CHECK IN: Check in for Children's Church is at 10 am in the Fellowship Hall before church starts on Sunday mornings. Then your child will go with you into the sanctuary.
DISMISSAL: Your child will worship with you during the first song. Then, during the announcements, your child will be dismissed to Children’s Worship and Sunday School. Our volunteers will meet them in the back of the sanctuary and will walk with them to the chapel. Don’t worry! If you forgot to check your child in, our volunteers can help you check in during the announcements!
WORSHIP: Your child will have a super special, age appropriate worship experience in the chapel led by a team of our volunteers!
EDUCATION: After your children have 20 minutes of worship (just like their mom and/or dad!), they will be separated into classes where they will learn about Bible stories and how dearly God loves them in exciting, energetic, and age-appropriate ways.
DISMISSAL: Your child will then be brought to the chapel where they will hang out with their friends and our amazing volunteers until you come pick them up! Please come pick your child up as soon as church is dismissed. After you do, you can go chat with your friends and enjoy a cup of coffee!
Focus Verse: For to all those who have, more will be given, but from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away.
Focus Hymn: Let us build a house where all are named, their songs and visions heard and loved and treasured, taught and claimed as words within the Word. Built of tears and cries and laughter, prayers of faith and songs of grace, let this house proclaim from floor to rafter. All are welcome! All are welcome! All are welcome in this place!
Human Need: Many are like the servant with one talent: fearful, pessimistic, and not trusting God. We want to be free from fear.
Community Challenge: Jesus encourages us to take the gifts we have been given and use them in freedom rather than fear. It is in risk, not safety; in faith, not fear, that we really see God’s graciousness.
Personal Response: Encouragement to experience God’s grace and freedom by boldly risking the use of our gifts in faith.
