Our typical Sunday morning schedule (with ages) looks like:
10:00am | Coffee Break
10:30am | Worship
10:45am* | "The Orchard" (kids through 7th grade)
12:00pm* | Worship & "The Orchard" concludes
*indicates approximate times
We've found doing education for our youngest age groups (birth-8th grade) works best for families to happen during our worship service...what we call "The Orchard".
"The Orchard" (aka Kids SS for kids up to 8th grade) takes place each week from approximately 10:45am til the end of the worship service around 12:00pm. Immediately after the kids message which happens during the worship service the kids are dismissed to age appropriate classes downstairs.
Our desire is to provide the whole family with an efficient and meaningful worship and educational experience on Sunday mornings, thus the change to most traditonal SS programs.
We will contiunue to challenge and expect our teens in grades 9-12 to remain in worship, to sit with their parents and begin the transition toward a more adult interection with the whole worship service. We provide Kid Packs that contain kid friendly biblical resources that regularly match up with the text of the sermon to help aid in this transition. Please see an Usher to help locate a Kid Pack for your child.
Our pastor teaches through a book of the Bible one verse at a time so be sure to bring your Bible and come prepared to use it to take in the word preached.
We are constantly looking for better ways to educate all ages and in particular support the central role parents play in teaching their children the scriptures. Please pray we are always open to making changes where God leads us.
