Children’s Worship and Wonder (WOW) and “Mega-Wow” offer a unique worship experience for children during the normal church hour. After the children’s sermon, children leave for a hands on playful worship experience. Greeters and storytellers join the children for a multi-sensory learning experience that reaches children on their level. WoW includes children ages 3 through the 1st grade and Mega-Wow those in the 2nd-5th grades. WoW meets every Sunday, while Mega-Wow meets the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month.

From 9:45 a.m. to 10:30 a.m each Sunday morning Children (pre-k-5th Grade) engage in a rotation-style educational program which focuses on a particular theme/concept and Bible story. During the Fall of 2015, we are using the “Deep Blue” curriculum and we are following the adventures of “Asia,” “Edgar,” and “Kat” as they, “dive deeper into the Bible.”
