We are dedicated to providing a warm and inviting Christian experience for children of all ages. Care for infants and toddlers is available from 9:30 am to 11:30 am in our professionally-staffed nursery.

Sunday School classes, offered for children from preschool-age through 8th grade, meet at 9:00 am in the Chapel. Students gather together for songs and prayer before being dismissed to individual classes. Children are assigned to class by age, providing age-appropriate lessons meaningful to their life experience. From 10:00 am to 10:15 am children attend the first portion of the Sunday worship service with their families. After the Children’s Message, they meet in Fellowship Hall for Children’s Chapel, a worship service designed for children.

Our Director of Christian Education oversees the Sunday School curriculum, teaches classes for children and youth, and conducts special events.

confirmStudents in 7th and 8th grade are invited to participate in Confirmation Classes. The goal of these classes is to enable young people to grow and mature in Christian faith. Classes meet weekly for one year on Sunday evenings. Students also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of learning experiences, which include field trips, retreats, and mission events. At the end of this journey, students will be invited to make the decision to profess their faith in Jesus Christ, claim the name of “Christian,” and join in church membership.
