Children are dismissed during the 11:00 worship service to our upstairs classroom. Each session models adult worship. Our Bible story boxes include figures, pictures, fabrics, and structures for a multisensory experience. Children can play with these story boxes to interact with the characters and enter God’s stories.

Bagged activities are available on the windowsills in the sanctuary and children’s bulletins are distributed during worship.

Opportunities for Adults:
- Adult Seminar – Sundays 9:45-10:40
Contact: John Rommel
Join us on a “walk through the Bible” as we study major figures and stories in both the Old and New Testaments. We will look at individuals such as Noah, Abraham, Samson, and, of course, Jesus to see how their stories string together into one amazing thread. This study is appropriate for those new to the Bible and for those familiar with the Bible who wish to delve deeper and see how stories tie together. The format is highly interactive, so bring your Bible and your questions and get ready to learn a bit more about our mighty God and the lessons He teaches us through His word.
- Adult Bible Study – Sundays 9:45-10:40
Contact: John Hunter or Frank Lammey
Studying Proverbs, together we will work to answer the question, “Do the teachings of Proverbs apply to our 21st century lives today?” We welcome those who are new to the Bible, those who are longtime Bible students, and everyone in between. Join us! Let’s explore this question together!
- Mommy & Me (Mothers of Young Children) - Sundays 9:45-10:40
Contact: Dallas Genter or Mary Moyer
It's not always easy being a mom. Every day (sometimes about 1000000 times) we hear "Mom, Mom, Mom" and we begin to lose sight of who we were before MOM. There are days when everything goes off the rails at 8 am. And there are moments of sublime joy. Let's share and live these moments together, with the only other people who truly understand what it means to be Mom. A group for moms to share, laugh, cringe, ask, help, commiserate and support. Children welcome, but the nursery will be open!
