On Sundays

Child Registration

We will register children for their classes near the Welcome table by the main meeting room prior to service. If you come after 11:50am or after the adult service praise time, please bring your children straight to their classroom and we will register them there. We value the safety of all our children so as you register your child for Sunday school, you will be given a green identification wristband that will correlate with the number given to your child(ren). You will need to show this wristband in order to pick-up your child from his/her classroom. All the children’s classrooms are also located on the lobby floor down presidential hallway (unless otherwise notified).

Infants and Toddlers

A nursery is available for infants and toddlers in one of the classrooms on the lobby floor-presidential hallway- with qualified care workers. It is our hope that unless you have signed up to help that Sunday, you will feel comfortable to leave your child with our workers so that you can freely attend service. However, if any issues arise, please leave your cell number in case we need to contact you during service.

2-year-olds – 5th graders


Children, 2 years old through 5th grade, will attend part of the adult worship service with their parents. The children will then be dismissed to their classes during the greeting time by the presider. Teachers will be available outside in the main lobby to escort the children to their classrooms. Younger children may still need assistance from their parents. Please remember to check if your child needs to go to the bathroom or needs a diaper change prior to dropping them off.

Nursery-aged children (Peapods) and 3-4 year olds (Lil’ sprouts) will go directly to their classrooms located on the lobby floor down presidential hallway. The children Pre-K through 5th grade will meet in large group before splitting into their classes (Seedlings (PreK-K), Saplings (1st-3rd), and Oaks (4th-5th). Please pick-up your child after service and bring your green identification wristband for proper check-out.

God’s Garden Policies & Procedures

Please review our Well Child Policy for Sunday Worship. Every child attending Sunday school will need to have a filled out child care registration card. You may download, print, and fill out the form in advance, or fill it out at the Children’s Ministry registration table on Sunday. Children graduate to the next class at our annual Fall Kick Off in September.

Pre-School Playdates

We will re-start our regularly scheduled playdates for pre-school aged (and below) children in different people’s homes, or on a nice day we will even meet at a park or at the zoo in 2015. If you would like to sign-up and/or host a playgroup please fill out this form or for more information contact
