"Then He took a little child and set him in the midst of them. And when He had taken him in His arms, He said to them, “Whoever receives one of these little children in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me, receives not Me but Him who sent Me.”

Mark 9:36-37


Childcare is available during the 9:00 Sunday morning small groups and the 10:30 Worship Service. 

Parents will need to provide contact information at sign-in. The same person who signs the child in will be the only one allowed to pick the child up unless the child care worker is familiar with your family. For safety reasons, we don’t allow children to be picked up by anyone under the age of 18.

Babies from birth to walking are cared for in a safe and clean environment by skilled care givers with a love for God and His children. Our nursery is equipped with developmentally appropriate toys and furniture, rockers for soothing, and Christian CD music for babies as well as picture books about God and His creation.


Children that are walking and up to 2 yrs. old will be welcomed in the Toddler Room. The little ones will learn about God’s love through storytelling, singing and games provided by teachers who have a passion and love for God and His children. There’s a lot of activity in the Toddler room, with plenty of developmentally appropriate toys that your little ones will enjoy!


Pre-school age children (2 and 3 yr. olds) are taught basic Bible truths through stories, pictures and songs by leaders with a love for children and God’s word. Their little hands will be kept busy with crafts, games, and activities that show them who God is, His love, and all about His Son, Jesus! Care for preschoolers is offered for all services.

Nursery School


Our Pre-K class is for 4-year-olds and is a perfect place for your little one to learn about the love of God and how He sent His Son to save us. They will be kept busy with Bible stories, songs, and crafts.


Children 5-years-old through the 6th grade have Sunday School at 9:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary Building. Children’s Church occurs during Church service, beginning at 10:30 a.m. in the Student Chapel (side door).  You can drop off your children before Church or, if they attend Sunday School, they will be taken to Children’s Church. Please pick up your children after services as soon as you can; a volunteer will need to check them out.


We are looking for volunteers to help us in our growing nursery, toddler, PreK, Children’s Church and Sunday School classes! If you are looking for a way to plug into our church by helping with little ones or just have questions about our Children’s Ministry, please feel free to contact Debra McDonel, our Children’s Minister.


The A.W.A.N.A program is a fun-filled Bible-based ministry for children and teens. It takes place every Wednesday from 6:00 -7:30 pm throughout the school year. Below you will find the different classes your child can attend. We invite your family to come check us out.



In Puggles, children participate in playtime, songs, simple crafts and activities. Leaders present age-appropriate lessons using large, colorful teaching cards, finger puppet plays and more. Lessons teach and reinforce four basic Biblical precepts:
• God made everything.
• God saw that it was good.
• God is love.
• Give thanks.
Special take-home cards that correspond to each week’s lesson help parents nurture their child’s faith at home. Participating in Puggles will give your child a head start on the path to loving and following God for life.
