Children’s Worship

Children’s Worship is offered during our 8:30 and 10:30 worship services.

At 8:30 service the children attend adult worship and are dismissed during the offering to be escorted to the KidsZone for children’s worship.  During our 10:30 service, we offer a full hour children’s worship service in the KidsZone.

Sunday school


For children ages 3 ½ through 3rd grade we offer a large group/small group format using, “The Jesus Storybook Bible” curriculum.  These lessons teach children that Jesus is the center of God’s great story of salvation.  This age group begins in the KidsZone for large group and then transitions to their classrooms for small group time.  Our 4th and 5th grade students meet in Room 12 and study a wide range of topics using videos and hands-on projects.


wednesday nights



Children begin in age appropriate choirs at 6:15 then transition to KidMission.  We are currently doing a study through the Bible.  Our night includes large group Bible lessons, small group time and games.  We also participate in a monthly mission project.



Our Vacation Bible School is normally held during the 3rd week of July.  Watch for announcements for the dates and themes.
