Children

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

The focus of our Children's Ministry at the Chapel
is to increase their knowledge of God
and to cultivate a love for Him and His Word in their hearts. 

Camp 1914

We call our Children's Ministry "Camp 1914." The name is based on Matthew 19:14, where Jesus displayed His love for kids with the invitation, "Let the little children come to Me." Based on this verse, along with the adventurous theme of camping, we've divided our kids into three different "cabins" according to children’s ages: Hummingbird Cabin, Deer Cabin, and Owl Cabin.

Our Hummingbird Cabin serves the babies and toddlers of the church (ages 0-3). Their classroom is located at the far end of the hall downstairs in the third classroom on the left. Babies and toddlers are welcome to join the nursery after our time of worship and before the sermon each Sunday. Parents are given a numbered pager, to be returned when kids are picked up at the end of the service. There is also cry room available for parents and newborns in the mini nursery upstairs (located by the restrooms off of the foyer outside of the sanctuary).

Our Deer Cabin serves school-aged children from ages 4-6. Their classroom is located off the hall downstairs in the first classroom on the left. We use the Generations of Grace curriculum, published by Grace Community Church, because of its detailed and Christ-centric approach to learning the whole counsel of God's Word. Kids are dismissed to Sunday School after our time of worship and before the sermon each Sunday, and return to parents toward the end of the sermon. This allows them to take part in communion if parents so choose.

Our Owl Cabin primarily serves school-aged children from ages 7-9, but 10 year olds are welcome to join as well. Some of our 10 year olds sit in service instead - it's up to the parents! The Owl Cabin meets in the fellowship hall downstairs. They also use the Generations of Grace curriculum! Kids are dismissed to Sunday School after our time of worship and before the sermon each Sunday, and return to parents toward the end of the sermon. This allows them to take part in communion if parents so choose.

Children 11 years and older are asked to sit in the service with their parents. They are welcome to grab an activity folder from the library (located off of the foyer outside of to the sanctuary upstairs). There are white Deer Cabin folders for ages 4-6, and blue Owl Cabin folders for ages 7+.

All of our kiddos ages 4+ stretch their listening muscles by sitting in the service each fifth Sunday of the month (on the months that include a fifth Sunday). Nursery children are an exception; nursery is provided every Sunday of the month throughout the year. Our activity folders are especially useful on those Sundays!
