Children age 3 through 5th grade are invited to attend children's church during our Sunday 11am worship gatherings. Children will meet in age-appropriate classes for a Bible story, prayer, and games.
Parents should check in their children at the Hope Kids counter in our children's wing.
INFANT AND TODDLER CARE
AVAILABLE DURING SUNDAY 11AM SERVICE
The nursery is open for children two years old and younger during our Sunday 11am service. Parents can engage with the worship service knowing their baby is being cared for in a loving, secure environment.
Our well-baby policy ensures the safety and well being of other children. Parents should check in their child at the welcome booth in the children's wing and fill out a child information page. This information makes us aware of any special needs or concerns and ensures children are released only to someone approved for pick-up.

AWANA is a weekly program that teaches Biblical truths with an emphasis on Scripture memorization. The goal of AWANA is to reach children with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and train them to know, love and serve Him.
Using scripture-based programs and exciting games, Awana promotes Bible literacy and help kids grow and develop as lifelong disciples of Christ.
AWANA begins September 22!

I have put my hope in your word."

WHERE DO WE CHECK IN?
Parents/guardians should check-in their child at the welcome desk in the children's wing (east entrance of the building).
If you are a first-time guest, we will ask you to complete some registration information about your child in order to best serve your family.
