Children & Family Ministries

We love having children participate in our services! If you like, the ushers have activity bags with children’s bulletins and crayons for their enjoyment.

However, if you prefer, childcare for infants through second grade is available in the Activity Room (Room 206 on the second floor of the historic sanctuary building) and the MICAH childcare room on the first floor.  Greeters will be available and happy to direct you and your family.

Friendly, safe, loving care if provided by our on-staff Childcare Team and trained volunteers and is available from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every Sunday.

We’re hiring a new Director of Family Ministries! For more information, click here.

Children’s Class Schedule

Ages nursery – 5th Grade

9:50-10:20 a.m. – Rejoice! Kids’ Choir

10:20-11 a.m. – Sunday School, Education Building

Every Sunday, children in preschool through fifth grade will gather together in the 3rd floor choir room for a time of music and singing with Rejoice! Kids’ Choir.

After choir, children will be led to their Sunday school classrooms on the second floor of the Education Building. Using Spark curriculum, children will experience Bible stories through games, cooking, drama, art and science. This fall, they will learn about baby Moses, hear how Solomon built the Temple, and then finish the term with the Advent Story.

Activity Time and the Nursery are always in need of snacks for Sunday childcare. Please drop your donations of cheese sticks, crackers, etc. by the church office!
