Children's Ministry

Due to COVID-19, our schedules look a little different this year. Call the church office at ‭(319) 235-9586 to see what we have available at this time. You can see our COVID-19 information on our Visiting page .

We are thankful for all the children God has given us the privilege of nurturing in knowledge and love for the Lord. Throughout all of our Children's Ministries, we strive to point our kids to Jesus Christ as their all-sufficient Savior.


NURSERY

We have two nurseries available for your children:

  • Infant Nursery - Birth to 18 months
  • Toddler Nursery - 18 months through 3 years old

Nursery care is available during:

  • 8:30 AM - Prayer Service
  • 9:00 AM - Discipleship Classes
  • 10:15 AM - Worship Service

All volunteers are screened through the State of Iowa using the standard background checks. 

Both nurseries are carefully cleaned each week by our Nursery Coordinator. 


DISCIPLESHIP CLASSES

We offer classes for children from age 3 through 6th grade, meeting every Sunday morning from 9:00 AM – 9:45 AM. The classes are divided into three age levels:

  • Pre-K to Kindergarten- Classroom B (Downstairs)
  • First through Third grades- Classroom E (Downstairs)
  • Fourth through Sixth grades- Classroom G (Downstairs)


CHILDREN'S CHURCH

During the Sunday morning worship service children, ages 3 years through Kindergarten, are released right before the sermon for Children’s Church where they will participate in activities such as creative play, crafts, snacks, games and a lesson. Often the lessons run current with the lesson the children had in their Discipleship Class.


WEDNESDAY NIGHT KIDS

We meet on Wednesday nights during the school year from 6:00 - 7:30 PM. Our Wednesday night group is for children Kindergarten through 6th grade. Our purpose is to build kids up in God’s Word through Bible study, prayer, singing, crafts, and games. We also have various fun activities such as a stock car rally and visits to Friendship Village.
