Kids Time/Sunday School
Children attending our Kids Time program on the Mountain View campus will join their parents for the beginning of the service and the first couple worship songs. They will then be invited to meet our children ministry team to receive a lesson, play a game, make a craft and participate in other age appropriate activities. Parents may then pick up their children up in the classroom.
On some occasions we will also being the children back in to conclude the worship service with their parents. Please feel free to meet our teachers before the service or to escort your child back to the classroom so they are comfortably introduced.
Our 9:30 worship service offers nursery care for young children. Allowing parents and grandparents to focus on participating in the service. We also have a “cry room” at the entrance to the sanctuary. You will still be able to see the entirety of the service from the area as well as hear hear the sermon.
Children are of upmost importance in our ministry and we do encourage them to participate in our worship services. To better engage our kids we provide a special “Children’s Message” during the 9:30 and 11:00 service. Kids are invited to come up front and receive a special message especially for them.
