College Park Kids!
Each Sunday morning kids ages 3 through 5th grade have an opportunity to experience the Bible in a way designed to minister to their developmental needs. Classes are divided up into the following: PreK and Kindergarden; 1st and 2nd; 3rd and 4th; and 5th grade. Currently we are using David C. Cook's Heartshaper curriculum in our 1st through 5th grade classes. Elementary classes are available during both worship hours.
We have a fully staffed, age-appropriate nursery and toddler classroom during both morning worship services.
Babies birth – 18 months will be held, cuddled, diapered, played with and fed if needed by loving volunteers.
Toddlers 18 months – 3 years will enjoy playtime, story time, and snack time. They will be diapered when needed or taken to use the potty if potty training.
Children age 3 - kindergarten meet at 9 a.m. for 15 minutes in the youth addition for an opening songtime. From 9:15-10 a.m., we have Sunday School classes in the church basement. At 10 a.m. we enjoy music time with Miss Sherry and her friends, followed by combination age classes during our 10.30 service.
1st - 5th graders also meet in traditional Sunday School classes during the 9 a.m. service. Music and memory verses fill the 10-10.30 transition time, with children's church for grades 1 & 2 and grades 3 - 5 during the 10.30 service.
Sunday School classes for junior high and high school students meet in the new youth addiition classrooms in the east part of our building during the 9 a.m. service.
Each Wednesday (September - early May) the classrooms and common areas are alive with the sounds of our student ministry programs. Awana (which means Approved Workers Are Not Ashamed) for children age 3 - 5th grade meets from 6:00-7:20 p.m. each Wednesday with music, Bible stories, games and Awana book time for each age.
