Children & Youth



Christian education begins at birth. In order to provide the best care for our children, nursery ages are from six weeks old through pre-kindergarten. During the summer months, children who have not yet attended kindergarten are welcome to join as well. The nursery staff and volunteers are trained to nurture our children and help them grow in relationship with the Lord. Nursery care is available on Sundays from 10:45 a.m. through the end of the 11 a.m. worship service.

Time for Young Disciples

During the 11 a.m. worship service, all children are invited to the front of the sanctuary for a children's lesson. This is a special time for the children to actively participate in worship and learn about the essential lesson behind the service's message.


Following the Time for Young Disciples, children in kindergarten through second grade are dismissed from the sanctuary to make their way to a time of structured learning and fellowship upstairs in the Christian Education Building The curriculum is built around a scripture passage from the morning worship service and a memory verse is created. Children join their families following the worship service at the stage in Gordon Memorial Hall. Kids-4-God runs during the school year.
