2 Peter 1:3 “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness, through our knowledge of Him who called us.”
Classes offered on Sunday mornings (9:30-10:15) and Wednesday evenings (7:00-8:00).
Children’s Minister: Melanie Gibson
Nursery (NB to 1 year)
Our babies are loved and nurtured in a caring environment. A simple class routine of songs of Jesus, the Bible, and creation are introduced to our babies.
Toddler’s (1 to 3 years)
Our toddlers’ learn about a month of creation for 7 months, and then spend the next 4 months on a different sense God has given us. The last month Baby Jesus is taught. Through song and exploration of the senses, our toddlers are excited to learn and grow into their independent selves, knowing that Jesus loves and created them.
3’s and 4’s
Our 3’s and 4’s theme is “Let’s Learn God’s Ways.” Each quarter has a different focus: Quarter 1 – God’s Way With Me, Quarter 2 – God’s Way with Family and Friends, Quarter 3 – God’s Way with the World, & Quarter 4 – I Choose God’s Way. The Bible story is repeated on Sunday morning and Wednesday evening with varying activities – art, science/math, look and listen, creative movement, game, and snack bin.
Pre-K and Kindergarten
In a year span, our children are taken through the major stories of the Bible, learning a different story on Sunday morning and Wednesday night. Different activities are planned to reinforce lesson concepts. On Wednesday evenings, children rotate in groups to arts & Crafts, games or music, and food/snack.
1st to 6th grade
Through various storytelling techniques, the Bible story is presented in its entirety.
Music & Memory
Through the use of song and music games, our students will memorize the Bible and its concepts. Our hope is that by the time our students leave 5th grade, they will have 60 plus verses in their heart.
Geography & Culture
Our students will learn the culture of what was happening in the world during the Bible story and also where in the world this story took place. The students will also use a timeline to help them understand how this particular story fits into the “big picture” of the Bible.
Wednesday Night Classes
Art, Science, and Cooking
Students will use their hands to cook, create, learn, and experience the Bible story. Our goal is that through experiences the knowledge of the Bible will stick long after the story is told.

CHAOS is the Japanese symbol for opportunity. We take the opportunity once a quarter to “mix” things up and create opportunities to learn and reach out. We begin the evening with a meal and singing. Then, students learn and rotate throughout stations: food & puppets, games, and arts/crafts.
