Sunday Mornings
 
Nursery
The nursery is available for children birth to age 2 during Sunday School and Worship. The nursery is equipped with a changing table, high chairs, a crib, swings, and plenty of toys.
 
Sunday School
Sunday School begins at 9:45 every Sunday morning. Children are split into classrooms based on their age starting with age 2 and going up to 6th grade. Each class studies The Gospel Project curriculum to learn about Jesus through the Scriptures.
 
Children’s Church
Before the sermon, during the 10:45 Worship Service, the children (starting with age 2 – kindergarten) go up to the altar for a Children’s Sermon. Children then dismiss to the Children’s Area for Children’s Church. Parents pick their children up after the Service.  Please be sure to sign up to help with Children’s Church at this link.
 
Blessing of the Backpacks
We will have our Blessing of the Backpacks each year just before the beginning of school.  
 
 
 
Joyful Noise
The last Sunday of each month is Joyful Noise Sunday. During the Children’s Sermon, the children walk around to the congregation collecting change. The change goes toward feeding students through the Backpack Program at Marion School District.
 
 
Wednesday Afternoons
 
 
Worship With Friends

Our Worship With Friends will kick off is Wednesday, August 25!  Please insure your child is registered the Sunday before they plan to attend.  This is a paid-for, after-school program that provides rotations of music, devotional Bible lessons, crafts, recreation, and snacks! This year parents will have to help provide transportation to students, and students from Herbert Carter Global Elementary School will walk across the street with assistance from church employees. The cost for WWF is $100 per child, per semester; this cost covers material fees, snacks, and helps supplement youth workers.  Sign up forms can be found at the follow link.
