Children's Church is currently being offered during the sermon portion of the worship service for children three years old through third grade. While socially distancing and wearing masks, children hear an age appropriate message which follows the same passage from which Pastor Billy is preaching.

We believe in the importance of all our kids worshipping with their parents and other adults, building relationships with older generations, and identifying themselves as part of the larger church community. Therefore we have resisted the frequent practice of children joining a separate group as soon as they enter on Sunday morning. We want them to learn they “belong”.

 

 

 

 

However, we recognize our younger children will be limited in their comprehension during the pastor’s message. Accordingly parents have the option of dismissing their children to Children’s Church, where they hear an age appropriate lesson. One of the goals of Children’s Church is to give families the opportunity to discuss the Scriptures together.

 

 

 

During normal, non-COVID times, children are dismissed into three groups: Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4, Kindergarten and 1st Grade, and 2nd and 3rd Grade. The Pre-K class hears a simple summary of their Sunday School lesson and completes an activity and coloring sheet. They are also working on memory verses. The older children discuss the sermon passage in kid-friendly terms, complete activities, and memorize verses.
