Family Ministries

The Praise & Worship Center is happy to support families as they strive to raise their children to know and love Christ, and to live as members of the Christian Community. Although our Sunday Worship Services are wonderful, moving and faith-filled, they are designed for Adults. Children need and deserve an opportunity to experience God’s love for them at their level of understanding in a place where it’s ok to talk, sing, and play on the floor! Adults, too, need time to pray, meditate, sing and focus on God.

To meet the needs of our families, we provide the following at no charge:  

Childcare:  Using a professionally trained staff and volunteers, children are cared for in a clean, safe, nurturing environment. Childcare is available during the Sunday service for infants and toddlers (through age 3), and for children through age 6 during Adult Education classes.  

Sunday School (ages 4-6): During the Sunday service (unless otherwise noted), professionally trained teachers use a variety of Christian based materials to help children experience God’s great love and to encourage them to love and respect others. Bible stories, music, DVDs, games and arts and crafts activities are an integral part of the program.

Scripture ‘N Kids (ages 7-11): This program gives children an opportunity to hear the Sunday Scripture reading proclaimed at their level of understanding. At Sunday service (unless otherwise noted), a trained facilitator will invite them to a classroom where they will hear and discuss the same reading as their parents. After participating in an activity and prayer time, the children will return to their families during the Sign of Peace.
