Sunday Morning Activities

  • Children ages 0 - 2 play and enjoy time with one another while learning simple Biblical lessons in the Nursery. Childcare for children in this age group begins at 9:45 a.m. and runs through Worship. Sunday school begins at 11:15 a.m. and ends at noon. Marnelise van der Walt takes charge of this class.
  • Preschool children are taught various "Gospel Light" lessons by David Cook 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. Children in this age group are welcome to come for childcare from 9:45 a.m. - 11:15 a.m. Sunday school begins at 11:15 a.m. and ends at noon.
  • The K-5th grade class meets in the 4 & 5 year old classroom and is run by Holly Finnarn. Childcare for children in this age group begins at 9:45 a.m. and runs through Worship. Sunday school begins at 11:15 a.m. and ends at noon. Using "One Room Sunday School" curriculum, this class learns simple, influential Biblical lessons.
  • Note: Childcare and Sunday school for these classes may be combined into one class if the number of kids in attendance is low. All kids will be in the 2 & 3 year old classroom on the main floor when this is the case.

    Midweek Activities

  • LOGOS, meaning “the word,” is our free children’s program for children age 2 through 5th grade. It will run every Wednesday through April 4, 2018. 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.
