Preteens are kids 9-11 yrs. who are “in between” childhood and adolescence. With such a unique transition happening in their lives, they need a place where caring people understand their unique needs. We offer Preteens a unique Sunday experience that meets them where they are and encourages them as they discover what their next faith step is.

4th & 5th Preteen Worship: 11:00 am | Children’s Rm. 203/205


Your child’s security is very important to us. Check-in is located at the Children’s Building parking lot entrance. Kids will receive a check-in tag and parents will receive a matching tag. The matching pick-up tag is required before a child is released. Only adults or siblings 14 yrs or older are allowed to pick-up children.

If you are visiting for the first time, please help us know how to best care for your child’s needs by spending a few extra minutes filling out a guest registration card.

Kids Next Steps

This is a salvation and baptism class for children who are asking questions about becoming a Christ follower and wish to follow through with believer’s baptism by immersion. This class is a no-pressure class that will answer children’s questions and walk a child carefully through their understanding of the choice they are making. This four-week class involves parent participation at home. To join the next session, email


Emerge 6:15 P.M. | Child RM 203/205

In Emerge, we want children to know that being a follower of Jesus is a journey, and most importantly that they are not alone on that journey. As children build upon their understanding of the Biblical principles, they are encouraged to “hit the trail” and live out this principle each week individually. *Summer schedule varies

FALL 2021/SPRING 2022

This year’s program will focus on Bible Drill skills. Bible Drill teaches children how to study the Bible, develop memorization skills, and the proper use and handling of the Bible.

-memorize 25 Bible verses
-locate/quote verses in the Bible correctly
-identify 10 Key Passages based on the title (i.e. The Ten Commandments)
-memorize and locate books of the Bible in order

This semester’s goals:
Kinder-1st: learn an abbreviated version of Bible Drill with music and games

2nd-3rd: learn the full version of Bible Drill using games, learning exercises, and preparing 3rd graders for competition

4th-5th: work all year on Bible Drill skills and go to competition in February for Church Drill, March for Associational Drill, and April for State Drill
