Sunday School for Children — 3 years to 5th Grade
Sunday School begins at 9:15 am and ends at 10:15 am. Kindly bring your child/ren to the lower level to sign them in before taking them to their classroom. If you attend the 9:00 am service you may sign your children in upstairs in the lobby. Your child may leave the service at the “passing of the peace” to attend their class located downstairs.
Little Lambs – 2 to 3 year olds
This play-based program introduces young children to the Bible stories about God and his Son, Jesus. We hope that each child will experience God’s love in Jesus and begin to respond to that love as the Holy Spirit plants seeds in each heart.
Kindly sign your child into Little Lambs prior to the 10:30 service in the Little Lamb’s room.
Children and Worship – 4 to 2nd grade
The program offers singing, Bible story, response to God’s word and prayer in a way that makes worship accessible to young children. Our hope is to prepare children for worship in the sanctuary. Kindly sign your child into Children and Worship in the lobby as you enter the church. The sign in sheet is located to the right.
Children are invited to leave through the back doors of the sanctuary during the “passing of the peace” to meet a greeter in the lobby. They will be guided downstairs to their worship area. You may pick up your child following the service.
Young Disciples – 3rd to 5th grade
This is a transitional worship opportunity that bridges the gap between Children and Worship and sanctuary worship. Children will learn about the different aspects of worship and go deeper in their understanding of baptism, communion, confession, the Lord’s Prayer, and more. Young Disciples meets twice a month in the Pieter’s Room, on the second and fourth Sundays, during the 10:30 am service.
Young Disciples will meet on the following dates: October 11, 25, November 8, 22, December 13, January 10, 24, February 14, 28, March 13, April 10, 24, May 8, and 22. A reminder email will be sent a few days before each gathering of Young Disciples.
