Sunday Morning

Nursery for Infants and Toddlers

Nursery is available and attended on Sundays, 9:15-10:45 am. The room is open to use (unattended) on Sundays, 7:45-9:15 am. It is located near the restrooms, the next door down the hall.

Worshipping with Small Children

Children are welcome in all of our worship services. God loves the little children, and so do we!

Rainbow Bags and books are available to use during worship. Feel free to have your child grab a bag on the way into service from the Narthex or Family Life Center lobby.

Children's Message

Our focus is to connect the theme and message of the day in a simpler way that children can understand and relate to on their level.

We are inviting children to come forward for Children's Messages. If you are not comfortable doing so, we encourage you to sit near the front so the kids can
feel more included.

Children's Church

Occasionally, Children's Church is held during the 11:00 am Praise service in the Family Life Center. Children, ages 3-6, would be dismissed before the sermon for a 20-minute Bible lesson with corresponding crafts and songs. This is a time to help grow their faith.

 

Youth Group

K.I.C.K.S  (Kids In Christ Keep Shining)

K.I.C.K.S. provides fun and fellowship for kids in 3rd-5th grade.

Next Event: Friday, March 18 from 6:00-7:15 pm in the Gym, Family Life Center

This month's event is March Madness! We will play some basketball - fun for even non-basketball players. We will also have a Lent devotion and talk about some of the madness that exists in our world, how prayer is important and something we can do together, with our family, or even alone.

Hope to see lots of 3rd-5th graders! Wear comfortable clothes and gym shoes would be very helpful.

Please RSVP to MaryAnn Unger at or text (cell number in RCB).
