What Do We Teach?

Our curriculum “First Look” & “252 Kids”  is published by reThinkGroup.org  and uses a comprehensive strategy for every age from birth through graduation.  We use the R.E.A.L. learning approach in our classrooms to creatively teach the Father’s foundation with fun:

R- Relational Children work in small groups to explore their understanding at a personal level.

E- Experiential  using multiple senses increases learning and retention tenfold. You’ll find painting, puppetry, music, parachutes, drama and more.

A- Applicable  Beyond information to transformation, your child should be able to answer “so what?” when they leave their class.

L- Learner-based  Our teachers strive to use words appropriate to their specific age level and invite them to take on a weekly challenge to apply their learning.

Who Are Our Teachers?

Our volunteer classroom teachers are carefully selected through an application process, are interviewed by the Children’s Ministry Pastor and have a CORI background check administered.  We look for teaching that is full of surprises, interesting, and challenging. Our teachers are dedicated to being prayerful and loving towards the children as they bring high-energy and creativity to the classroom. We’d love you to come check us out if you are interested. Let us set up a time where you can just shadow a teacher as a helper and you can get an idea of where you might fit in.

Grades 1-5 begin the morning in the service upstairs in the Worship Center with their parents and then meet their teachers in the lobby at announcement time. All of our teachers are CORI checked, interviewed, and have background references. Training is provided and they are awesome!!

We ask that you pick up your children promptly after the service is over in these locations: PreK & K  in Classroom E on the main floor, Grades 1-5 in the KidsZone Worship Center (Lower Level).
