Sunday School

Our Sunday School program provides a warm, loving, and accepting environment for children in preschool through 7th grade to learn about the Christian faith. Using the Deep Blue Bible curriculum, and Submerge: Deep Blue for Tweens, children will learn about God and what it means to be a follower of Jesus while making friends and having fun. Parents can download the Deep Blue app
for games for your kids to play.

Nursery Care

Every Sunday, care is provided during the 9:00 and 10:45 services. Our nursery is staffed by a childcare professional for infants and young children age birth to 3 years old in our nursery.
Care is also available during the 10:20 service on the 1st and 3rd Sundays. 


For 8th & 9th grade students, Confirmation provides an opportunity for teens to grow in their faith, knowledge, and love of God.
It’s tons of fun! Students will ultimately confirm the vows made at their baptism by being Confirmed during worship. They will become members of our church.

Cool Christians Club (CCC)

For youth in 3rd – 6th grade, CCC meets Sundays at 5:00 – 6:30 pm. All are invited to participate in games, crafts, and cooking while learning about the Bible.
