This Week’s Preschool & K-5 Lesson

Babies & Toddlers

We want even the littlest ones to experience God’s love. We offer staffed infant and toddler rooms at each Sunday worship service where children are cared for in a safe and loving environment. Our rooms include age appropriate toys with a low teacher to child ratio, and a Bible story program for toddlers.


The world of a preschooler is filled with wonder and excitement as they experience things for the first time.  We want preschoolers to experience God and the most basic truths of His word. We offer a great curriculum with Bible story, crafts and hands on activities to bring God’s word alive to our preschoolers.

Elementary (K-5th)

This month is about Forgiveness, deciding that someone who has wronged you doesn’t have to pay. No matter how much we mess up, God will always forgive us. With God’s help, we can forgive others freeing ourselves from anger and bitterness, while giving the other person an opportunity to rewrite the story. A great life lesson for our children!

Awana (4yrs-5th)

Awana is a Bible club for children ages 4 through 5th grade, focused on scripture memorization. Our proven and adaptable curriculum will develop kids as leaders, to walk with Christ through life. Register for the 2022/23 year here.

Upward Basketball & Cheerleading

Upward Sports are designed to build athletic skills, character, confidence, and spirit. Registration is over for the 2023 Spring Season. Please come back in September to sign up for next year!


Vacation Bible School for 2023 will take place June 19 -22nd. Registration will begin in April, 2023. Click to email Minister of Children Betsy Keefe.
