What You Want to Know:
Our Sunday morning program looks like this:
8 AM & 10:30 AM: During each of the morning worship experiences, your children will have the opportunity to begin worship with our whole community in the Ministry Center. At an appropriate time in each service, Dr. Scraper will offer an opportunity for any of our children to meet a friendly staff member from our Children’s Ministry Team, who will escort them into the Legacy Education Wing for an age-appropriate lesson based on Dr. Scraper’s lesson for that day.
9:15 AM: This is our Sunday School hour! Led by a caring and well qualified Team of staff and volunteers, your children will have the chance to grow in their faith, interact with the scriptures, and build positive relationships in a fun and healthy way!
Our Sunday evening program looks like this:
3-5 PM: This program is specifically designed for 5th and 6th grade students. We follow a confirmation curriculum, designed to prepare students for confirmation into the United Methodist Church at the end of their 6th grade year. The program is designed to resemble our youth ministry, but tailored specifically for slightly younger students. They’ll have a blast, learn a lot, and build great friendships!
Our Wednesday evening program looks like this:
The Gathering on Wednesday evenings has something for everyone! Dinner is available for the entire family in the Ministry Center at 5:30. By 6:30, make sure that your children are checked in at the Children’s Ministry reception desk in the Christian Education building. They will spend the evening in our Legacy Education Wing learning about their faith through a fun and silly curriculum that will keep them active for the entire evening! By 7:45, they’ll be ready to be checked out.
We intentionally design a program that is fun, engaging, and just a little bit silly so that your children will look forward to Kid Connect each week.
Fun and lighthearted is our standard, however we take the safety of our children very seriously.
On any Sunday or Wednesday, you’ll drop your kids off in the Christian Education building at the Children’s Ministry reception desk, where a friendly member of our Ministry Team will be ready to help you to check in. You’ll receive a printed ticket for check-out, and our friendly staff will accompany your children to their classroom, located within our completely secure Legacy Education Wing. When you’re ready to check out, just bring your ticket to the reception desk and our friendly Team member will make call for your children to be escorted back to the desk.
Our Legacy Education Wing is entirely secure. Exterior doors remain locked, with easy access outside from every room in the event of an emergency. Access to the Education Wing is available through security doors with magnetic locks managed by a friendly Team member who will be available at the Children’s Ministry reception desk all morning. Every Team member, whether a member of our staff or a volunteer, is background checked and trained in our Safe Sanctuaries protocols. When your children are with us, we will absolutely care for them just like they were our own.
