age-appropriate activities. This is structured into small groups led by adults we call “Friends” so that the children get the individual attention they need.
- The 4pm service has a few unique features: the elementary children are grouped K-4th in a smaller group than the morning services. The children start worship in the sanctuary each week before being dismissed for age-appropriate activities and they also return to the sanctuary after their age group activities for the closing worship.
- There are several Sundays during the year in which elementary children are included in the adult worship in the sanctuary. These are intentionally scheduled as part of our whole church’s need to grow to worship intergenerationally.
