Jr. Church (3 years - 3rd grade)
We know that it’s difficult for most children to focus during services, that’s why we offer Jr. Church during worship, all year round. Before going in to the service, please bring your children (3 years old - 3rd grade) to the Ark for a worship service designed just for them. Children will be brought to the back of the Sanctuary before Communion, during the sharing of the peace, for you to pick up.
Sunday School (3 years - 6th grade)
Sunday School is offered on Sundays at 10:15am. We will be dancing, singing, and digging deeper in our knowledge of God, with lessons, snacks, crafts, and games!
Our Sunday School classes will end on June 3 for the summer and resume on Rally Day, Sunday, September 9.

Hot Chocolate with God (H.C.W.G.) is a small group Bible Study for girls in K-6th grade, held during the school year on Friday nights. Check the calendar for specific dates. The girls do a lot of fun things throughout the church, and hold monthly meetings.
As the girls volunteer their time, they build relationships, make new friends, have fun, learn about God and how he wants us to live in this journey called life.
The book “Hot Chocolate With God” by Camryn Kelly with Jill and Erin Kelly is used as their devotional. In the book there is a scripture that says this: “Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for believers in speech, in life, in faith and in purity".
All are welcome!
