Children’s Sunday school classes each Sunday, of the school year, during the 10am service. Children are grouped by age (preschool, kg -2nd grade and 3rd-5th). In addition nursery is available for infants and toddlers.

Children should meet in their classrooms before service begins. They will then be taken into church for a brief kids sermon followed by music. After that they will return to their room for a short lesson and craft/ coloring page/ activity.

Children are encouraged to bring a canned food donation on the first Sunday of each month for Dignity Food Pantry at discovery. They are also encouraged to bring a small monetary tithe the other weeks. This helps to teach our children how to help others.

During the year there are also opportunities for special events such as singing during regular Sunday service, annual Easter egg hunt, and participation in the annual living nativity.
