Early Childhood

When you bring your child to the Early Childhood area they will experience much more than safe and dependable childcare. We want to welcome them into a caring environment designed just for them!

Zooper Church

For preschool-age kids, Zooper Church is the program that relays God’s Word in bite-size pieces that are easy for them to understand and enjoy. From week-to-week, children are given clues that teach important Bible stories they will love.

August Theme: God Hears Me When I Pray
Zoo Clue: I can talk to God anytime
Scripture: God will help us in times of trouble. (Psalm 46:1)
Bible Story: Daniel in the Lion’s Den

Zooper Church Songs:
“Bigger Than Big” – Whirl-n-Worship
“Talk” – Kidmo Jr. Preschool Worship CD
“The Shrink Song” -Little Praise Party

Childcare is Available for All Services

While you are in worship service, you can be sure that your child is experiencing a safe and loving environment. Our volunteers truly have a heart to serve the kids in our community and offer childcare during every service and at all locations. Services times are Sundays at 9:00am and 10:45am, and Wednesdays at 7:00pm. We also offer a 12:30pm Sunday service at South Campus only.

Volunteer in Early Childhood

Our volunteers are simply amazing. They lift the atmosphere, connect with kids to show them God’s love, put parents at ease about the safety of their child and create memories that last a lifetime. If you feel called to serve the families in our church, we would love to have you on our team!

What is the wellness policy?

To ensure a safe and healthy environment for every child, we request that parents take responsibility for making sure their children are well before coming to church. Please make sure children are symptom free for at least 24 hours before bringing them to their class.

What if my child is unable to stay in class?

We want everyone to have an incredible worship experience and that’s why we offer parent rooms and nursing rooms to accommodate those with fussy or vocal children. These rooms have play areas for the kids along with TV monitors of the service so you don’t miss what’s happening. If your child becomes too active or fussy, we kindly ask that you take advantage of these options.

How do I dedicate my child to the Lord?

We believe dedicating children to the Lord is a very important step in raising them in a God-honoring way. We offer a Baby Dedication Class as well as Celebration for parents who would like to dedicate their child to the Lord.
