Children

Kids need a place where they can learn about the love that Jesus Christ has for them and where they can discover that they are children of a mighty and awesome God. KidZone, held each Sunday during worship, is just that place!

There is a nursery provided during all of worship, while preschoolers and elementary students are asked to stay in worship for the first part of the service. After some musical worship with their parents, kids enjoy a time of learning in KidZone that is geared just for them. Parents, please make sure that you check in at the Welcome Center before worship. Come experience KidZone this Sunday!

NURSERY

"For You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made." Psalm 139:13-14

The world of a young child is one of constant discovery...new people, new things, new tastes, and new experiences. The whole world that God created is one interesting place. KidZone for our youngest ones is a safe place where they can discover the unending love of God through the people who care for them and in the activities of the day. Music, movement, and lots of love make this a place kids want to be! The nursery is designed for infants through those who are just learning to walk.

Care is available for children during the whole service of worship. Parents are welcome to keep their children with them for all of worship or they may choose to allow them to go to the nursery as desired.

PRESCHOOL

"Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs." Matthew 14:19

Energy and intrigue describe well the life of a preschooler. They are beginning to discover all of the abilities God has given to them and they want to try them all out. They discover that much of what they do brings joy and goodness and yet some things cause problems. KidZone is a place where they can learn that all good things come from God above and yet they also can find forgiving love when their own choices cause trouble. Children creatively learn the stories of the Bible and find out how the people of long ago weren’t much different than we are...God was with them just as God is with us!

Preschool students are invited to join us for the early parts of worship and then will be invited to go to KidZone before the message time.

ELEMENTARY

"Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God, the Lord is alone. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise." Deuteronomy 6:4-7

Elementary students are ready to learn the stories of the Bible. They want to know how things happened and why. They want to use their minds and hands to create things to express their understanding of God and love for Jesus Christ. KidZone is just that kind of place where fun and learning go hand in hand. From Noah’s ark to the empty tomb...this is the place to be on Sunday mornings!

Elementary students are invited to join us for the early parts of worship and then will be invited to go to KidZone.
