Our Children's Ministries seek to provide a loving, fun, and safe environment where children will develop physically, emotionally, and spiritually! Our ministries offer age-appropriate activities and relevant Bible teaching.

Sunday School

Children's Sunday school classes are available during both the 9:00 and 10:45 am services
Children are welcome to attend during either of those times—or both!

Paradise Island (Infants, Toddlers, and Preschool Children)
Sunday Mornings • 9:00 & 10:45 am

Paradise Island is a colorful and safe place for the youngest members of the church, those preschool age
and younger. Here, they get to play and make friends while they are introduced to the stories and love
of Jesus. Secure check-in starts at the front desk of Paradise Island, located on the lower level (north end
of the building). We ask parents to list their cell phone number or a pager number (pagers are provided)
-during check-in, so we can be in touch if needed.

Route 66 (Grades K-5, for the Summer)
Sunday Mornings • 9:00 am

Route 66 helps students in grades K-5 grow in their understanding of Jesus through the teaching of God's Word, music, and small group discussion. We are currently observing summer hours with only one class at 9:00 am. Our teaching schedule is posted to the right so you can see what your child will be learning each week.

Awana →

During the school year, Awana provides children in our community with a casual and safe
environment—where life in Jesus is regularly presented—and helps them develop in the
Christian life through Bible teaching and memorization, games, and activities.
