To lead families and children into the freedom and grace found in Jesus.
To equip and support parents in their role as spiritual leaders of their families.
To cultivate a desire to know, praise, and enjoy God outside of church.
Before the Service
To enable parents to serve on ministry teams, and to engage with Open Space, we offer options for children from birth to 10 years of age before our service.
Available starting at 9 am for kids aged 0-4 during the Open Space hour.
SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES
Fun, interactive Sunday School classes split into grades K-2 (Sparks!) and grades 3-5 (Iron Eagles). These classes combine a mix of play, song, and catechism. Kids are encouraged to grow in their faith, to ask questions, and to find joy in Christ.
During the Service
Iron Works offers environments for children from birth-2nd grade during Sunday service.
BABYWORKS: 0–2.5 years
In addition to special care and nurturing each week, little ones will be introduced to Bible stories and catechism music incorporated during their time in the nursery. It’s never too early to learn to worship.
TotWorks: 2.5–4.5 years
A weekly class that allows children to freely explore Bible stories and elements of the worship service in addition to supervised play. This time allows for a gentle, grace-filled introduction to the classroom. This class centers on three essential truths: God made me, God loves me, and God is with me.
KIDWORKS: K5–2ND GRADE
A weekly class with an emphasis on preparing children to remain in the service by 3rd grade. We seek to accomplish this by including the children in worship with the congregation at the beginning and end of the service and by creating a special place for them to experience and learn about God during the service. During their Kid Works time, children will engage with the Bible, learn about God's love for them, and be encouraged to think about and discuss their faith.
Typically on the first Sunday of each month, children aged 4 and up are encouraged to participate in a service geared toward them. The pastor speaks to the children at various points during the sermon and gives them special instructions. A variety of supplies and resources are available for children to use during the service, and an area has been designated for creative movement led by our Doodle Dance Team during certain songs.
