We believe children can learn and experience God's love at all stages of their life. That's why we offer Sunday School classes for infants on up to 12th grade. We have many dedicated Sunday School teachers who have a heart for children. It is our goal to teach your child God's Word, apply it to their lives, encourage them to look up and memorize scripture, and connect with other people of the church of all ages.

First Family Dinner
First Family Dinner is our Wednesday night church-wide fellowship and discipleship event for all ages. We gather for dinner at 5:30 p.m. in the Heritage Room. We have a short worship time, then we split into the following groups:
Children's Bible Study
Children's Bible Study is for all children in the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade. It is held every Wednesday during the school year and lasts from 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. in Room E202. Bring your Bible. Friends are welcome to come!
Wednesday Night Bible Club
The Wednesday Night Bible Club is for children in Kindergarten - 3rd Grade. It will give the children a fun, hands-on way of experiencing Bible stories. It is held every Wednesday during the school year and lasts from 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. in Room E213.
The Sprouts are our smallest disciples that are 4 years old and under. Besides play time, they will have a Bible story and activity. It is held every Wednesday during the school year and lasts from 6:30 p.m.- 7:30 p.m. in Room E212.
Confirmation is the year-long process for 6th graders to become members of the church. On Confirmation Sunday, our Confirmands make their formal commitment to Christ. Confirmands learn about church history, the basics of Christianity, and the history of Methodism. They also visit other denominations and do service projects. Confirmation meets at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings in Room E212.

Pray & Play
Pray & Play is our monthly program for children age 1 - 4 years old. We play in the gym or on the playground, have crafts, snacks, and a Bible story. Parents must stay. Pray & Play is usually the second Saturday of the month from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
Children in Worship
We want children in worship! From infant on up, children are welcome in our worship services. Children learn to worship by watching their parents and grandparents. We understand that children may fidget and make noise from time to time. We know adults that do that too! We have a children's sermon at each service except on Communion Sunday. Worship activity books are available at each service.
Children's Worship Festival
The Children’s Worship Festival is a service entirely geared towards children. The date for CWF is September 17th at 11:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Dress comfortably and bring a friend! Children are invited to sit on the floor in the front of the sanctuary. This year's theme is REFUEL. We will be teaching the children how important it is to stay plugged in to God.
Through baptism we are initiated into the Body of Christ. Our primary means of baptism is through sprinkling; however, we both recognize and offer any form of baptism a parent desires for their child. If you are interested in having your child baptized, contact Pastor Rick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
