The Children’s Sunday School uses the Spark! Lectionary curriculum which follows stories in the Revised Common Lectionary. Throughout the 3-year cycle, each lesson comes from a Bible story in the Old Testament, the Gospels, or Acts.
The nursery is available for all children up to 4 years old during Sunday School time. Stephanie and Greg follow the same Spark! curriculum as our school-age kids, tailored especially for infants and toddlers. For kids 4 years old through 2nd grade, Spark! leads us through the lectionary year with our colorful and easy to understand story Bibles and activities. Our 3rd-5th graders take it a step further, with the Spark! Bible, where we activate our faith through thoughtful but kid-friendly activities and discussions.

Children’s Chapel is held Sundays from 10:30-11 a.m. The children join their families in “big church” during the offertory time. Our Children’s Chapel curriculum is called Holy Moly! This creative and fun program teaches through these important ways: Discover – Each Holy Moly lesson starts with an animated Bible story retelling and an activity to jump start kids’ imaginations about what they’ll see and do! Relate – Next, kids talk about the story they just watched. Kids relate to the Bible story and each other. They discuss what surprised them & what made them wonder! Connect – Then, through the pages of the Holy Moly Bible Storybook, kids listen to the story again as a way to ground the lesson in scripture. Create – Finally, creativity flows as kids complete activities that reinforce the lessons they watch in the Bible story retelling.
