Children’s Education

Children’s Christian Education Opportunities

Our staff and volunteers who work with children (infants through High School) have been screened and cleared through state processes as part of our Safe Sanctuaries policy to provide a safe environment for our members and visitors alike.

Nursery (Newborn to age 4)

For children newborn to three years old during the 9:15 am service.   Facilitator – Tiff Rettew. Located second door from the Sanctuary.

Ages 4 years old – 5th grade (Fellowship Hall)

For children four years old through fifth grade. Teachers – Robin deMackiewicz, Tacey Weaver, and Jean Foutz.  Fellowship Hall (Basement) Floor. We use the Faith Weaver curriculum to teach an age-appropriate lesson that center around a faith nugget such as “God made us,” “We can trust God,” or “God cares for people in need.”  Each lesson is accompanied by an activity page and a take-home page.  We also allow plenty of time for exploration, since that is the primary way children of this age learn.

High School & Middle School  (Room 201)

Teachers- Meredith Fausey and Jordana Swank. From elevator on Second Level, take a left around the corner and the room will be the first one on the right.  For grades 6-12. This class is focused on growing in our relationship with Christ. We learn how to depend on Him when we feel alone because of our new experiences and growing independence. We use discussion based Bible studies to help us along the way. We are respectful of everyone’s opinion, even if it is different than our own. We strive to live our lives the way we know He wants us to. In this class, the teacher acts as more of a guide and the students are encouraged to lead each other as they journey into a new chapter of their lives.

 

Kidz Choir & Pioneer Club

From mid-September through mid-April, during our Be In The Light program, children 3yrs old and potty trained through 5th grade may participate in Pioneer Clubs. They may also wish to sing in the Kidz Choir.
