Sunday Morning Programs

Join us for worship on Sundays! We have two services at 9:15am and 11am. Our 9:15am Service offers programs for Infants-5th Grade. Our 11am Service has programs for Preschool-5th Grade. We also have our middle school group, Outlet, at the 11am service. During our time together kids get to experience the stories of the Bible hands on through games, stories, music, and response activities that help them encounter God and get connected in our community. Kids are also always welcome in the service with their parents and the Nursery is open for families to use at the 11am service.


Nursery care for Infants-Two Years is available at the 9:15am service only. Our littlest ones experience the love of Jesus through the care and attention of our nursery ministry team. We strive to nurture the youngest among us in a safe, warm environment – a place that communicates God’s love through joyful interaction, gentle patience, and encouraging words.

Preschool kids explore the Bible through stories which depict God’s love and instruction. They gain skill and confidence through interactive play and crafts. Age appropriate activities are designed to promote listening skills and cooperation, while high value is placed on the fun factor of learning and interacting with friends. Each week is full of objects for kids to touch, wild and wiggly activities to get them moving, crafts they will love and real life situations they can relate to.

Elementary kids experience opening activities that begin their Sunday morning with interaction and creativity in a fun, inclusive environment. Young readers begin to gain skills in navigating God’s word and continue to explore the great stories and characters of the Bible. Children begin to explore more personal application from these lessons, and work to commit scripture to memory.

Buddy Break

Buddy Break is a free kids/respite program where children with special needs (VIP kids) make new friends, play fun games, enjoy crafts, therapy dogs, stories, music activities, and more! Siblings have fun too! Meanwhile, their caregivers get a break from their ongoing care-giving responsibilities for three hours. Buddy Break is open to church members and non-church members with VIP kids. Each VIP kid is paired one-on-one with a screened volunteer “Buddy” to participate in that day’s activities. For more information on serving as Buddy or participating as a VIP family contact Lynette, . To find more information on Buddy Break go to Nathaniel's Hope.
