Let's Gather Together Before Worship!
LOGOS & Angel Notes (Preschool and Elementary Ages)
Angel Notes Choir is our preschool choir, occurring Wednesday evenings. Children learn music, instruments, and have a Bible lesson.
LOGOS Choir and LOGOS programming involve playing, singing, and learning together during choir practice, Bible time, recreation, and fellowship over a meal.
Kids Can is our initiative for children to get involved in mission and service in their home and around the world. This summer’s weeklong Kids Can event taught our kids so much about being in service to God’s kingdom, and we will continue to engage our children in local and international mission efforts throughout the year.

Early Childhood - Infants through Preschool
Loving childcare is provided for infants, toddlers, and young children by staff who have undergone child protection training and background checks.
Seabrook Playground is a wonderland of enjoyment for preschool aged children. It is newly constructed, age-appropriate equipment with safety in mind. Currently closed due to COVID precautions.
New Baby Ministry
This ministry welcomes all babies born into our congregation with a rosebud from the worship service, a cradle cross, and an informational folder delivered by young moms to the family home.
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.
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.
Vacation Bible School
This traditional week of learning, dancing, playing, and fellowship takes place in June of each year, and we would love to see you! Registration opens February 1 for members and March 1 for guests.
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.
