Nursery & Elementary

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” — Matthew 19:14

ReCharge: Children

PreK/K and our elementary children will begin each Sunday from August-May by singing songs before they head into their classrooms. The children will dive deeper into God’s word with Bible lessons, songs, videos, and hands-on activities. Celebrate Wonder curriculum will help engage our children’s natural curiosity to help them understand God’s word through storytelling, life applications, and exploring God’s word. Celebrate Wonder encourages creativity along with using their imagination to bring the Bible stories to life to help them understand God’s love.

Sunday Funday: On the following Sundays, we will be having fun with a different theme each time. Meets 10:30-11:15 am.

  • October 15: Fall Into Fun, sign up here
  • December 17: Celebrating Jesus
