Children's Worship

GO! – for 11am and Spark services

GO! is a great program that exposes my children to Christian values and education in a fun and creative way. They get excited and want to attend church because of GO!, and that is so great to see!
— Sara Benner (children grades K, 2, and 5)

Your children will experience worship through dramas, storytelling, and group competitions—plus prayer, reflection, meditation, and live music. We will even provide you with take-home resources in order to continue the Bible lesson throughout the week. Please drop your children off at the Chapel prior to the beginning of the service you are attending, and pick them up there following worship. All children who would like to participate must be at the Chapel by 11:15am. 

Children of all ages are welcome to stay during all worship services. Interactive worship bags for children ages 3–12 are available at the entrances to the Sanctuary and Fellowship Center. We also have the following options available:

During the 8:30am traditional and 9am Awakening services:

  • A Nursery is provided for infants through preschoolers in Rooms 111 and 113, and is staffed with trained, professional childcare workers and parent volunteers.

During the Sunday school hour (9:50am-10:50am): 

 

  • Children ages 2 and up attend Sunday school in the class rooms in the preschool hall.
  • Infants and toddlers attend Sunday school in Rooms 111 and 113. United Methodist Cokesbury curriculum for babies and toddlers is used to introduce God's love to our youngest children.
