Our children are our most important assets. They are our future and it is our responsibility to help shepherd our youth into His kingdom.
Every child is special and we don’t want any to fall through the cracks. We use several curricula at various age levels so that all of our children can be taught according to their individual needs and learning styles.
We have separated the age levels as well to make learning and discussions more age-appropriate.
Infants and Toddlers
children are a heritage from the Lord
We have a cry room at the back of the sanctuary as an option for parents. A nursery with qualified staff is available as a safe place for your infants and toddlers up to 3 years old.
The nursery not only allows the children time to play and enjoy themselves during the service, but it also gives parents quiet time to sit and focus on the Bible study.
for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these
Children's classes begin each service following the worship.
Sunday Mornings – 1st Service
Classes are separated into two levels: 1st through 3rd Grade and 4th though 6th Grade. There is childcare for children through Kindergarten available in the nursery.
Sunday Mornings – 2nd Service
In our 10:30 am service, classes are separated into three levels: Pre-K through K, 1-3 and 4-6.
Additionally, there is a class for youth, grades 7-12.
The Preschool-Kinder classes use the Group "Hands-On" curriculum that also uses a scripture-based topical approach. These lessons are focused more on the actual Bible stories (i.e. Jonah and the Whale, Jesus’ Birth) with four or five lessons covering a broader topic (i.e. Family Life in Bible Times, How We Got The Bible).
Grades 1-6 use a verse-by-verse curriculum developed by Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. It is very similar to the verse-by-verse Bible Study format that the Pastor uses and takes the students through the Old and New Testaments beginning with Creation (Genesis 1:1) and ending with The River of Life (Revelation 22:21).
Thursday Evening Service
On Thursday evenings, we use the Group "Faith Weavers Friends" curriculum for our elementary classes (grades 1-6) which use key verses and themes to teach our youth what the Bible offers each one of us.
Through the use of projects, games, memory verses, and discussion, the children learn first-hand just what their faith is about.
Revolution Youth for grades 7-12 meets upstairs.
Dropping Off/Picking Up Your Child
In order to provide a safe and secure environment for your child, we ask parents of children 3rd-5th grade take their child to the classrooms after worship and sign them in. Parents also need to go to the classroom after the service to sign their child back out.
Parents of children in Preschool and Nursery classes will be given a number when they sign their child in and must have that number when they pick up their child. This ensures that the children are in safe hands.
