Kids ages 3 to 10 join their families for the beginning of the service. After the singing, they are dismissed for their own liturgy. We use a Montessori curriculum called "Young Children and Worship" that introduces children to the story of the bible through storytelling, inductive learning, and craft-making.
Nursery is provided for kids 6 months to age 3. Our nursery is in not only a safe and fun environment for kids to play in, it is also a place where they hear the bible story of the day and then craft in response.
For Middle School and High School aged kids, we have Youth Mentors who lead a youth-oriented, bible-based discussion during the sermon.
