COVID-19 Response

I hope you are all doing well and feeling rested. I surely have missed seeing everyone but I hope and pray that our time apart will be short and we’ll be able to have fun together soon!

Until we can meet together again, we’ll be posting online lessons on Wednesdays here on the Church Website.

For Sundays, we’ll be posting a message from Kim and videos from our regular Sunday curriculum, along with activities you can do to support the lesson. These will be loaded online before Sunday morning and you can do them any time!

Sunday

On Sundays we’ll move through a series of videos for our lesson. First, Kim will do an introduction and update. Next, you’ll watch a video from our Sunday curriculum, Orange. To wrap up you’ll download activities for you to down with your child at home.

You’ll head over to a different experience page depending on the age of your child: preschool or elementary. Please use the buttons below to select your experience.
