Welcome! We’re happy that you’re going to visit! Please stop by the Children’s Welcome Desk on the second floor to check your child in. Complete an information card and then we’ll print two name tags for you. The name tags will print with your child’s name, any allergies they may have and the location of their classroom. Place one name tag on your child and keep the other to present when picking up your child. We’ll also show you where your child’s class is located and introduce you to his or her teachers.
If you are a returning guest, you may check your child in at the check-in stations located in the Children’s Welcome Area on the second floor. The computer will print two name tags with your child’s name, any allergies they may have and the location of their classroom. Place one name tag on your child and keep the other to present when picking up your child. If you need assistance, let someone at the Children’s Welcome Desk know and we’ll be happy to help you with the process.
Keeping Your Children Safe
When your child is on the campus of our church, his or her safety is our top priority. That's why we work very hard to have plans in place in the event of an emergency, like a fire or tornado. Read the details of our emergency procedures here.
Children's LIFE Groups
8:00, 9:30 & 11:00 AM
Children may attend while their parents are in LIFE Groups or Worship. Classes are available for each grade during all three hours. Teachers prepare to teach using curriculum called Bible Studies for Life from LifeWay Christian Resources.
Each age group participates in planned learning activities based on a central Bible teaching truth/verse and a Bible story. They will also hear the biblical message on their level of understanding. We want children to value coming to church.
Parents will receive a take-home page designed to help them reinforce the biblical message the child learned during their LIFE Group.
Marketplace (Grades 1-4)
Marketplace is an interactive, multi-sensory experience for children that provides an innovative way of connecting them to Jesus Christ and bringing the Bible to life!
It is an exciting place where kids can go to use all their senses to see, hear, smell, taste and touch what life was like in biblical times.
Each week, they will experience the same Bible story they learned about in their LIFE Group in a unique, fascinating way. Marketplace is a place you can leave your child and know that they will experience the truths of God’s Word!
NEW!! Beginning on January 10, 2016 we will offer a brand new worship experience for 4th & 5th graders! This service will be offered during the 9:30 and 11:00 AM worship services and complements what children will be learning in their LIFE Groups. Children in grades 1-3 will continue attending Marketplace.
KidLife includes music, age group Bible study, missions and more. Your children are transitioned seamlessly from KidLife Music to the Large Group Activity Time and then to their Small Group Bible Study. The KidLife program begins Wednesday, August 12 and meets weekly during the school year.
KidLife Music │ 6:00-6:40 PM
KidLife Music focuses on basic music education and musical themes related to biblical truths. Children gain a better understanding of the meaning of worship and how to be supportive worship leaders. This group participates in worship and related events throughout the school year.
KidLife Large Group Activity │ 6:45-7:00 PM
Following KidLife Music children move into a large group activity time. Children in grades 1-5 will meet together for a fun activity or game before they begin their small group Bible study.
KidLife Small Group Bible Study │ 7:00-7:45 PM
KidLife Small Group Bible Study follows the Large Group Activity Time. Children are grouped according to grade and the biblical focus is on teaching children about spiritual practices. Parents can pick children up from their small group after 7:30 PM.
