Wednesday Nights

 

K – 3rd Grade

K – 3rd grade students are dropped off in their classrooms. Once service starts, our night consists of praise and worship in the gym, lesson time in the classroom, games for boys in the gym, and craft time for the girls. All children should be picked up in their classroom when service is done.

 

 

4th & 5th Grade

4th & 5th grade students are dropped off in the Zone. Once service starts, our night consists of time to hang out and play, lesson time, and worship. Students can check themselves out or wait for their parents when service is done.

 

Sunday Morning

 

Kindergarten

Kindergarten students are checked into their classrooms to engage in fun, Bible-based activities where they have praise and worship and then a lesson. All Kindergarteners should be picked up in their classroom when service is done. Sometimes Kindergartners join the 1st through 3rd graders but are checked in and out of their classrooms during these special occasions.

 

 

1st – 3rd Grade

1st – 3rd grader students are checked into the gym for a power-packed service filled with exciting, age-appropriate Bible teaching. They learn God’s Word through stories, drama, creative object lessons, and characters. For the last 15 minutes we move to our classrooms for small group questions, answers, and prayer. All children should be picked up in their classroom when service is done.

 

 

4th & 5th Grade

4th & 5th grade students meet in the Zone for an age-appropriate service of their own. After service students can take a break, hang out with friends, or purchase goodies from the snack bar. Students can check themselves out or wait for their parents when service is done.
