Children's Ministry

Our nursery offers a loving, nurturing, Christ-centered environment for newborns to four-year-old children. It is a place where little ones can learn social skills, improve their motor skills, improve problem solving, and critical thinking skills through play and activity. Our nursery is available during worship, Sunday school, and our "Wednesday Nite Git Togethers."

Children's Church

Children’s Church is held in a classroom every Sunday morning during the sermon time. It is designed for children older than nursery age, but too young to sit through and understand the sermon (usually four-years through fourth grade). Class begins by praying the Lord’s Prayer together and then we share highlights of our week. This is followed by a short Bible story or lesson and, as time allows, activity or outside play.

Sunday School

We have Sunday school classes each Sunday at 9:00 am.

Presby Kids

Presby Kids are first through fifth graders who meet during our “Wednesday Nite Git Togethers.” The children do a variety of Scripture lessons, crafts, and games. This group does a service project each year, has special movie days, and goes on outings to local attractions like a local llama farm.
