Where Do Kids Go?

We offer safe, nurturing environments for your kids from nursery through high school. During our Sunday worship services, they will be well cared for and learn about Jesus with their peers.


Volunteers
Our awesome teachers and staff love Jesus and they love kids. They complete training and background checks, and adhere to policies to protect your children.

Curriculum
In Preschool through High School classes, we feature The Gospel Project, a Christ-centered, chronological Bible study for all ages. Students journey from the beginning of the Bible to the end, discovering how God’s plan of salvation unfolds throughout history and still today.

TGP goes far beyond the classroom. Each Sunday, we send kids home with resources for families to use during the week to grow together in all that they're learning. Each group studies age-appropriate lessons on the same topics, so families can learn together. 

Adults can track along with your kids' lessons using the Family Bible Reading Plan for the whole family.

Look for the The Gospel Project app in your favorite app store.

Check-In/Checkout Procedure
All children in Nursery, PreSchool, Children’s Sunday School, and Children’s Church are required to be checked in and out by a parent or designated adult. Fill out a short registration form your first time attending. If we need to reach you while your child is in our care, your cell phone will be your pager.

A Few Other Things:
  • Snacks. We’ve got it covered. Let us know if there are food allergies to be aware of.
  • Bathroom/Diapering. Nursery is the only environment where we will tend to diapering needs; youngsters in other classes should be able to use the bathroom on their own. If the need happens to arise, we will page you to tend to your child. (Thanks for dressing your kids in clothing they can manage on their own.)
  • Illness. We kindly ask you to keep your child at home if he or she is sick or has a fever.

We hope you’ll take advantage of the teaching and care we offer your kids.

We are honored to care for your children, but we understand that some parents prefer their children to stay with them in the worship service. Know that your children are always welcome to stay in the sanctuary with you at any time.
