Sunday Morning FAQ

What time is children's programming available?

Sunday morning programming for birth–grade 6 is available at the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. services. All of our classrooms open 15 minutes prior to each service.

It's our first time. Where should we go?

If it is your first time with us, please proceed to our Channel One Children’s Ministry Welcome Center inside the Worship Center entrance. One of our greeters will be glad to check-in your family. We utilize a security tag system for you and your children so please check in here first.

What are your security processes?

All children participating in children’s programming must be checked in each week through our computer system. This is an important step in our security process and we appreciate your help. You may also notice a team of police officers that canvas our campus and ministry environments, including children's ministry. Be sure to say hello, we love our security team!

CRAZE 2024

Craze is an incredible week of worship, games, crafts, and more. It's a place where faith can grow and kids learn to love Jesus more. It's the most fun week of the year!

Family Baptism Celebration

We believe that baptism is a choice someone makes after they trust in Jesus as their personal Savior. We celebrate our children's declaration of faith in Jesus at our Family Baptism Celebration. Our baptism celebrations take place immediately following the last Sunday morning service in our outside baptism pool.

Friends and family are invited and encouraged to attend. Parents are also welcome to be baptized with their children.

Baptism Class: This required class focuses on what the Bible says about sin, forgiveness, baptism, and a personal relationship with Jesus. It's casual, fun, and interactive. We require that at least one parent attend the class with the child being baptized. Each family leaves with a resource to utilize at home for further conversation. We offer this class on Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings prior to the Family Baptism Celebration.

Legacy Class: This one-time, one-hour class is typically offered two weeks prior to the dedication at both 9 and 11 a.m. It is designed for parents to learn what it means to impart a godly legacy to their children. This class is a prerequisite for parents who are participating in Child Dedication.
