Early Childhood- Sunday Mornings 9 am & 11:00 am

Our Early Childhood department is staffed by loving, trained volunteers who are eager to meet the needs of your child while you attend our adult services. In order to provide the most age-appropriate setting for children to grow and learn about Christ’s love, our program is divided by age and developmental stages: Nursery, 2-3’s, 3-5’s. Each class is designed to teach children from God’s Word, to grow them spiritually, and to help them mature into joyful, faithful servants of Christ. All volunteers are screened and fingerprinted, and are required to abide by our Childcare Protection Policy.

 

Nursery

Babies are cared for in our nursery, where trained volunteers demonstrate God’s love by promptly meeting their needs and showing them that Church is a fun, joyful place to be. Our nursery is carefully maintained for your child’s safety and health.

 

2-3’s

Our 2-3’s program is devoted to teaching children about Christ in a fun, interactive manner. Our mornings include a Bible-based puppet show and story time, worship time, snack time and free play.

 

3-5’s

Our team of dedicated volunteers guide children through a range of activities that include Bible stories, application lessons and small group discussions where children are encouraged to consider how the day’s lesson applies to their daily lives.

What is Awana?

Awana is our mid-week ministry committed to reaching children and youth with the Gospel and training them to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ.

Awana blends Bible teaching, Scripture memorization, and tons of fun. Our Awana ministry impacts kids ages 3 to 18, their families, and our entire community while helping our church instruct parents, train volunteers, and make our children’s ministry all that God intends it to be!

Today 12,000 U.S. churches run Awana with programs in all 50 states. Awana can also be found in over 5,100 churches in 109 other countries and six continents.

Why Awana?

Bible memory and sound doctrine build a Biblical worldview in the hearts and minds of our children. We use Awana to achieve this goal, since Awana provides a fun, dynamic approach to learning God’s Word. We are training future church leaders to serve today!
