We offer small groups and children’s worship during both the 9:45 and 11:00 worship services. The details and schedules follow.
9:45 a.m. – Small groups and Children’s Worship for children ages four through fourth grade meet weekly. Nursery care is available for younger children.
We are introducing a new curriculum, Tru, that is uniquely created to inspire, equip and support families and leaders in their ministry to children. Tru uses the small group – large group format to tell God’s Big Story through use of the Bible. This curriculum reveals the Tru story of God’s redemption plan, with the goal of engaging children so they are able to remember, understand and live God’s word.
11:00 a.m. – Small groups and Children’s Worship for children ages two through sixth grade. Nursery care is available for younger children.
On the first Sunday of each month, all children in pre-K through sixth grade will join their families in the sanctuary for worship. Following the Children’s Moment, children in pre-K through first grade may join their Sunday school small group. Students in second through sixth grade will continue in worship with their families.
Second through fourth Sundays and when there is a fifth, all children will go directly to their classrooms.
We are looking forward to a second great year using a curriculum called Orange. This program synchronizes the light of the church (yellow) with the love of the family (red) making orange (the church and the family working together toward the same goal – to connect the children more deeply with God). This curriculum instills wonder in preschoolers to help them embrace a God who is bigger than their imagination and sparks discovery in elementary children, who gain a new understanding of how to grow in their relationship with God.
At both hours, the children will begin in their rooms with their small group leaders, doing activities that will introduce them to the day’s Bible story. Then small groups gather together for worship – where they will experience a story from the Bible brought to life through storytelling, skits, singing, and dancing. Finally, the small group leaders will gather the children and take them back to their rooms for activities that allow the children to further explore and apply the Bible story.
