NURSERY

(BIRTH – 23 MONTHS)

Our nursery is staffed with warm, caring and nurturing volunteers who would love nothing more than to love on your little ones. Our hope is for you to be able to enjoy a distraction-free time of worship while your baby is cared for in a safe and stimulating environment. If your baby is having a difficult time, we utilize a parent call system to alert you that you are needed.

EXPLORERS

(AGES 2-3)

Our toddler class is energetic, inviting and designed to help our young explorers feel safe and comfortable in a new environment.

We are so excited for the opportunity to guide our toddlers in their first glimpse of God; helping them as they begin to understand who He is and how much He loves them. Explorers engage in age appropriate Bible-based lessons, games and activities with the purpose of introducing them to God and demonstrating His love for them.

 

TRAILBLAZERS

(AGES 4 – KINDERGARTEN)

Our preschool area is an engaging, fun place where children have an opportunity to get to know Jesus. Children experience a safe, nurturing environment where committed teachers and volunteers show them the love of Jesus Christ. Trailblazers learn Bible stories, participate in praise/worship time, and do fun activities all geared towards helping them gain an understanding that God loves them and wants to be their best friend.

 

DISCOVERY ZONE

(1ST & 2ND GRADE)

In Genesis Kids’ ministry we focus on three main truths from Luke 2:52.

  • I need to make the wise choice. (wisdom)
  • I can trust God no matter what. (faith)
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated. (friendship)

Each month we focus on a different attribute or character trait of God with an entertaining theme. We look at how God displays this virtue and learn what it looks like to live that out in our everyday life.

Our elementary students begin each Sunday in The Gathering with their families for a time of worship. Children are dismissed to the Flex Room for our large group video-based lesson followed by small group time where kids participate in a variety of different games, activities, object lessons to help them further understand God’s truth.

1st and 2nd graders can be picked up after The Gathering in the youth room located near the bathrooms.
