KidLife Sundays

Sundays, 9:20–10:40am and 10:50am–12:15pm
Grades 1-5 in Room 112, ages 3 years-K in Room 101
Check-in located in the Fellowship Hall (Room 100)
 
KidLife Sundays meets during the 9:30 and 11:00am services. KidLife times will be 9:20–10:40 and 10:50–12:15 (at the latest). These times reflect the time parents can drop off and pick up kids, not the actual service times. We are allowing a longer time for parents to fellowship after the service. This in turn gives us more lesson time. Each week, kids from 3 years–5th grade will all be learning the same Bible story, each at their own level. This helps focus and enhance learning and enables the whole family to talk about the lesson together.
 
The KidLife check-in station will be located in the Fellowship Hall. All kids need to be checked in prior to the start of service, even if they will be joining you for worship in the Sanctuary. Kids who worship with parents will be dismissed after the second song.
 
 
 
 
 

KidLife Nursery

Room 241 during worship services
6 weeks–3 years
 
The nursery is located above the gym in room 241. From the back of the sanctuary, exit through the double doors and walk straight ahead to a second set of double doors. The nursery is through these doors and to the left. Our nursery volunteers are required to have a background check before they are allowed to serve in the nursery. We want to be sure we are providing the safest care possible for your child! Parents of children who use the nursery are encouraged to be added to the volunteer schedule. Please contact Beth Jennings to volunteer.
 
 
 
 
 

Family Service Sundays

Worship together as a family!
 
A few times a year, kids in grades 1–5 will attend the service with their parents. KidLife will not be available. For kids staying in the service, children’s bulletins are available on the bulletin stand along with clipboards and crayons. The nursery will still be available! If you have a child kindergarten and younger who would rather not sit through the service they are welcome to come to nursery for a story and activity. The parent/infant room at the back of the sanctuary is also always open for use.
 
 

KidLife Club

There are many special events throughout the year, culminating with the Derby Car Race – a favorite! Guests are welcome any time.
