Sunday Evening

Third & Fourth Grade — Our middle elementary group is challenged to explore God’s Word through the RIO material in a very real, purposeful way through application that gives reason for God’s story written throughout Bible history. Children participate in meaningful activities that apply  God’s Word to their daily life.

Fifth & Sixth Grade — Our upper elementary kids are learning how to be powerful and intentional in their love  and service for Christ. The RIO material challenges them to go deep into God’s Word and draws out passages of Scripture that help them understand the reality of what it means to follow Christ.

Children’s Café — Children who are Kindergarten through 6th grade arrive for a transition time in the KidzConnection  Clubhouse. Games, activities, missions projects, and memory work games of all sorts are provided. This time gives children the ability to form friendships and welcome new children into our program.

KidzRock is a high energy worship time designed especially for our upper elementary children who worship during the 9:30 hour.  A group of adult leaders, teen leaders, Outloud kids, and Tech kids create an engaging environment where kids in grades fourth through sixth grade learn to praise God with singing, communion, and offering.

KidzExalt is an engaging worship time designed especially for our early elementary children who worship during the 11:00 hour. A group of adult leaders, junior high students, and Tech kids create an environment where kids in grades kindergarten through third grade learn to praise God with singing, communion, and offering.

Memory and More is an interactive opportunity for  reinforcement of the Bible memory verses taught in Sunday school. Children also learn their Old Testament and New Testament Books of the Bible as well as various facts surrounding God’s Word. Children interact with each other and with their leaders through games, group quizzing, and individual recitation.

Children’s Church Lesson —  is an opportunity for the children to participate in a large group lesson. The content each week coincides with what the children are learning in their Sunday school classes. Large group games, multi-media, drama, and various visuals are used to make this an exciting learning opportunity for everyone.

Pioneer Clubs are offered for all kids age two through 6th grade.  Pioneer Clubs is a fun, award-based program similar to scouting that is held every Sunday night from 6:30 to 7:30. Each week the children will work on a Bible award and two activity awards (art, woodworking, sports, etc).

Each award typically takes four weeks to complete and three badges will be awarded at the end of each four-week unit. Students will complete a handbook to record their learning and accomplishments.

Sunday Morning

Little Sparks (Babies to 4-year-olds) From the time our babies arrive in the nursery, they are taught using the Palma Smiley hands-on multisensory lessons from 0-24 month. We also use HeartShaper material for our ones & twos and our threes and fours classes. Children are presented with 102 different Bible stories in an interactive, multisensory manner.

Kindergarten — Our five-year-olds explore God’s Word with their own interactive lessons filled with Bible stories, crafts, and games from the RIO material from David C. Cook. They are encouraged to learn these lessons in a multisensory environment filled with toys and equipment to enhance their experience.

First & Second Grade — This early elementary group is introduced to the timeline of God’s story through the RIO material from DC Cook. Children participate in active learning filled with breakout sessions and go deep sessions that make God’s Word come alive in their lives.
