Where Children GROW in the Lord!

In The Garden, you will find a place where your child can learn, grow, and have fun as a disciple of Jesus Christ!  We have a variety of classes, events, and programs that are designed to impact the lives of children in a meaningful way.

When visiting on a Sunday morning, you will check your child in at our Check-In Station which is located downstairs.  Take an immediate right after entering through the main doors of the church and proceed down the stairs. A name tag will be printed for your child and a matching pick-up code will given to you as well.  After checking in, children will remain with parents in the sanctuary for a time of praise and worship.  Children will then be dismissed to their classrooms downstairs before the message begins.

Family Sunday’s are special Sunday’s for you and your children to worship and learn together in the sanctuary. There are Worship Bags available for the children as you come through the main entrance.  Each bag is filled with age appropriate activities for your child.

Nursery (Birth to 3 years):  We have an amazing team of nursery workers to watch over infants and toddlers in our nursery (located downstairs below the sanctuary). If at any point your child needs you during the service, someone will locate you and let you know.

Preschool - Kindergarten (Ages 3 to 5 years):  No matter their age, our goal at The Garden is to teach children about the love of Jesus. We want them to see God in all areas of life.  If we can accomplish this in a setting where they can have fun and enjoy being with other kids their age, then we consider it to be a success.

1st-5th Grade Class:  This is where 1st-5th graders can worship and discover God by studying His Word and how it relates to them.  Our team of volunteers will share the Word of God through interactive lessons and fun activities.
