Welcome to Critterland!

We are located on the 2nd floor of the church down the hall from the Worship Center.  We have a check- in room to register your children, and then there are classrooms for each age group, birth to 5 years old.

Nursery - 0-17 months (CL 1) - Babies are given endless care and love while playing with age appropriate toys.  Most volunteers in the nursery have been working with our congregation's children for 10-25 years.

2 Year Olds - 18 months to 35 months (CL 2) - Miss Maia and her team teach the Bible stories through short games and crafts.  They enjoy snack time as well as socialization with those who are their own age.

3-5 Year Olds (CL 7) - 3 to 5 years old enjoy more immersion into the Bible through crafts, games, and Bible stories.  Children also get "free play" time to help get out those Sunday morning wiggles.

All children ages18 months through 5 years attend "Jesus in the Park" during our 11:00 am worship time.  Our Ministry Team has developed a program of worship, skits, and lessons to teach the theme and story of the week.  Sunday School is at 9:30 am and involves reading the Bible story of the week as well as a craft and songs to reinforce the theme and story.

Welcome to Uptown!!

In Uptown every child in Kindergarten-6th grade grows! Uptown is located off the lower foyer in the rear entrance. Once you check in your child with our friendly greeting team he/she will be introduced to another leader, begin making new friends, and fellowship through games before heading to the main worship time at 11:00 AM. During the main worship time we start with upbeat familiar worship songs, followed by Bible dramas, and games. Each worship time concludes with the children returning to their small groups for more fun and fellowship.

If your child enters Uptown at 9:30 AM, they will join a group of gender and age specific children while we focus on building relationships with our leaders and new friends. These groups include K-1st grade boys, K-1st grade girls, 2nd-3rd grade boys, 2nd-3rd grade girls, and Stretch 456 (see below information). During Sunday School time, each group has hands-on activities, prayer, bible memorization, and life application from the main teaching time at 11:00.  Again the focus is relationships, so sometimes the time for getting to know one another through fun or prayer takes top priority. Each small group is led by a main teacher and at least one high school assistant.

Preteen (4th-6th grade) students grow together in Stretch 456 on Sundays at 9:30 AM through an engaging, interactive experience designed just for them. The focus of Stretch 456 is "leading preteens to trust God with the next step" (Proverbs 3:5-6). Each preteen also takes an integral role in Uptown by serving at least one Sunday each month as a sound tech, doughnut deliverer, greeter, or bathroom monitor.  Stretch 456 is led by Matt and Terah Lee.  Beyond Sunday mornings the Stretch 456 crew enjoys fellowship events at least 4 times each year that include Guys and Gals Weekend, SuperStart!, Winter Lock-in, and Graduation!

Middle School

Every Sunday morning we will meet in the middle school room for our Sunday school hour at 9:30 am.  In Middle School, students need to make their faith their own, coming face to face with peers and engaging with the Bible and their lives in meaningful ways.  That happens every Sunday morning.  During the school year we will have a worship night called “The Buzz” every Wednesday evening from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.  This will be a high energy service and a great time to invite friends.  Make sure to ask about the special summer events.

High School

Every Sunday morning we will meet in the youth room for our Sunday school hour at 9:30 am. We have an amazing group of adults who lead these groups, and for students looking into who they are and what God has for them, these groups will become the most important group of peers they have growing up.  The high school community meets every Sunday evening from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.  It is a time to eat, worship, learn, and a great time to invite friends.  Make sure to ask about the summer schedule!
