We provide programs for your children during regularly-scheduled church services, and as support for other ministries of the church.
The Preschool Ministry is for children from birth through age 5.
The Children’s Ministry is for Grades 1 to 5.
These ministries are in separate areas. Ask any member of our Connections Team as you enter the building, and they will be happy to escort you to the proper place.
When can I drop off my children?
We begin receiving children 15 minutes before the event and keep them until the close of the event. We respectfully request that parents honor our volunteers and pick up their children no later than 10 minutes after the event.
On Sunday morning, Preschool aged children will either attend Nursery or Sunday School during the Bible study hour. During the Worship Service, Nursery is provided for Infants through age 3. For your child’s safety, we ask that you sign your children in and pick up a pager from our KidZone Sign-In area. This will allow parents to be located at any time during our Bible studies or Worship if your child has a need. We also ask that you fill out a security/informational tag that provides us with allergy information, feeding times, and special instructions.
During the worship service, children ages 4 years through 2nd grade will be dismissed from the sanctuary by one of our worship leaders to participate in KidzWorship in the KidzWorship room. They will be escorted from the sanctuary by our children’s worship leaders. For your convenience, Children’s Worship Leaders escort these children to the KidZone Sign-In area for pick-up by parents.
Children in 3rd – 5th grades will participate in the 10:45 morning worship service with their parents.

As always, we want to thank you for allowing us to serve your children today. We will do everything we can to keep a healthy environment for your children. We ask for you to help us and the other families by complying with a few health guidelines. Your child should not be in Sunday School or Nursery with the other children if they have any of these symptoms:
A fever currently or within the last 24 hours
An unidentified rash, any open sores or weeping wounds
A harsh cough or large amounts of yellow or green nasal discharge
Any symptom that they usually stay home from school with
Lethargic behavior (moms usually know when the child isn’t feeling well)
Diarrhea or loose stools currently or within the last 24 hours
Vomiting currently or within the last 24 hours
Head lice, pinworms, pinkeye, ringworm, impetigo, etc.
Nursery and Children’s Ministry staff are not permitted to administer any medication (OTC or prescribed) to your children. We are sorry if this presents a scheduling issue for your child and are happy to have you come to the classroom to treat them. We also would ask that you not leave any medications in the classroom with your child or in your child’s bag. The only exception to this is that you may leave asthma related rescue inhalers (properly labeled) with children over the age of 8 years. Please notify the ministry coordinator and classroom teacher that you have done so.
The Children’s Ministry staff reserves the right to ask you to keep your child in the service if they are acting ill or unable to appropriately participate due to illness.
