Psalm 127:3

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.

Sunday Classes

 

Nursery (ages 1 to 2) 

10:30am – drop off prior to service (see an usher or new visitor’s table for information)

Nursery is available for parents with young children during service. We have two classes—N1 for one year olds and N2 for two year olds. Due to class size limitations and safety policies, children must be 1 years old on or before Dec. 31 to enter N1. Eligibility re-opens on promotion day, which is the first Sunday of July.

Junior Praise Club (Preschool-Pre-K)

10:30am – drop off prior to service (see an usher or new visitor’s table for information)

For children in preschool and pre-K (typically ages 3-4), we hold a special praise, craft, and Bible curriculum time called Junior Praise Club. This curriculum and structure prepares the youngsters for Sunday worship and Children’s Church. Drop-off and pickup for JPC is in Basement 2.

Children’s Church (K – 5th grade)

10:30am – in service

Children worship alongside adults Sunday mornings and are dismissed prior to the sermon to attend Children’s Church in the Fellowship Hall—usually at 11am. Children’s Church is a kids oriented service geared to continue worship in song, praise, and teaching in the Word. Generations of Grace curriculum is used in a group setting with later break out sessions for crafts and inductive Bible study.
