Nursery & Toddler Care

There is complete care for infants and children under three years of age for the entire morning beginning at 9:10 am (10:15 am during the summer).

Even small babies begin to learn about God’s love as they are cared for in the nursery. They begin to feel comfortable at church as people, other than their parents, play with them and meet their needs. Likewise, the screened and trained volunteers become attached to the children creating the feel of an extended family. This is the child’s first introduction into Christian community.

As the infant grows into a toddler teachers introduce major bible stories and engage young children in related crafts, songs, and activities. Kids get lots of hugs and love!

PreK-1st Grade

In this fun class, puppets introduces children to theology at a basic level. Using a curriculum based on the book Leading Little Ones to God, they cover topics like Who is God?, How Sin Spoiled the World, God’s Law and Justice, What Jesus Did, and How We Become Children of God. Kids use songs and games to work on memorizing the books of the New Testament as well as some key verses, like the Fruit of the Spirit.  Kids are also guided in different types of prayers, learning how to praise, give thanks, repent, and intercede.

2nd-4th Grade

This classes uses the TRUstory curriculum, which cycles though the entire Bible each year, but with different stories through a four-year cycle. The stories are put in geographic and biblical context, consistently reviewing basic biblical knowledge, and focusing on the stories’ place in the redemption narrative. We read a biography of Nate Saint, and work on memorizing short portions of Romans 12 and Psalm 139 and the books of the Old Testament.

5th-6th Grade

Our older elementary school students learn how to study the Bible for themselves. In previous years they have studied the book of Acts, the history of the early church through the reformation, 5 major world religions and how we can love people from those cultures and share Christ with them. They review the books of the Bible, work on memorizing short sections of scripture, a pray together.
