Children’s Church

Children’s Church is a 1½ hour session that takes place each Sunday morning during the regular worship hour for children 2½ years old to those who are currently completing kindergarten (or equivalent age). It is designed to aid parents in their responsibilities of preparing their child for group worship and teaching them the truths of God’s Word. This weekly session provides an age-appropriate environment in which children will:

  • Be introduced to the enjoyment and wonder of worshipping our great God
  • Learn the specifics of cooperation and obedience in a group setting
  • Learn the basic situations of group worship format: (e.g., singing, offering, listening to God’s Word, introduction to the meaning of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, etc.)
  • Learn and practice appropriate worship service behavior, which prepares them to participate with parents in the regular church service
  • Practice the discipline of listening to and thinking with a group leader as he or she presents God’s truths
  • Learn the truths of God’s Word and begin to apply them to his/her individual life
