Children's Ministries

Our children's ministries offer opportunities for children to worship, learn, and play from the time they are babies through the 5th grade!

Nursery

Church St. Campus - Room 102

Harding Ave. Campus - Downstairs

Our nursery is open every Sunday morning to welcome newborns through 3-year olds! The youngest members of our church family are cared for by paid staff members and volunteers. A silent pager is provided to you when you drop off your child in the nursery so that the caregivers can reach you during the service if needed.

Sunday School

Church St. Campus - Room 109 and Room 211

Kingdom Kids is our class for preschoolers who will be 3 or 4 years old by 9/30/18. In this class, the children enjoy Bible stories, simple crafts, games, and a snack. The Kingdom Kids meet in Room 109 on the first floor of the education building.

Faith Finders is our brand-new class for elementary kids in K-4th grade! We are so excited about this new opportunity for our children to play, learn, and worship together. We encourage your kids to come check out our new Faith Finders room setup and be part of our new large group/small group style of Sunday School. We’ll meet in Room 211, and we’ll spend the first part of class together each week for our opening activities and our large group Bible story and worship time. For the final 20 minutes, we’ll split into our younger elementary and older elementary small groups for some age appropriate closing activities. K-2nd grade students will be picked up from Room 211, and 3rd-4th grade students will be picked up from Room 110.

Connect is our class for 5th and 6th grade students. Our tweens love having a class of their own with a curriculum that is designed just for them. It challenges them to start making connections throughout God’s big story as they study the Bible, watch goofy videos, and make fun projects with their classmates and teachers. The Connect class meets in Room 213. 

Harding Ave. - Downstairs

The edges worship service is generally geared towards adults. We offer edges kids, a tailored worship opportunity for children from birth all the way to 6th grade! The mission of edges kids is to foster a sense of community among the children of edges while helping them develop and deepen their understanding of and relationship with God.

 

Children's Church

Church St. Campus - Room 108

Children's Church is offered for children in preschool through 1st grade following the Children's Message at 11am Convergence. Volunteers lead the children in an age-appropriate worship time including a Bible story and related activities. Preschoolers (3 years old by 9/30/18) through 1st graders meet in Room 108.

Preschool

Church St. Campus

BUMP offers a dynamic, high-quality, half day program for children between the ages of three and five years. Preschool is open from late August through late May with several attendance options from which to choose. We'd love to show you the school!

Vacation Bible School

Our annual Vacation Bible School is always a highlight of the summer! We spend a whole week learning and playing together, as we learn more about God through Bible stories, music, crafts, games, and recreation.

 

Special Events

The children enjoy a number of special events throughout the year.  Annual events have included seasonal celebrations at Christmas and Easter, a summer pool party, family fun in the fall, and fall and spring movie nights.
