Our goal is to help our children become true disciples of Jesus Christ by building relationships with them, being examples for them and teaching them God’s Word.
We're excited to welcome your children on Sunday morning! Orange, our vibrant Sunday School strategy for preschool through 7th grade, combines the light of the church (yellow) with the heart of the family (red) to form a lifelong faith in Christ (orange). Each month has a theme—kindness, love—that is carried through with easy lessons to do at home. There’s even an app (Parent Cue) that you can use on the go! The result? Home + Church = Greater Impact.
Sunday School takes place at 10:00 am in the chapel. Nursery and Pre-K meet in room 211. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early to "check in."
