Children’s Ministries


We offer fun and engaging age-appropriate experiences for children to learn what it means to be a follower of Jesus. We have added air-filtration systems to all our children’s classrooms, helping to ensure a healthy environment.

  • Infant/Toddler and Preschool childcare is offered throughout the morning
  • Children’s Sunday School is from 10:10-10:50am
    • Preschool classes meet on the bottom floor of the Norma Story Building.
    • Kindergarten through 4th grade will meet on the top floor of the Norma Story Building

We are offering new resources for children to use during worship designed to engage your child throughout the entire worship service.  We hope you will download and print the attachment prior to watching worship with your children.


There are multiple opportunities for you to help in Children’s Ministries from Nursery Greeters to Children’s Sunday School Leaders. Contact Pam Lentz or click the links below if you are interested in volunteering!
