In Sunday School at 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., preschoolers and kindergarteners are being shown and taught the love of Christ through Bible stories, activities, and games as they learn about the Bible in fun, interactive ways.
Worship Care, for babies through 4K, takes place during the morning worship services at 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. every Sunday.
