Sundays at 9:00 am, preschool through 5th grade students are invited to KiDS (Kids in Discipleship Studies). Led by adult volunteers and staff, at KiDS we grow as disciples through music, story, & fun. Plus there’s always a snack. KiDS offers KiDS Choir(shedule here) in the fall and spring where students learn songs to share in worship. In the winter and summer we engage in Bible stories and activities.

Children are always welcome in 10:00 am worship. We offer children’s bulletins & crayons that engage your child in a Biblical coloring page and puzzle. All children are invited forward for the Children’s Moment where they hear a brief story and the scripture for the day. Following the Children’s Moment, children are invited to attend Sunday School.


Staff and volunteers working with children & youth complete the Safe Gatherings Certification, a biblicallybased boundary awareness and abuse prevention program developed to certify volunteer workers, staff and clergy.


Our nursery for ages birth through PreK is located on the main level of the church near the sanctuary. It is staffed by a paidnursery worker and volunteer attendant Sunday mornings.


Children’s Church

We offer Children’s Church for Preschool to 5th grade. Following the Children’s Moment in worship, classes meet on the lower level and are taught by two adult volunteers.
