Programs for Kids Birth to High School

Nursery (Birth to 2 yrs.)

Sundays 8:00am, 9:30am and 11:00am | Mondays at 6:15pm

The nursery at Curtis Lake is a safe environment for infants and toddlers ages birth to 2 years. A full staff of volunteers works hard to provide a nurturing environment that engages children at their level of development.

We know that leaving your child for the first time can be overwhelming. The volunteers in our nursery have been chosen for this age group because of their love for infants and toddlers and their training to care for all of the needs of your child. When you arrive to drop off be sure to let the greeter know any information about feeding, napping, or diapering that will help us care more effectively for your child.

A Few Things to Remember

  • Please bring diapers, bottles, and pacifiers.
  • Please bring any special blankets that will soothe your child through the morning
  • Please be sure to label all items that belong to your child.
  • Please arrive 10-15 minutes before service. This allows time for check in and to grab some coffee.

Firefly Hollow (2 Yrs. to Pre-K)

Sundays 8:00am, 9:30am and 11:00am | Mondays at 6:15pm

Firefly Hollow is a weekly environment created especially for your pre-school aged child (ages 2 – Pre-K). We know that young children are learning and growing in amazing ways. Every Sunday, we take advantage of this unique opportunity to introduce them to God and the love He has for them.

Nothing is more important for your children than to begin to understand who God is. We want them to know God as their Creator, their Heavenly Father, and their Friend. With this in mind, we want all pre-schoolers to master three key truths before they leave Firefly Hollow.

The Core Teaching

  • God made me.
  • God loves me.
  • Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

Kidz Church (K-4th Grade)

Sundays at 9:30am and 11:00am | Mondays at 6:15pm

In Kidz Church, we believe the Bible should never be boring, worship can be really loud and good leaders always care.

  • 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.

During Kidz Church, kids see how God’s word fits into their lives, learn how to talk to Him, and build lasting friendships. That’s why it’s important to make sure your child connects with the same friends, same leader, at the same hour – EVERY SUNDAY and MONDAY! Kidz church is available during our 2nd and 3rd service and Monday night.

Club 56 (5th and 6th Grade)

Sundays at 9:30am and 11:00am | Mondays at 6:15pm

Club 56 is an environment where students in 5th and 6th grade gather to explore their relationship with Christ and others. Club 56 meets in the Alley on Sunday mornings during both the 9:30am and 11am services as well as on Monday nights at 6:15pm. Curriculum interactively engages students with topics relative to live in the “tween” years. The Alley is located upstairs behind the Main Auditorium.
