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.

Little Church

Children who are two, three, or four are welcome at Little Church, which is located in the Nursery. Little Church introduces them to God and God’s special stories. Little Church meets during the 9:00 and 11:15 AM worship services.


Where Kids Grow in Christ

The Greenhouse 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.

All kids, ages 5 through 4th graders, are invited to the Greenhouse. Kids will be dismissed from the Sanctuary just after the Children’s Blessing during the service.
