  • First Flight (2's and Early 3's)

    We love to see little personalities emerge as children play and worship in our First Flight class!  Children are provided with plenty of free play in a safe and closely supervised area.  We teach our 2's and early 3's simple songs and Bible stories through hands on and exploratory lessons and provide them with snacks and potty breaks that match their growing independence.  On Wednesday nights, our Puggles program teaches Children about How God made us and loves us nurturing a deep respect for God.  Parents will need to sign their children in and out of this class and pagers are available so we can contact you should your child need assistance.

  • The Nest (0-24 months)

    The Nest is our nursery area for infants and toddlers (0-24 months).  We welcome parents to use our nursery or keep their children with them as they attend worship.  Parents can check their children into the Nest during each of our services.  We provide a safe and nurturing environment with a staff that loves to work with young children. Parents are provided with a pager so we can notify you if your child needs to connect with you during the service.  Nursing mothers can find a private room off of our nursery if needed.  Our nursery staff seeks to encourage families and provide quality care that helps families build a solid faith foundation for their children.



CORE TRUTHS FOR PRESCHOOLERS

  • GOD MADE YOU
  • GOD LOVES YOU
  • JESUS WANTS TO BE YOUR FRIEND FOREVER

We want each preschooler to understand that God Made them, God Loves Them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever!  We teach primarily through story and hands on activities that provide an understanding of the Bible and teach respect for God.  The stories we share, the materials in the classroom, and the routines during our classes are all designed to help your child authentically respond to God in a way that deepens and strengthens their understanding of God and sets them on a path of discovery where they explore God's greatness through wonder and imagination.  On Wednesday nights, preschool children participate in First Look where they memorize scripture, play and learn in a fun environment.
