Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” –Matthew 19:14

We want church to be a place everyone is encouraged to draw closer to Christ—young people included! That’s why, on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings we offer fun and engaging environments where children can learn and grow in faith. All our kids’ programs are designed to be safe places where children in our church can learn new and exciting things about God while being led and cared for by adult volunteers from our congregation. It’s our hope to encourage children to not only discover new things about God, but also begin to understand how those things matter in their own lives.

Sunday School

Following the Children’s Message at the 10:30 service, those who choose will be escorted from the Sanctuary to attend Sunday School. In their age appropriate classes children engage in lessons, crafts, music and activity centered around the day’s Bible story. 

On fifth Sundays and holiday weekends, we cancel Sunday School classes so our children and Sunday School volunteers may be in worship.

Wednesday Faith in Motion

Begins September 4, 2019

Our Wednesday night programming, Faith in Motion, begins with a family meal in Fellowship Hall from 6-6:30.   At 6:30, children ages preschool to 5th grade are dismissed to their classrooms.  

We use rotation style classes and children get to participate in a different rotation each week. Rotations include games, missions, cooking, science and crafts.  Children will participate in a lesson centered around the month’s theme, then conduct a science experiment or work together as a team and make a fun recipe that ties in with the theme.  

Infants and Toddlers

We want parents to be able to fill their own need to connect wiht God and Broadway. We provide childcare on Sundays during both the 8:30 CORNERSTONE and 10:30 PROCLAIM worship services. The nursery is also staffed on Wednesdays and Tuesdays for adult small groups and Broadway meetings.

We want you to feel comfortable, so we provide a safe and fun environment.  We require background checks for all nursery staff.  Our nursery staff are also trained in basic first aid.
