Age-Appropriate Environments

Early Childhood Area

Nursery (ages infants — twenty-four months) —- Our Nursery is well staffed and prepared with age-appropriate toys and activities for your child to enjoy while you are in worship.  Our team is well equipped and ready to meet the individual needs of your infant.  As we hold and play with your child, we pray for them to know God and that He would make the difference throughout their life.

Mother’s Room —-This area is specially designed for mothers with infants to enjoy our services in a private environment where you can change, feed, and care for your child.  Our services are streamed live in the room for your convenience. Our greeters or ushers will be happy to direct you to the Mother’s Room.

Toddlers (ages two and three)  —- Our Toddlers will learn the Bible through age-appropriate stories,  games and hands on activities that all help to reinforce our monthly Bible truths.  Children will also have time for play to provide an opportunity to build relationships with friends and their leaders.

Preschool (ages four — Kindergarten) —- In our Preschool environment, kids will also learn the Bible through age-appropriate stories, praise and worship, games and hands on activities that all help to reinforce our monthly Bible truths.  We want our preschoolers to leave Kindergarten knowing that God made them, that God loves them, and that He wants to be their friend forever.

Special Note: Toddlers and Preschoolers are currently combined during our 9am Sunday Morning Worship Experience and during our Midweek Wednesday night services at 7pm.


Elementary Area

Kids Church (First — Sixth Grade)  —- Our services are designed to present the love of Jesus to elementary kids in a way that is exciting and makes sense to them. Every week they get to play games, experience dynamic praise and worship, work on a Bible memory verse, learn an interesting object lesson, and receive prayer and make friends in Connect Small Groups.  On Sundays during the 9am and the 11am services, kids will experience both a Large Group time and a Connect Small Group time to reinforce what they have learned.  During our Sunday 11am worship experience, 6th graders join the 7th and 8th graders for our Middle School Connect Group for their lesson after our time of worship in Large Group.

Midweek Connect Groups (First — Fourth Grade) —- Kids are invited back on Wednesday nights at 7pm for our Midweek Connect Groups.  Each week they will get to engage in the Bible through games, activities, and hands on lessons.  We have a Connect Group for 1st and 2nd graders and one for 3rd and 4th Graders.

Shift 56(Fifth and Sixth Grade) —-  The preteen years are some of the most vital years of a child’s life and in shaping their faith.  To make these transition years easier, we provide a Preteen Connect Group on Wednesday nights at 7pm.  Preteens will dive into God’s Word on their level through engaging teaching and activities.  There will also be a time of small group discussion for them to begin to share and process how to live out their faith.  Shift 56 has many activities throughout the year to help them build healthy relationships with friends and leaders.
