Nursery: Infants to 18 months old
The Nursery Room is meant to accommodate newborn infants up to new walkers. Right around the age they start walking is when we work with parents to discuss a transition into the next level. In the Nursery Room, children will be loved and cared for. It will be the beginning of understanding God’s love and what it is like to belong to a community of believers.
Toddler Classroom: 18 months to 3 years old
The Toddler Room is meant to accommodate children who are all ready up and about. This room has more of an organized day with a routine so children can learn. The children will begin to understand God’s Word through activities, stories, and worship in song.
Preschool Classroom: 4 to 7 years old
In the Preschool Room, children will have more of a schedule with designated times for different activities. The activities in this room are a little more complex, the understanding of God’s Word grows, and the love for God goes deeper.
Elementary Classroom: 7 to 11 years old
The Elementary Classroom is designated for second grade through Fifth Grade. This ministry gives age appropriate teaching of God’s Word through studies, activities, and worship. This class will prepare the children for a smooth transition into the Youth Ministry.

What will my child do during his time in the Children’s Ministry?
Each class provides Bible-based and age-appropriate worship, bible story, crafts and care for your children. Our children will learn, sing, and have fun in a safe and secure environment, while parents are in the Main Sanctuary.
Can I stay with my child?
Yes! Parents may stay with their children, especially if the child is having difficulty adjusting to their new environment. We are always happy to work with parents to meet the needs of each individual child.
How are children dismissed from class?
We are using a children’s check in system called Kid Check. For the children’s safety, all children must remain in their classroom until a registered parent/adult in our kid check system checks them out.
Can I help?
If you would like to be involved in this ministry, use the contact form below. You may also pick up an application at the Church Office. As soon as you complete it, we’ll get the process going.
