SUNDAY MORNINGS
 
We have four major children’s programs running throughout the year on Sunday morning: Kids Alive (K-5th grade), Kids Alive Preschool (ages 3 -5), the Nursery (birth-to age 3) and Kingdom Kids (age 4 -4th grade). All programs encourage our children to deepen their faith and relationship with God and to become passionately devoted followers of Christ.
 
KIDS ALIVE! – Kids Alive is an exciting, hands-on, fun-filled Children’s Sunday School adventure for kindergarten through grade 5.  We utilize the innovative “Workshop Rotation Model.”  We have developed a 5-year curriculum with 60 Biblical themed units.  Each unit lasts 4-5 weeks.  The various workshops are developed around the 4 modalities of learning:  visual (seeing), auditory (hearing), kinestetic (moving), and tactile (touching).
 
Children “rotate” to a different workshop each Sunday to participate in a unique and creative Bible learning experience.  The workshops include: video, storytelling, drama/puppetry, cooking, simple science, art, music, and computer.  Kids Alive takes place in the remodeled children’s wing on the 2nd floor.  The five rooms have been designed and decorated to enhance children’s learning experiences as they get to know people and places in the Bible.  Come visit us in Kids Alive and see all the great things that are happening!
 
KIDS ALIVE PRESCHOOL –Our new preschool program provides our 3-to 5-year-olds an opportunity to learn about God and the Bible through stories. Each week, the children make a craft that relates to the story they study, they practice praying when they have snack, and they sing simple songs about Jesus. This is a special time when the children learn to share and fellowship with classmates of the same age.
 
NURSERY—The nursery provides a loving environment for our infants up to 3-year-olds. The art projects, stories and activities support their themes, which are Jesus loves them, He is always with them, and God makes everything that is beautiful in their lives.  During Sunday worship, the nursery is open to all children 4 years old or younger. Even our preschoolers return to visit and spend time with old friends.
 
KINGDOM KIDS—Kingdom Kids is offered to children ages 4 through grade 4 during the worship service.  Children participate in “worship-related” activities plus enjoy a light snack.
