Sunday School meets at 9:45 am each Sunday morning.
Children’s Church is held on Sundays during the services in Room E/F. Children will be dismissed during the worship service. Please use the path through the outer narthex to the preschool, and proceed through the preschool to the education wing to reach the room. Morning Children’s Church is for children ages 3-pre-K, and evening class includes children ages 3-5.
Nursery is available during our worship services – we have nurseries for infants, crawlers, and toddlers. Please visit our nursery suite area and check in your child at the kiosk for the appropriate nursery. A family lounge and feeding rooms are located across from the nurseries if you’d like to utilize them during the service.
Choir meets on Sundays in the music room immediately following the 8:30 am service. Each week the choir spends time in fellowship and song, preparing music for worship as well as our upcoming cantata. We sing because "He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God." (Psalm 40:3) Come, lift high the name of Jesus with us!
A new Adult Ed series, “Gospel Shaped Living,” began in March. New attendees are always welcome! How should Christians live? The church of Jesus Christ should be a distinctive community of God’s people—but how different are we, really, from the rest of the world? Join us on a journey to discover what it means to be a light shining in the darkness. This 7-session class led by Dave Kamp meets in the youth center at 9:45-10:30 am.
