Children’s Sunday School
Our Children’s Sunday School began its new year on Sunday, August 9, 2015, with a back-to-school blessing at 9:30 am, and new classes and curriculum for ages 2-6th grade. Signs indicating where each class meets are posted on campus.
All children, K-6th, began in worship at 9:30 am this Sunday only. They received a back-to-school blessing before they were escorted to their classes. Preschoolers always start and end in their classes. Please check signage around campus to confirm these rooms/classes:
2-year-olds = E8
3-year-olds = E7
4s & 5s = E4
Kinder = E 12/13
1st & 2nd Grades = E10/11
3rd & 4th Grades = H4
5th & 6th Grades = H6
On Sunday, August 16, the 3rd and 4th graders participated in our annual Bible Blast event.
Godly Play during Ignite at 11:15 am
Sunday, September 13, we kicked off the Godly Play program, with a multi-age class for children as young as preschool age through sixth grade. The children start in worship and go with the leaders after the singing at Ignite, our 11:15 am alternative service in the chapel. They’ll be led back to the chapel to finish worship with you.

Children’s Music and Modern Family
Along with Sunday School, Mini-Singers began August 9, 2015 with Shari Paris. Children go to E9 directly from Sunday School, and must be picked up in E9 at 11 am. Mini Singers is for all 3-year-olds to kindergartners, 10:30-11 am, E9.
The NEW Children’s “Praise Singers” program starts August 16 for all 1st-6th graders. All 1st-6th grade children are escorted from their classes to H1; parents pick them up at 10:45 am at this same location. We hope to instill a love of music in our children as they learn and sing new and familiar songs each week with their peers as a part of Sunday School. Pick up is at 10:45 am in H1.
September 13, 20 and 27, we invite parents of small children to join the Modern Family group for “Parenting the Love and Logic Way” with Rev. Andrea Andress. The first class meets on the ground floor of the H building, in H7. Thereafter, they may move to H5. Questions? Contact Pastor Andrea. Ask about childcare for your children while this class meets from 10:40-11:30 am.
Music Makers for 1st-6th graders began on Wednesday, August 19. This is our free, weekly afterschool program that meets 4:30-5:30 pm and includes singing and ringing (bells and other instruments). Bonnie Greey, our new children’s music director, leads both the Praise Singers and Music Makers. Bring a friend!
