Kids on a Mission
Kids on a Mission is a program for children in kindergarten through 4th grade. It meets from 9:00 am to 9:50 am on Sunday morning in the Great Hall. Each session is stand alone, and children are welcome to come as they are able.
Children who participate in Kids on a Mission will work on a variety of hands-on mission projects, from pillowcases for our college students to Christmas cards for hospital patients. We hope your children will enjoy helping others through this new program.
Loving care is provided for our infants and toddlers during both the 9:00 a.m. hour and 10:15 a.m. worship services. Preschoolers are also welcome in the nursery during these times. They are encouraged to participate in the 10:15 a.m. Sunday School class designed with their needs in mind. Our nursery care provider is Sandy Lennartz who is experienced in early childhood education and has been supervising the church nursery since 2005. Sandy is often assisted by church volunteers as well. Pagers are available so that parents may be notified to return to the nursery if their child needs them.
Ages 3-5 (Kindergarten)
Frolic preschool curriculum leverages best practices in early childhood education to encourage preschoolers to explore faith concepts the way they know best—through play!
Whirl curriculum helps elementary-age students learn to seek faith and understanding through the Bible’s message. Videos with animated characters show kids what it’s like to live out their faith and how to face questions and challenges.
Service and Prayer
Our primary focus for Sunday School for 2019-20 is on service and prayer. Each week students will engage in a prayer activity and be empowered to continue that practice in the home. Once each month, we will break from our normal schedule of Bible stories and focus on a service project which connects us to the congregation and the larger community during our normal Sunday School time for all ages, three year old’s through fourth grade.
