Sunday Morning Activities

  • Children ages 0 - 2 play and enjoy time with one another while learning simple Biblical lessons in the Nursery. This class begins at 9:30 a.m., runs through Worship, and ends at 11:30 a.m. Marnelise van der Walt takes charge of this class. *If there are only one or two babies in this class, we often join the Preschool-aged children in the room next door. Parents are asked to pick up their children prior to going to Coffee Hour.
  • Preschool children are taught various lessons during their time in Sunday School. Ginny Bertram leads the way for our youngest students in the "2 & 3 year olds" classroom on the main floor. This class begins at 9:30 a.m., runs through Worship, and ends at 11:30 a.m.
  • The K-5th grade class meets in the classrooms behind the balcony area upstairs at 9:30 a.m. This class is run by Holly Finnarn and Margaret Hayes. If attendance is large enough, this class may separate into two smaller classes.
  • Midweek Activities

  • LOGOS, meaning “the word,” is our free children’s program for children age 2 through 5th grade. It will be starting on Wednesday, September 14, 2016 and will run every Wednesday through April 5, 2017. Hours for the program are from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. Kids have fun with music, games, sound biblical teaching, and a family meal. All four parts of our LOGOS program (Bible Study, Recreation, Family Time, and Worship) work together to nurture our kids into the right relationship with God and others. Let us follow God's commandment in Mark 10:14 - "Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children."
  • For more information on the LOGOS program, please call Marnelise van der Walt at 937-548-3188.
