Nursery through 5th grade


Sunday Small Group Classes

Sunday small group classes (ages 2 – 5th grade) meet at 9:45 a.m. in a small group atmosphere.  This is an excellent way for children to interact and fellowship with other kids their age.  This is also a great time in which they can talk about Bible lessons and how each lesson applies to their lives. There are dedicated teachers at every age level who love the Lord and love sharing His word with children.

FB C.O.O.L. Kids Large Group


 Children’s large group worship time has “elevated” to a whole new level.  Children, Kindergarten (5 years old by Sept. 1, 2010) through 5th grade, are invited to Byrd Hall after a children’s message during the 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. worship services. Children will take an imaginative journey based upon a Biblical Theme Park Map.  Each theme or destination point lasts for 8 weeks so the learning environment remains fresh and exciting.  We invite you to come along and join us each Sunday for a brand new Bible adventure that includes fun kids worship and games.

FB C.O.O.L. Kiddies Large Group

 Preschool Children are invited to leave after a children’s message during the 11:00 a.m. worship service to room #302.  Preschoolers will have a specially designed curriculum called Elevate Jr.  It is based upon the same theme as the elementary kids, just at their level.  They get to take an imaginative journey every 8 weeks to a new destination point that will teach them about people and places in the Bible.
