Sunday Activities


Our nursery is for children 2 and under, and is staffed every Sunday throughout Sunday school and the church service. We have many dedicated and loving church members who volunteer every week to watch the children of the church in order for their parents to have time with God, learning more about His word.



Children’s Sunday school

childrenssOur children’s Sunday school program is where our children first start learning about our Lord Jesus Christ. They are able to learn Bible stories such as Noah and the Ark, Jonah and the whale, Zacchaeus, Moses, and many more. We teach the gospel using age appropriate curriculum, and the Sunday school hour consists of crafts, praise and worship, and a classroom lesson. Our dedicated staff believes every child is a gift from God and needs to be shown the love of Christ.



Other Yearly Activities

Vacation Bible School


For one week in the summer, children ages Kindergarten through 5th grade (grades entering this fall) have a chance to learn about God by going on a trek back to Bible times! Over the past few years, our children have visited Daniel and learned about his faith in God even though he was thrown into a lion’s den, as well as Paul and his journey through Athens!


This summer - June 17th - 21st - Join us for an adventure to an uncharted island where kids are Rescued by Jesus! A week of experiences where kids are anchored in the truth that Jesus carries them through life's storms.


Every night, for a few hours, children have the chance to sing worship songs to Jesus, learn about a person from the Bible, make a craft, play games, and have a snack. Come join us this coming summer on another trek back to Bible times!


Spring Valley Bible Camp

Spring Valley Bible Camp, located in Muscatine, Iowa, is a place where kids make lifetime memories! Starting in 3rd grade, and all the way through 12th grade, kids can come to camp and spend a week learning more about God, gaining new friendships, swimming, playing hide-n-go-seek in the dark, and eating LOTS of good food! Spring Valley Bible Camp just built a lodge where all the girls now stay, as well as having the kitchen and cafeteria.
