Children's Ministry

SUNDAY SCHOOL

Children ages 3 through 5th grade meet in the sanctuary & begin the morning by greeting each other.  Then they head downstairs to different classrooms for a variety of activities. The 3 year- olds through 2nd grade students have a music time with our Director of Music Ministries (Carla Metz).  The songs are often presented to the congregation for various special occasions. All the students hear or read Bible stories, the familiar and new, to strengthen their belief in God’s word and to learn how to put their trust in Him.

 

Their Christian growth continues to be nurtured with our two year confirmation class for teens in grades 6-8 (which takes places on the 1st Sunday of each month from 4pm-6pm.


We offer a combined Jr. & Sr. High Sunday School class every Sunday morning as well.  

 

We also strive to develop in our children an understanding of their responsibility for the world. To do this we have various mission projects throughout the Sunday School year. Some of these projects include making cards and favors for our church’s Thanksgiving and Easter baskets, making Christmas gifts for the staff, sending cards to shut-ins, Operation Christmas Child, and Covenant Kids missions. We often combine classes for these projects and have been known to invite the adults to join in our fun!  


Schedule:

Sunday School classes meet each Sunday for one hour from 9 am to 10 am (Labor Day through Memorial Day)

 

Worship Service Childcare

"CHERUB TIME"

Infants are welcome in the worship service! We know that babies sometimes make more noise than adults, but that’s okay...in fact, it’s one of the things we love about them!  We believe that children are an important part of our community, and we are glad to have them learning about God with us.  If you feel more comfortable taking your child out of the sanctuary, childcare (known as "CHERUB TIME") is provided downstairs in our "Yellow Room" which is staff by two caring volunteers (with background clearances) during the worship service (from 10:15-about 11:30).
