We encourage children to participate in our 9:30 am church worship services as much as they are able, recognizing that they take in far more than we realize. Even if they don’t understand everything going on around them, they can begin to gain a sense of awe for God and reverence for his word as they watch adults worship God with all their hearts and sit under the authoritative teaching of God’s word.
Deciding when a child should be expected to sit through part or all of a service is a wisdom issue. We have chosen to offer nursery for ages 0-3 during our entire service, though some parents choose to have their youngest ones with them until the sermon. For children age 4 through kindergarten, we offer a children’s church time during the sermon.
We also have Sunday school for children up through middle school from 11:00-11:50 am. We encourage high school students to participate in one of our adult Sunday school classes. Sunday school provides a time for age-specific teaching and discussion in God’s word. We take a God-centered approach to our teaching, helping children to see and apply the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ to every area of their lives.
