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.
The Nursery is open for all services, Wednesday night activities, programs, and classes, Sunday School, and morning Bible studies. The Nursery opens 15 minutes prior to scheduled events and stays open 15 minutes after scheduled ending time unless otherwise noted.

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.
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
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.
Wednesday night choirs: Pre-k—1st grade
Wednesdays (starting August 24), 6:15-7:30pm
On Wednesday nights, children will 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.
Wednesday night choir offerings for our early childhood age groups include the Cherub Choir (for Pre-K and JK children who have turned 3 by January 1, 2022) and the Music Makers (for Senior Kindergarteners and 1st graders).
