Elementary School

Icon Heading

Throughout the year, activities engage both children (5K - 5th Grade) and their families to deepen their faith in Jesus Christ. A focus upon building Christian relationships develops through time together playing, singing, learning about worship, studying Scripture, and praying together.

SUNDAY WORSHIP

Bring your children — all ages are welcome — and join us for worship. If you prefer, you may entrust your children (birth to 4 years) to our nursery caregivers who have undergone child protection training and background checks.

SUNDAY SCHOOL

Sunday School classes (K-5th Grade) use Cokesbury’s Deep Blue Curriculum that is a comprehensive Bible study for children, incorporating the pillar stories of the Old and New Testaments using different modalities of learning in age-appropriate ways.

CHILDREN’S SUNDAY

Children’s Sunday provides an opportunity for the children of the church to unite the prayers for worship and then assist in leading all four worships services on Children’s Sabbath. In addition to celebrating the children of our church family, Children’s Ministries also collects a special offering that offsets background check expenses for our caregivers and teachers.

FIRST GRADE WORSHIP

First Grade Worship is a six-week program designed for our first graders to learn the different components of worship and the basic elements of the sacraments. Our prayer is that they will continue to worship with their families and attend Sunday School weekly.

THIRD GRADE BIBLES

Third Grade Bibles are presented to all of our third graders during a special worship service. As the children learn about the Bible in Sunday School, we pray that God will open their hearts and minds to the stories of Scripture and that they will be reminded of His incredible love for them. Through their reading, we hope the children, and their families, will be blessed and strengthened as disciples of God.

LOGOS

LOGOS is the theology and practice of inter-generational Christian relationships in a disciplined, mid week, four-part context for elementary children. Together we play, sing, study Scripture, eat and pray. All of these activities combined provide a foundation to grow together in faith. Wednesday nights.

NIGHT SCHOOL CLASSES FOR PARENTS

Night School Classes For Parents are a variety of classes designed to help you grow in faith. New classes are offered throughout the year and address a wide range of issues Christians face in daily living.
