Children's Church             
Ages 4 - 1st Grade
Children are escorted by the leader to the Children's Church after the children's moment in both worship services.  The children will be taught a lesson, have prayer, sing and sometimes make a craft to coincide with the lesson.  This is a great way for out little ones to transition to big church.  Children this age have a hard time sitting still for a whole hour.  They sit through approximately half of the service and then are able to move and learn in a setting designed just for them.  Parents please pick up your children immediately following the worship service and please note that your child will not be released to anyone except you unless special arrangements have been made with the leader.
Children's Choirs
Children's Choir rehearsals will begin with the start of Wednesday Night Fellowship.  Those children age 3 through 1st grade are invited to join their leader in the Chapel for Cherub Choir.  Grace Choir will meet in the choir room with Leslye Ames and is open to those children in 2nd through 6th grades.  Choir time starts at 6:40 p.m.  As a reminder, children are to be escorted into the building and left with the adult in charge and parents are to come to the activity room to pick up their children when choir is over at 7:20 p.m.  We hope you will include choir in your activities for the year where they will learn songs for worship services and the musical and spritual concepts related to those songs.
