For Children

Children are a welcome and vital part of our community. Our children's ministry aims to give them a church home where they are called by name and discover discipleship and and grow in love of God and others. 

With special times on Sundays and Wednesdays, and through our weekday preschool, we share Christian values and themes in a variety of ways — through songs, drama, crafts and service. We also give parents tools and resources to help them guide their child’s spiritual development.
Children are welcome in all worship services. Your child can attend age-appropriate Church School classes, and are encouraged to participate in other programs within the church.

If you have any questions or would like to get connected, contact Anne Lowrance, director of children's ministries, or reach Anne at 704-804-7593.


Summer Sunday School

Elementary students will attend 9:30 a.m. worship and register with a shepherd in the narthex. Following the “Time with young disciples,” students leave for a lesson in EW207. Parents pick up children from class.

Preschool – Kindergarten children may be brought by parents to first floor at any time during worship. Check in at electronic monitor or classroom door (age as of Aug. 31, 2017).

Volunteering is a great way to: 1) serve God, 2) connect with other parents, and 3) get to know the kids in your child’s class. If you haven’t found a place to connect with Children’s Ministry, please visit our Volunteer Spot page.




Lively laughter, sweet songs and, OK, even a few infant cries, rise from the first floor of the Education Wing, a place where our youngest children make their first church friends, hear their first Bible stories and sing their first songs about God's love. Within the safe, nurturing environment, the seeds of faith are planted and begin to grow.

Each Sunday children enjoy interactive activities, cultivating their gifts while engaging in discoveries from God's Word. In a nurturing environment that includes singing, prayer, role play, scripture and leadership opportunities, children learn about God's faithfulness and the love of Jesus Christ. Christian service and stewardship also are emphasized through a variety of opportunities.
