Birth – Age 2
Dedicated volunteers look forward to loving and caring for precious little ones each week in our nursery. Safe and secure Baby Rooms provide care for infants and are based on development: newborns, sitters, crawlers, and cruisers. Once a child is walking, he/she is assigned to a class based on birthdate. theChurch.at also caters to parents who prefer to be with their children during services. All of our campus locations provide a comfortable and convenient environment for mothers to be able to care for their little ones while still experiencing services.
3 Years – Pre-K
All programming is based on teaching three core truths from the Orange First Look Curriculum: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friends forever! Children are assigned to a class based on birthdate. Preschoolers enjoy structured class time with a Bible story, craft, activities and snack, as well as a large group environment in The Theatre.
Every Sunday the Bible comes alive in this large group setting specially designed for preschoolers ages 2-5. Preschoolers experience a worship time combined with engaging teaching through storytelling, puppets, or drama to help them understand foundational bible stories on their level.
LEAD ELEMENTARY PASTOR
The Special Needs Ministry teaches children with special needs about Jesus in ways that are meaningful to them based on their developmental, behavioral, and sensory needs.
Synergy enables kids to connect with a Small Group Leader—an adult outside of the home that can be a spiritual leader in their life. Kids are divided into groups by boys and girls and will experience both large group (drama/worship) and small group settings. Each week in small groups, they will experience open discussion about Bible lessons, pray for one another, and participate in fun activities.
Verge is geared to be fun and relational while providing creative bible teaching to help pre-teens grow in their walk with Jesus. Similar to Synergy, Verge will connect pre-teens with a Small Group Leader. Pre-teens are divided into groups by boys and girls and will experience both large group (drama/worship) and small group settings. Each week in small groups, they will experience open discussion about Bible lessons, pray for one another, and participate in fun activities. Pre-teens will also have opportunities to engage in missions, overnight retreats, camp, and other fun activities!
Alpha is an event that occurs multiple times each year and is designed for the elementary-aged child who has recently committed their life to Christ as their Savior. After a child makes an initial response to follow Jesus, we encourage the parent and child to meet with an elementary staff member to reinforce their decision. If both child and parent desire for the child to be baptized, they will be invited to the Alpha Celebration to celebrate their new life in Christ!
