The Worship and Wonder program is a Montessori style approach to linking Bible stories with imagination and real-life experience of children.  In a quiet setting, children hear Bible stories, learn to ask questions, and continue to act out Bible stories using special wood carved kits designed for each story. Click here for the 2016-2017 Schedule.

Arrival procedures:

For children K4-5th grade: Parents will check-in their children in the Narthex. Upon check-in, children will be seated with their parents in the sanctuary. When invited, all children will come forward, in front of the platform, for the Praise Songs, Children’s Time, and Prayer. At the conclusion of prayer, all children will be dismissed with the Children’s Ministries staff to Faith Hall for the Children’s programs. Children may be picked up in Faith Hall after service.

For Little Learners and Toddler Care: Check-in will be in Faith Hall, or the Narthex. Toddlers will not be in the sanctuary. Toddlers love to play and interact with one another, and we provide a safe and enjoyable atmosphere for them. They also love to be read stories. These children love to play and interact, along with having a simple Bible story.  We also learn some traditional children's Bible songs. When the weather is nice, we take a trip to the playground.

Nursery: Newborns up to 2 years is located across from the Cry Room: Check-in will be held in the Narthex by a staff member. To help us provide a safe, calm and enjoyable experience for your baby, please bring bottles, pacifiers or a special blanket. Let us know any details concerning feeding or napping schedules.
