Each classroom environment invites kids into an engaging setting focused on God’s Word as Kids learn that they are deeply loved by God, to love God and Others.
- Nursery – Infants to 3 years
We provide a safe & loving environment for little ones as they begin to experience God. We realize that this is a big step for young parents to put their baby in the care of others so we are tender and caring with our littles. We also have a Parent Room for moms, dads and their little ones, which is located on the right side of the main sanctuary.
- Preschool- Pre K (3 years to kinder)
We provide a safe & loving environment for preschoolers to learn, discover and explore. Interactive activities help toddlers connect with the lesson of the day. They begin learning: Who God is, God Made Me, and I Am Special.
- Kindergarten- Second Grade
Our early elementary kids are given a chance to learn and wonder about God. They have the opportunity to explore through hands-on activities, exciting worship, and discovery of God’s word.
- Third-Fifth Grade
We provide a fun, age appropriate setting for our older elementary kids. Each Sunday, our kids will participate in worship together through a creative telling of the Bible story, singing together, participating in hands on response stations, small group time and relationship building.
