Kindergarten to Grade 5

Age & Class Breakdowns

Sunday and Wednesday classes are determined by grade level. Grade School kids promote to the next grade at the beginning of summer (including 5th graders who promote to the Middle School Department).

 Weekend Grade School Programming

“KIDS Church” is designed specifically for kids and is modeled after the best media-driven entertainment and education programs. In The Zone, 1st-5th graders come together for large group games, singing and Bible teaching before heading to their classrooms for small group discussion and activities based on the lesson. Kindergartners meet in a separate classroom at the beginning of the school year and are transitioned into KIDS Church in December. KIDS Church is offered during the 9:00 and 10:45am services.

Midweek Grade School Programming

Wednesday nights, “Highlight Grade School” children allows them the opportunity to connect “God stuff” with real-life issues through various activities–Bible stories and studies, discussion and other activities. In addition, small group interaction introduces children to the concept of Christian community and prayer. Classes open at 7:00pm and end at 8:30pm. (30-40 minutes of playtime in Scotty’s Playhouse is also included in our Wednesday night programming.) Open house registration for midweek programming is the first Wednesday of September. After that date, parents should plan for an additional 10-15 minutes at their first drop-off to register their child(ren). To save a little time, print and complete all three registration forms before your arrive.

We are extremely thankful for the 200+ volunteers that make our ministry efforts possible.

From time to time and for various reasons, volunteers are absent. In these cases, if a back-up is not available, a class will be closed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you are interested in serving as a back-up for your child’s class, complete a Background Check Release Form and return it to either Help Center in the children’s wing.
