3 & 4 year-olds have a tran­si­tion class which gen­tly tran­si­tions them from a nurs­ery set­ting into a class­room set­ting by incor­po­rat­ing play­time with Bible sto­ry lessons.

Kinder­garten through 6th grade class­rooms are using The Begin­ners Bible and the What’s In The Bible Cur­ricu­lums. Their time is filled with singing, bible lessons, and fun learn­ing activ­i­ties. Chil­dren will attend Chil­dren’s Moment in the Sanc­tu­ary with their class and lead­ers, then return back to to Dis­cov­ery Zone for more excit­ing learn­ing!

7th – 12th Grade stu­dents go deep­er into learn­ing with more in depth lessons and dis­cus­sions as they dis­cov­er how rel­e­vant the bible is to their cur­rent lives as they con­tin­ue to grow their rela­tion­ships with Christ.

Par­ents are wel­come to enjoy cof­fee, refresh­ments and fel­low­ship in the Gath­er­ing Room, locat­ed in the cen­ter of the Sun­day School class­rooms.

 Safety of our children is a top priority

For the safe­ty of all chil­dren, we use an ID sys­tem for all chil­dren from infant to 6th grade. Parents/guardians receive an ID tag to be used to pick up their chil­dren at the end of Sun­day School. Safe Sanc­tu­ary poli­cies are fol­lowed.

All chil­dren are required to have an adult com­plete a reg­is­tra­tion form on their behalf. This forms allows us to know who is respon­si­ble for pick­ing up the child and pro­vides a con­tact num­ber in case you are need­ed dur­ing ser­vice time.

In the unlike­ly event of an emer­gency where the church is evac­u­at­ed, the pick-up zone for chil­dren is the side­walk behind the very back park­ing lot (Hazel Street) Chil­dren will remain with their Lead­ers until checked-out.

 WEDNESDAY NIGHTS IN DISCOVERY ZONE

DELTA

6:30 – 8:00 PM

 Grades 3rd – 6th

DELTA stands for

Disci­ples Equipped for Life Trans­for­ma­tion and Action

DELTA helps to assist the churched and unchurched chil­dren:

  • enter into a per­son­al rela­tion­ship with Jesus and devel­op con­fi­dence in using the bible to gain knowl­edge about God’s will and apply it to life to form strong healthy rela­tion­ships.
  • grow in all aspects of their life — phys­i­cal, intel­lec­tu­al, social, emo­tion­al and spir­i­tu­al.

Dur­ing our Wednes­day Night DELTA pro­gram, stu­dents in grades 1st through 6th join togeth­er to have fun learn­ing rel­e­vant scrip­tures, new skills, new games, to make new friends, all while earn­ing awards and hav­ing fun.

DELTA stu­dents and their fam­i­ly are wel­come to join us at 6pm  for a light din­ner before DELTA meets. If you like, bring a dish to share.
