Children age 3-6 are dismissed during Sunday worship for an age-appropriate time of worship, learning, and activities. Children's Worship meets all year long, except for holiday weekends. Children should check in at one of the computers in the narthex. 


10:45-11:30 am

Sunday School is a time for digging into scripture with teachers who are passionate about helping kids grow in their faith. The 2-3 year olds will go directly to their classroom at the start of Sunday School, and kids in PreK-4th grade will start their time with a lively time of worship in the Children's Ministry Chapel before heading to their classrooms. Sunday School will dismiss at 11:30 am.

If your child would like to get involved in Sunday school or Wednesday night programs, stop by the registration desk in the Children's Ministry Center (upstairs) 10 minutes before the start of the program. Children who are visiting Children's Worship should meet the a leader in the narthex at dismissal for check in and pick up instructions.
