We desire to demonstrate to children of all ages that a relationship with Jesus Christ is not a remote option which can be added into one's life at a later point in time, but rather an essential part of even a very young person's life. We want children to have the opportunity to begin a spiritually abundant life at an early age, to live daily in grateful dependence upon the Lord God, and to learn what it means to glorify God and enjoy His presence forever.
The Children’s Division is comprised of three smaller parts: Nursery Care, Early Childhood, and Elementary. Nursery Care is provided for children up to two years of age. Early Childhood serves children from age two until they enter elementary school. Elementary serves children from first grade through fifth grade. Once children enter the sixth grade, they pass from Children’s Division into the Junior High Division.
