Children’s Church features age-appropriate Bible lessons, activities, outside play time and snacks with trained and screened volunteers.

5th – 6th Grade

We believe that 5th and 6th grade students are able to comprehend much of what is being taught in the Worship Service. We value family worship and so we encourage parents to help their children follow along and learn to participate in this aspect of worship. During the Sunday School,10:45 – 11:45, we offer a small group teaching time with God-centered and Bible saturated curriculum. Leaders are trained, screened and committed to discipling children to grow in their knowledge of, love for and trust in God.


Our Curriculum

The majority of our curriculum comes from Children Desiring God Ministries. Distinctives of this curriculum are:

God-Centered – God is the main character in all of life

Bible-Based – the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, authoritative Word of God

Doctrinally-Sound – teaches children all the essential doctrines of the Christian faith

Depth – gives students big truths expressed and explained in easily and age-appropriate terms and illustrations

Incremental – presents the whole counsel of God, precept upon precept

Application – the lessons engage the mind, yet aim for a right heart response to the truth
