(NEWBORN – 2 YEARS OLD)
Crestview offers nursery services during Sunday morning worship. Parents/guardians can drop off children to nursery as early as 9:15 am, and pick up as late as 10:45 am. Parents/guardians may also keep children in the sanctuary for worship songs, and bring them to the nursery when our YCW class is dismissed. We kindly ask all children are signed-in accordingly, including name, emergency contact information, and special medical attention information. If your child may need a diaper change, please bring an additional diaper for the nursery staff. Our nursery is always staffed with two people, and we pride ourselves in ensuring a safe and clean space for your loved one.
YOUNG CHILDREN’S WORSHIP
(3 YEARS – 2ND GRADE)
The Young Children’s Worship (YCW) program offers a separate worship time for children just beginning to learn about God’s presence in scripture. This reverent approach to worship helps young children experience–not just learn about–God. Each Sunday morning we create a special worship environment in which children and their leaders and assistants sense the awesome wonder of God.
Children age 3 through 2nd grade come to the sanctuary with their parents and enjoy the worship song service. They are blessed and dismissed just before the message begins, and they participate in their own worship experience, in a room just outside the sanctuary. The class ends at the same time worship service ends.
(3RD GRADE – 5TH GRADE)
Children in 3rd through 5th grade participate fully in the worship service, with access to art materials and word puzzles, and a service that’s crafted to take their age and interests into account. Near the main doors of the sanctuary, children can select a binder and/or “busy bag” which includes art/puzzle materials.
SUNDAY SCHOOL (Children’s Spiritual Education)
During Sunday School, kids look forward to time with a trained, background-screened teacher who prays for and cares for his or her students, and activities that address multiple learning styles and personal interests. Lessons prominently feature scripture and, often, perspectives on the Christian faith through Reformed teaching and interpretation of scripture.
(3 years – 5th grade)
Each Sunday during the school year, Sunday School meets from 10:45 to 11:30 am in classrooms throughout the church. Currently, we are studying the Dwell curriculum, and have two different age groups for classes. These classes are staffed by a volunteer teacher and assistant and average between 4 and 12 students per class.
(6th grade – 12th grade) Each Sunday during the school year, Sunday school meets from 10:45 to 11:30 am in the loft above the sanctuary. They are currently completing a bible/devotional study, chosen by the leaders, and appropriate for all teens.
