Loving the Way Jesus Loves!
♦ Infants & Toddlers (3 months – 36 months)
We believe children are a gift from God, and in the nursery we don’t take that lightly. Our wonderful caregivers see their time on Sunday mornings as an opportunity to bless the little ones and their families. This is a safe environment where we offer snack, play time, an interactive learning time, and sometimes a craft! Nursery is much more than childcare; it is ministering the love of Jesus to the babies and toddlers.
♦ Preschool (3-5 years old)
Preschoolers are so much fun, and interactive play time is a vital part of their growth. So our amazing team of teachers and helpers use crafts, play, songs, and fun activities to learn about God’s Word and who He is. At Bible story time, teachers provide opportunities for the children to act out what they are learning, which helps preschoolers understand what’s being taught. It is an honor for us to be a part of sharing God’s love to the preschoolers.
♦ K-2nd Grade
We consider it a gift to be a part of each child’s life. To be given the opportunity to share the love of God with them, be a part of their relationship with Him, and watch them mature spiritually is a blessing to us. This age is excited to learn about and experience more of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. So we offer opportunities to experience more of Him through prayer and worship, Bible lessons, crafts, activities and outreach projects. It is amazing to partner with the Lord and be a part of what He is doing in the children’s lives! The children at this age are full of fantastic questions, and their understanding of Biblical concepts is amazing. What most excites us is when the children connect with the Lord. It is our desire that they know how much they are loved by Him. Freedom in worship, prayer time, exciting Bible lessons, fun crafts, various activities and outreach projects promote and encourage children to also desire that connection with Him.
♦ 3rd-5th Grade
Our goal is to help these children discover God’s special destiny for their lives. We provide them a safe place to grow as they mature in their unique role in God’s kingdom, as well as to have fun discovering the love of their Father and making new friends. In addition, we spend time asking God to ignite a fire in their hearts that will cause them to know and experience God in a deep way. Through reading/studying the amazing Word of God and training on how tohear God’s voice, children learn to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and to what He is saying to them and to others. They also learn about intercession and prayer.
