Visiting with Children

We welcome children! They are an important part of our worshipping community. All children are welcome to stay through the entire worship service and for fellowship time after the service.

Nursery Care is provided for children during the morning and evening services. The nursery is located on the lower (basement) level.

Children ages 3 to first grade begin the service sitting with their families and leave during the children’s blessing.

  • Beginners (3 & 4 year olds) meet for Church School for a story, singing and craft during the worship service. Children are to be picked up at the conclusion of the morning service.
  • Children and Worship: Kindergarteners and First Graders are invited to worship in the Children and Worship Center, a “special place to be with God”. Here they worship in an age-appropriate way, through prayer, singing, and Bible stories. They wonder together about, respond to, and then work with the Bible stories. Children are dismissed at 12:10 pm.

Church School for 2nd – 8th grade: Church School provides children instruction in the Bible and Christian faith following the worship service until 12:10 pm.

Catechism students in Grades 9 – 11 learn about the reformed tradition and the doctrines of the Christian Reformed Church.
