Our Youth Class (grades 6-12) meets at 9:45 on Sunday mornings during the school year and is currently studying a curriculum entitled re:form, which uses brief video lessons and an "anti-workbook."



Our elementary-aged kids have their own "mini-Church" during the second part of our 11:00 worship service. We use a curriculum called DeepBlue (, which incorporates Bible lessons, crafts, songs and other fun activities. Each Sunday, all elementary school kids (K-5) are invited to join us as we leave the Sanctuary after the children's sermon. (Our nursery is available year-round during the entire worship service for children 5 years and younger.)


For the grown-ups: We are always happy to have additional volunteers to help lead our Children's Church using a pre-planned, easy-to-use curriculum. Teachers will take turns on a rotating basis and NOT serve more than once a month. Please help with this amazing new way to reach our kids and make a real difference in their lives! Please speak with Pastor Rob or Jean Barrick to help.
