SUNDAYS 9:00am & 10:15am

Early Childhood Kidz

From the very beginning we come along side parents and work together to begin introducing them to a relationship with God. Infants - 24 months are cared for in a loving environment by trained volunteers who will incite the wonder of God to these youngest ones. Twos – Kindergarten kids enjoy creative storytelling, awesome worship and hands-on activities that reinforce the Bible in Early Childhood.

 

Elementary Kidz Grades 1-4

Through large group and small group environments, kids experience fun activities, worship, media and discussions that reinforce the Bible lesson. We believe kids learn best in a consistent, loving atmosphere where they can get to know others and be known by leaders and friends

 

DOGs (Disciples of God) Grades 5 & 6

Welcome to the DOG POUND! The DOG POUND is the meeting place for 5th and 6th graders. The Bible lessons are designed to engage preteens and to make sense in their everyday lives. Various fun activities and opportunities to serve their community and church are planned throughout the year. Come join the fun!
