Nursery

The Nursery is open for all services, MidWeek program classes, Sunday School, and morning Bible studies. Our mission is to be a safe place where every child and parent sees the love of God in the people who care for them, causing all to have a greater desire to know Him and serve in His church.

Connect

Connect is a great way for 2nd–5th graders to connect with our church, each other, awesome leaders, and to God's Word through music, games, and Bible lessons! We meet on Wednesdays, 6:15-7:30pm, in the Youth lobby.

Worship

We love for kids to join us in corporate worship. We have a time during the service where kids can come down front for a children's sermon. Families can take their younger ones to the nursery after this part of the service.

Shine

All children are a gift from the Lord, “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). Our SHINE special needs ministry is designed to share the good news of Christ’s love with those who may have unique learning or physical challenges.

Children’s Choirs

On Wednesday nights, children have the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of Christ's love for them through music by learning great hymns of the faith, memorizing scripture, recognizing music symbols and notes, and playing musical instruments.

Sunday School

On Sunday mornings, our children are encouraged to participate in Sunday School between services, at 9:45am. This is a wonderful opportunity for children to grow in their knowledge of who God is and who He created them to be. For a full list of classes and locations, see below.
God calls parents to be the primary vision-casters for their children by making Him the center of family life. 
The church as a whole shares in the awesome responsibility of instructing our children.
One way we do that is by providing resources for families.

Early Childhood

It’s never too early to introduce your child to the love of Jesus. Long before they can write their names or recite the alphabet, these little ones can take their first steps in a lifelong journey of faith. The preschool ministry is reflective of our desire to join with you, their parents and church family, to ignite their desire for the Lord. 

Catechism

One of the ways we teach our preschool children about the love of Jesus is by learning the catechism together. You can join us in this endeavor by encouraging your children to practice them at home!

Preschool Catechism Questions


choir

Another way we teach our preschool children about the love of Jesus is by singing his praises! See below for choir age groups and times. Email Christy Young with questions.

Special Needs

Our mission is to be a safe place where every child and parent sees the love of God in the people who care for them, causing all to have a greater desire to know Him and serve in His church.

Shine

All children are a gift from the Lord, “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). Second's Shine Ministry strives to effectively communicate the gospel to individuals with physical and intellectual disabilities and to eliminate barriers that prevent their families from living in community with the body of Christ.

Our Shine Sunday School class meets in N101 during the 9:45am Sunday School hour and 11:00am church hour. All ages and disabilities are welcome!

We also offer a Shine Shadow program, which provides the opportunity for students with special needs to remain with their peers in appropriate grade levels while supporting Biblical differentiated learning.

For more information about our Shine ministry or to volunteer, please contact Audrey Hamm.
