Sunday School & Faith Groups
Small groups meet to deepen their understanding of scripture, develop friendships, and grow a closer relationship with God. Group meetings are held at 9:30 a.m. on Sundays, times throughout the week during the year. Available for children, youth and adults.
Worship and Wonder
Two adults each week provide this program for children ages 3-10, during the Sunday worship hour. The children hear and experience stories of the Bible in ways that remains in their minds and hearts. This is a Montessori-based program, and all leaders have been taught to use the Montessori method. Special wooden toys are used to explain scripture stories, and the time includes singing, games, crafts, prayer and teaching. The children love this program, and their leaders!
Two dedicated child care attendants are available each Sunday morning to care for our little ones (infants - age 2) in the church nursery, which is located just inside the Bryan Road entrance. There is a TV in the sanctuary sound booth for parents to view their child(ren) as they learn and play.
Our worship service blends contemporary praise and worship songs with the traditional hymns of the church. The small Praise Team and instrumentalists rehearse weekly to lead our Sunday worship.
