During the 10:45am service
Church worship services, unlike personal quiet times of Bible study and prayer, is a communal experience. We welcome and desire for children to be part of the worship service. Many parents choose to have their younger children remain in the service in its entirety. We also offer children's church during the worship service for families who want that opportunity for their children. Our goal is to equip kids with the knowledge of the elements of our worship while also guiding them in a time of rich teaching that will speak to their hearts. It is an experience designed to prepare children to engage in lifelong participation in worship. All Children's Church lessons include worship through song, prayer, offering, and a bible story. We use Teach Me to Worship Curriculum which is very intentional in teaching the children about the elements of worship.
Ages 3-4: They have the option to be signed into a classroom at the beginning of the service. Then they will join children coming from the Sanctuary in a Children's Church lesson but will return to their classroom for pickup. Another option is to begin the worship service in the Sanctuary with thier family and then come to Children's Church at the designated point in the service.
Kindergarten through 1st grade: We offer a split service Children’s Church opportunity. Families will begin worship together in the Sanctuary and at a designated point in the service, the children will have the opportunity to line up to be escorted to the children’s wing to continue in worship. They will remain there until parents come to pick them up at the end of the service.
