Our Purpose

“But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Jesus Christ” (2 Timothy 2:14-15).


  • A God-centered, Christ-Exalting ministry
  • Teachers who teach from the overflow of their hearts (One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. Psalm 145:4)
  • Regular prayer for the children by leadership, staff, and parents (Incline your ear, O LORD, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. Psalm 86:1)
  • Curriculum that is doctrinally deep and rich
  • Teamwork with parents
  • Communication with leadership, other staff and parents
  • Faithfulness in all things
  • Classrooms that are orderly, disciplined and well behaved
  • The personal safety of every child

More About Children's Classes

Our classes exist to continually present the truth of God's Word to little ones with the prayer that God will open the eyes of their hearts to the beauty of his goodness to us in Christ that they might learn to delight in His truth and rely on him for all things.  For questions about our curriculum, contact Janice Gilmour.

More About our Nursery Care

Care for Infants is generally for ages 6 weeks to 9 months.  Care for Crawlers and Walkers is generally from age 9 months to 24 months.  However, you can speak with our Nursery Superintendent to help determine where your child which room would be best equipped to help to meet the needs of your child.
