Weekly Programming for Children and Families
 
Children’s Church
Children’s Church is offered at both the 9am and 11am worship services. This is a time for children ages pre-k through 2nd grade to learn age-appropriate lessons related to the morning’s scripture as well foundations about faith. Children’s Church will not take place on Communion Sundays, typically the first Sunday of every month.
 
Children must be registered each Sunday for Children’s Church prior to the Children’s Message. Registration is in the Narthex and Children’s Church will take place upstairs in the Christian Education Building. 
 
On Sunday mornings, Liturgy Boxes, Children’s Messages, and Children’s Bulletins will also be available and take place during both the 9am and 11am services.
 
Nursery care is also available during each service on Sunday mornings.
 
Submerge
Submerge is a special small group for 3-5th grade children offered Sunday evenings from 5-6om upstairs in the Christian Education Building. This class focuses on helping this unique age group dive deeper into their faith as well as help prepare them for their future in student ministry. 
 
Parent’s Small Group
This group is meant for parents to connect with God and with one another. This class will meet on Sundays from 5-6pm downstairs in the Christian Education Building to coincide with SURGE and Submerge.
