SUNDAY

Worship

Promiseland Nursery

Child care is provided for ages infant through age 4 during all worship services, Sunday classes, and mid-week services, in the Promiseland Nursery on the lower level. Our well-trained workers will help each child feel comfortable, happy, and secure. We believe it is possible to share the love of Christ with children from the day of their birth.

Praise Packs

Praise Packs are for children who remain in the service during the morning services. They have a number of activities and a mint.

Fidget Bags

Fidget items help to keep hands busy during the service.

Greenhouse & Little Lambs

Where Kids Grow in Christ

Greenhouse (K through 4th grade) and Little Lambs (ages 3-5) takes what goes on in the adult worship service and modifies it for children with fun, age appropriate activities. Kids learn how to worship at their own level.

Kids will be dismissed just after the Children’s Blessing during the service.
