Elementary [K–3rd grade]

Elementary is for kids in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. Children learn how to study the Bible, to worship through singing, and to build quality friendships with other kids and adult leaders. It consists of both a large group energetic worship experience and small group time.

We want all elementary students to know that…

  • I need to make the WISE choice.
  • I can TRUST GOD no matter what.
  • I should treat OTHERS the way I want to be treated.
