SUNDAYS 8:30 & 11 AM


Children’s Worship Time is held during worship services each Sunday.  Each week the children focus on a particular verse from Scripture, share their joys and concerns, say The Lord’s Prayer together, and talk about ways faith can make a difference in their lives. After the “Time with Children,” children age 4 through first grade are invited to go to Room 203 in Andrews Hall (AH-203) for a time of age-appropriate worship. Children return to worship during the final hymn, or prior to Communion or Baptism if either is taking place.

CONNECT- Grades 5 & 6

Every lesson follows a three-part sequence: See, Explore, and Make. Each week, tweens focus on and reinforce a theme by watching a video that combines witty slap-stick humor with solid theology, exploring biblical text, and creating projects that range from games to art and more. We explore themes found throughout the Bible’s greatest stories and encourage preteens to see the narrative arc of the Bible—from Creation to New Creation, and encourage them to ask questions, make connections, and reflect. This year we focus on the Old Testament with Units such as Beginnings, which is a journey through Genesis from Creation to the Tower of Babel, The Promise, which continues in Genesis and focuses on stories such as the Covenant and Joseph. Freedom takes us to Exodus with stories including Moses, Commandments and Promised Land. Kings and Prophets will take us into spring where we will study stories such as David and Solomon's Templ

What? Our motto is food, fun, fellowship and faith! After a quick ice breaker, we jump into short lessons—MINIstries—that address an area of interest to our tweens through games, discussion, activities and art—any creative way to access scripture that is important to their understanding of the world.  We then enjoy dinner and dessert in the Celtic Cross Room, where we like to focus on a mission initiative or upcoming event. Then we run, quite literally, to the gym, where we finish with games such as Scatterball, Nine Square, Gaga, etc. and sometimes special contests. IT. IS. SO. MUCH. FUN.
