    Childcare
    (Infant - 2 years old)

    Childcare is provided while a parent or guardian is attending a Mid-Week Grace class. 

    Infants = Purple Room
    1-year-olds = Blue Room
    2-year-olds = Green Room


    Your child will be lovingly cared for by Volunteers who have been screened, background checked, and trained. Your child will enjoy free play and snuggles in our safe, well-equipped nursery rooms.

    Parents or guardians must be attending a Mid-Week Grace class or serving at the church.


    Do I need to bring anything?

    Please bring the supplies your child will need for the duration of their stay. While we have a few extra supplies, children are most comforted by the items they are used to. To save time, please label your child’s items before drop-off. If you forget, we will have tape and markers available.


    What will my child be doing?

    We love getting to connect with babies and toddlers. We play together, enjoy a snack, and read a Bible story.

    For more information, see our FAQ’s page.


    What is available for your use?

    Nursing Room: This room is reserved for nursing moms only and is found just inside our Purple (Infant) Room. You may come and go as needed. There are comfortable gliders and a TV, where the Worship Service is live streamed.

    Cry Room: This room is just outside the Worship Center and can be used by all members of the family. The Worship Service is live streamed, so you can still be a part of the service, while you tend to your child in a more relaxed atmosphere.

    Changing Stations: There is a Diaper Changing Station in all our public restrooms. You are also welcome to use the Changing Station in our Purple (Infant) or Blue (Toddler) Rooms, where you will have access to wet wipes and diapers, if needed.

    What your child will be learning: We use Group’s Hands On Bible Curriculum. We’ll learn about different concepts of the Bible in fun and engaging ways.

    What your child might do: Your child will engage in a variety of activities, such painting, playing games, eating snacks that go with the lesson, and singing silly songs. There is a Bible Lesson time where your child will learn more about God, the Bible, and Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross.

    Pioneer Girls
    (1st - 6th Grade Girls)

    Pioneer Girls is a time for fun, developing friendships, and learning about our Savior. Your daughter will connect with other girls led by a female Guide who comes alongside her as a mentor to train them how Christian girls should live and think.


    What your child will be doing: Club begins with saying the pledges and prayer. Most of the evening will be spent working on earning badges, much like Girl Scouts. They might bake something in the kitchen, put together a birdhouse, make a collage, or go hiking. Then it’s time for “Bible Ex” (exploration), where the girls will dig into their Bibles to learn more about what it means to be a girl who follows God. But there is plenty of time for goofiness, too! Don’t be surprised if your girl comes home singing a silly song! Club is lots of fun!

    Special Events: There are a few main events throughout the year:
    Christmas Party
    Father-Daughter Dinner
    Overnight Camp

    Builders (3rd & 4th Grade) and Sentinels (5th & 6th Grade): Boys’ Brigade is a high-energy club that meets the boys where they’re at and encourages them to live their life as men of God. The evening includes saying pledges and prayer. There is an engaging Bible lesson given by one of the Rangers. A big part of their evening is working on badges, much like the Boy Scouts.

    Thinking Biblically About Immigration (9/28)
    Pastor Greg Grindinger
    Chapel

    Immigration is a hotly debated topic that affects us locally. We need to understand history, current events, terminology, immigration agencies, and the multifaceted issues surrounding immigration to apply timeless biblical principles in how we interact with all people, both politically and personally.


    Your Brain and the Gospel (10/5)
    Pastor Paul Utnage
    Chapel

    Cognitive changes affect everyone at every stage of life. These issues can impair learning, working, and relating as they raise more than physical questions throughout the aging process. Cognitive changes can cause us to question our Christian walk and how we practice spiritual disciplines. God speaks into these struggles to help us focus on what creates true satisfaction, deep fulfillment, and meaningful impact.


    Constructed Faith in an Age of Deconstruction (10/12)
    Pastor John Cherne
    Junior High Room

    In our current cultural moment, a movement called deconstructionism has gained influence in breaking down and even tearing apart the historic teachings of the Bible and the Christian faith. In this conversation, we will explore what constructed faith looks like, a faith that is built up and ready to give an answer for the hope that is within us.


    The Christian and Politics (10/19)
    Pastor Sandy Willson
    Chapel

    With national mid-term elections and other local elections on November 8, it is natural for us to ask the question: what role should the Christian take in politics and civic life? In this session we will explore what the Bible says about civic duty and what our Presbyterian heritage has taught us through the centuries.


    The Doctrine of Predestination (10/26)
    Pastor Sandy Willson
    Chapel

    Among Bible-believing Christians there has been significant discussion and debate for centuries regarding the doctrine of predestination. In this session we will discover what Presbyterians believe, why they believe it, and what difference predestination makes.


    Thinking Biblically About Modern Warfare (11/2)
    Pastor Greg Grindinger
    Chapel

    U.S leaders face complex decisions regarding if, when, and how to respond to U.S. vital interests overseas. Christians question when it is right to go to war and what is right conduct in war. By understanding the history, mission, resources, and organization of the Department of Defense, we will learn to interact biblically with current discussions regarding the global involvement of U.S. military.


    Bloodshed, Violence, and a Loving God (11/9)
    Pastor John Cherne
    Junior High Room

    What is with all the bloodshed? What is the deal with all the sacrifices and violence in the Bible? These are some of the questions we will consider as we examine God’s means of grace, justice, and wrath.


    Healthy In-law Relationships (11/16)
    Pastor Sandy Willson
    Chapel

    When marriages occur, everyone in the extended families is hopeful that relationships across family lines will be smooth as silk. Too often, they are not. In this session we will discuss some secrets that help us promote healthy and happy relationships with our in-law families.
