Nursery

Nursery

For our youngest children, our nursery is available during the Education Hour and also during worship services. We encourage children ages 3 and up to participate in Sunday School as they can. Our nursery is staffed by nurturing childcare providers who are trained in First Aid and certified in CPR.

Pre-K and Kindergarten

Pre-K and Kindergarten

We use GODLY PLAY! In this curriculum, we understand that children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them explore their faith through story, gain religious language and enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. It is based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum.

Children Grades 1-2 and 3-4

Children Grades 1-2 and 3-4

We use a two-year curriculum that encourages children to explore Bible stories in a hands-on, engaging way. Using the Sparkhouse curriculum, every fall we explore stories from the Old Testament, and then we shift to the New Testament starting in the winter. Each week, kids and their leaders gather together to explore their Bibles, enjoy fun activities, pray, grow in faith, and have a blast while doing it!

Grades 5-6-7

Grades 5-6-7

We have a Sunday School class geared specifically for older kids. The curriculum encourages our youth to explore fundamental questions of our faith in a hands-on, age-appropriate, experiential way. Each week, kids and their leaders gather together to explore their Bibles, enjoy fun activities, pray, grow in faith, and begin developing their personal theology.
