- The glue that sticks kids to Christ, uninterrupted for life, is worshipping God. Authentically worshipping God comes from truly knowing who God is.
– Children are led to Christ through relationships with adult mentors who show and model Christ's love and grace.
– Children come to church, especially in the teen years, because of “who else will be there”. We need to develop these relationships now so they stay connected through the teen years.
We strive to reflect these values whether your child comes on a Sunday morning, a Weekday evening or to any of our special events. We help them experience the stories of the Bible in a way that is relevant to their young lives.
We are committed to providing a safe environment where your children can engage in fun activities where they can learn to know God, develop caring relationships with adult mentors, meet new friends and strengthen relationships in a Christian way.
Sunday School 9:45 - 10:40
Join us on Sunday mornings at 9:45 for a time of fun and learning!
Children K-2 meet in the "Cinema on the Mount" room (#218) for a time of Celebration. During this time, we sing, take prayer requests and praises and taking up an offering. At 10:00, it's off to class! Children K-2 meet together in Rm. 235 and children grades 3rd- 5th meet in Rm. 221.
Children newborn-2 years can play in the nursery while the
3-5 year old children have class in Rm. 116.
After Sunday School, the children can go to the nursery or the
worship service with their parents. Following the Children's sermon
during the 11:00 worship service, children, ages 3 through
grade 4, have the option of staying with their parents or going
back to the nursery for a children's story time. During this
time the children sing, have a short Bible story, a craft and free time
to play until picked up following the service. If you can’t make it to
Sunday School, this is another opportunity to learn about Jesus.
(Children’s church is optional.)
Our Nursery is open during each opportunity to worship. We provide
two paid staff and volunteers at all church services.
Wednesday Nighters 6:30-7:30
Our children’s Wednesday night program is for Elementary children K-5th grade. We provide a variety of lessons and activities. On Wednesday after
our meal. Children have been in school all day and have homework, so we
try to provide a little lighter study than our Sunday Morning lesson. The Wednesday Nighter programs run with the School calendar. (Sept.- May)
Our Children’s Department also reaches out to our own community
providing an Easter Egg Hunt that is community wide with a puppet show, refreshments, crafts and pictures with the bunny. We also provide free
snow cones and popcorn along with a free craft time, and games at an
annual community wide Jubilee every May. A community wide Fall Festival
with a Chili Cook-off is another opportunity to serve our community
You're never too young to do the good works of God! Children grades
3-5 will have opportunities throughout the year to participate in
Missions Around Chattanooga. Whether helping members from our
church with needs or helping feed or clothe the homeless, our kids
will be able to share the love of our Lord with others.
