The Mission children’s ministry serves children up to 5th grade and is available at the 8AM and 10AM Sunday morning services. One of our greeters will be happy to assist you if you need help locating the kid’s area. Sunday school is available starting 15 minutes before the service begins.

“Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up” (Deuteronomy 6: 4,7).

“ Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6)

God commands us to teach and train our children in His ways, so we consider it our calling to teach children God’s word and lay a solid foundation for Jesus during the formative years. We aim to provide each child an age-appropriate biblical lesson, engage in a time of worship through song, make creative crafts, and have fun!

Nursery
Ages 0 to 18 months. Our volunteers will care for, pray for, and entertain your child while you enjoy the church service. Snacks and water are provided, but please supply your own additional baby care items and inform The Mission volunteers of any special instructions.

Toddlers
Ages 18 to 36 months old. As you probably know, children at this age are full of energy and curiosity, so our classroom provides a fun environment for them to play and discover God’s love. Kids will engage in a time of singing and movement, learning God’s word, and making simple crafts. Snacks and water are provided, but please supply any additional personal care items.

Preschool
Ages 3 to pre-kindergarten. Kids will have a fun environment where they get to play and discover God’s love through worship, bible lessons and craft time. Snacks and water a provided, but please supply any additional personal care items.

Kindergarten thru 5th grade
Children will connect with The Mission volunteers and with other kids their age. They’ll also spend time praising Jesus in song, Bible lesson that applies to their lives, making crafts, and having fun! Our desire for kids at this age is that they would have a deeply- rooted understanding of the Bible and a personal relationship with God.

Classes are broken up into the following:

Whales: Kindergarten and 1st grade

Hammerheads: 2nd and 3rd grade

Stingrays: 4th and 5th grade

The kids will rotate through three different classrooms: Crafts, Memory Verse and Bible Story.

Lifeguards
We have volunteers who patrol the area around our Sunday school, watching the rotations and helping out where and when needed.

Signing your Child In
It is very important that you sign your child in and out from their classrooms!
