Located on the first floor is our nursery (0-2 years) and preschool (ages 3-4); elementary aged children are in the community room and the adjacent classroom. All classrooms are bright, welcoming, safe, and clean.
When you drop off your nursery age child, you will sign in and your child will get a name tag to wear and you will get a security pick-up tag that matches your child’s. Please let one of the volunteers know any special instructions for your child.
Sunday Morning Activities
God’s love is shared through stories, songs, crafts, videos, and games. Kids read the Bible story with their teacher and then talk about how to apply the story to their daily life.
All children are using The Gospel Project curriculum. This is a chronological organization of teaching the Bible. Each week everyone is learning the same Bible lesson, but at their learning level.
There is The Gospel Project for Kids app that allows kids to play games based on the week’s lesson and family activities. Click here for a preview of The Gospel Project for Kids.

Vacation Bible School
Each summer, your kids are invited to participate in the most exciting and interactive week! Through music, games, snacks, Bible study, and skits, children interact with the Bible and learn how to have a personal relationship with Christ.
Join us each week in our new Library (found on the same floor as our Nursery) for a 20-30 minute story time. This is a free fun-filled story program that includes music, movement, and entertainment for families with children ages 0-5 years old.
Often times we find kids struggling to find how to participate in worship services. We have developed a bag that helps kids interact, participate, and more fully understand worship. Grab one on your way in – there are bags at each entrance into the sanctuary.
Route 66 Parents Community Group Sundays 10:00 AM
This group is made up of parents of all ages who have various ages of kids. They study the same curriculum as our kids – The Gospel Project – so that they can have a deeper understanding of the Bible story and lesson their kids are learning.
Mom to Mom
Mom to Mom is a Biblically based parenting program designed around the Titus 2:4 concept of older women teaching and encouraging younger women in their relationships with their husbands and children. It includes quality instruction in parenting, small group discussion, and the interaction of more experienced mothers with younger moms. Designed to be both a place of nurture for committed Christian women and a “safe place” to bring community friends, it often becomes a bridge into the church.
