Our goal is to come alongside the family in their efforts to disciple their children to delight in God and treasure Christ above all else. Using God-centered curriculum, teachers who delight in God, and being dependent on the Holy Spirit, we will declare God’s mighty deeds to the next generation so that they may set their hope in God.

Sunday Morning Classes
Our Kindergarten through Third Grade students are going through Year 1 of Generations of Grace in their individual classes. Generations of Grace is designed to magnify God by studying His character in the pages of Scripture. We can better understand who He is and how we are to respond to Him by studying how His redemptive plan has unfolded and how He has used men to accomplish His purposes. Over a three-year period, this curriculum covers the entire narrative of God’s redemptive plan.
Our Fourth Grade students are learning from curriculum put out by Child Evangelism Fellowship. Throughout the year they will complete studies on people in the Bible who God turned from sin to a life saved in Christ, a series on the birth of Christ and what He means to us as sinners, and how He grew up to lead others to follow God.
Our Fifth and Sixth Grade class is currently finishing up The Young Peacemaker, a study that teaches children how to prevent and resolve conflict in a constructive and biblically faithful manner. Next they will be learning about the book of Revelation using curriculum from Generations of Grace.
Our Kindergarten through Third Grade students start in the Sanctuary with their parents or guardians. They participate in the morning’s worship before being dismissed to the Chapel for Children’s Church.
Fourth through Sixth Grade students remain in the service. We have some helpful tips in our Resources section below to help in preparing your child for being in the worship service.
All who are involved in ministry with our children are required to fill out our Ministry Application and return it to the church office.
