At this age, it's all about play! Babies are comforted and fed. Toys and games encourage children to practice their budding motor and social skills. Our nursery workers are available throughout the service. When you check your child in, you will receive a wristband with your child's number. For security purposes, whichever adult picks up the child must return this bracelet. You may drop off any drinks and peanut-free snacks you wish your child to have during the service. Please remember to label all items with your child's name.
Children sit with their families for singing and worship. After children are dismissed from the service, they gather all together for Grace Kids Time. This time includes kids' songs and a demonstration of the weekly Bible lesson which is designed to be appropriate for even the youngest attenders. Kid volunteers are invited up to help act out the story with costumes and props. Each week's lesson connects to one of the Fruits of the Spirit as children learn to apply the Bible's values in their everyday lives. Children then attend one of three classes that help them further understand the lesson, with activities and content that are geared to each age group:
-The Lighthouse: 2-4 years old
-Kingdom Seekers: Kindergarten-2nd Grade
-Raiders of the Good Book: 3rd-5th Grade
Preschoolers learn to be lights to the world through short, fun activities based on the weekly story and Fruit of the Spirit. This is followed by free-play time, which helps them to adjust from a nursery to a Sunday school class setting.
Lighthouse parents are asked to accompany their children downstairs at dismissal time to check them in and receive a wristband with the child's number. For security purposes, whichever adult picks up the child must return this bracelet. If you would like your child to be fed during play time, you may drop off any drinks and peanut-free snacks in labeled containers.
Younger children learn to seek the Kingdom of Heaven through Bible stories, songs, crafts and games. Our focus is for children to understand how the many stories of the Bible all connect to the one great story of God's love for the world, and how that story is all about one person: Jesus.
Each week, older children go on an archaeological dig through the Old and New Testaments. Children study Bible stories in greater depth through scripture readings, games and activities. Children learn how the Bible is connected to the story of the world and how God wants to be a part of their own life story.
A free, weekly drop-in group for 0-4 year-olds and their moms, dads, grannies or nannies. Join us for songs, nursery rhymes, stories and play time. Everyone is welcome!
Parent Small Group:
We believe raising children to know and share God's love with others extends beyond the home. Parents meet to encourage one another through a monthly Bible study that applies the current sermon series to our roles as parents. This group meets one Saturday a month at 5pm. Childcare is provided.
Each first Sunday of the month there is a special family activity for parents and kids. These activities include volunteering, picnics and special holiday events.
