We have four children’s Sunday school classes. The classes meet during our worship service from 12:00pm to 1:30pm. From 11:30 a.m. to 12 noon, the teachers and children get to participate in the Adult praise and worship session.
The first Sunday of every month (Thanksgiving Sunday), the children are part of the Adult service. Other than the first Sunday, children spend the entire meeting in their children’s work.
Registration on a Sunday
Registering your child on a Sunday is simple. As this is a small church, if you are a known member, you would already be grandfathered into the system. However, if you are new there will be a form for you to fill in, with your contact details should the team need them, as well as your child’s details. You will be given a card to take when you leave your child which you bring back at the end when you collect your child. No one can collect the children without this card.
The four groups are:
Toddler – 0 to 3 years
A drop-in facility, allowing parents with the ability to stay with their child. For the little ones, there are toys, mats and play gyms. There are also cots, a changing area and high chairs. Children over 6 months are recommended to be left with the children teachers. Free refreshments are provided for children.
Preschoolers – 3 to 6 years
A safe environment where parents can leave their young children in the care of the team. The children have their own worship experience, which may include a combination of singing, percussion instruments, a Bible story and prayer. There is also an opportunity for children to learn by discussion via Question/Answer sessions.
This is program includes structured activities appropriate for this age group including craft and take home assignments.
Pre-Adolescents – 7 to 12 years
The children are placed in age related Connect Groups for discussion and prayer. This is a secure friendly place for children to discover more about their relationship with God and develop friendships. Each week there is a magazine to take home for further activities for the child to do on their own. A free refreshment will also be provided at some point throughout the morning.
Groups for teenagers
Adolescents – 13 to 19 years
