Our goal is to provide a safe environment where children will experience the love of God through Jesus Christ and discover that they are a unique and very important part of God’s family.
Bible lessons, music and fun activities are geared to help children grow in their faith and also emphasize the importance of sharing that faith in the world by our actions and service to others.
The safety and security of our children is very important to us. All of our volunteers and staff have up to date criminal record and child abuse clearances and attend a required yearly training and review of our church safety policies.
Sunday Mornings for Kids
We will begin our return to in-person children's activities on September 12, 2021. The nursery and splash room will remain closed until more families return to in-person worship and express a need for child care during the worship services.
Sunday school teachers and helpers will all be wearing masks. We ask that children wear masks as well. Our Sunday school room is large enough to allow for children to spread out.
We will be offering the Pray Ground and Children's Sunday School in person. Details are below. We are all looking forward to interacting with the children in person again!
During the 8:45 & 11 am Sunday worship services
For Kindergarten – Grade 3
After the Message for Growing Christians, PRAYGROUND will be held at the front of the Sanctuary during the 8:45 service, and at the back of the Fiesta Center at the 11:00 service. Quiet activities will be available at a table so children who need a little something extra during worship can remain present and learn how to worship.
Sundays, 10 - 11 am between worship services
For age 2 - Grade 5
Children will learn a story and do some activities as a group. Other activities will be geared for different ages where children will be divided into smaller groups.
Virtual Sunday School will also continue in the same format as last year, with videos uploaded to the Celebrate Wonder playlist on YouTube. There will no longer be take-home activity packets this year. Some of the activity pages from in-person Sunday school will be emailed for those attending virtually.
