Where do children go on Sunday?
Providing a safe, secure and fun environment where they can learn about God is our highest priority.
To be sure every child is safe while they are with us, we have a computerized check-in and security system. When you and your family arrive at Creekside, you will check your children in at any of our computer check-in locations. There are two in the lobby of our children and youth building, and one near the lakeside entrance to the worship center. From the check-in stations, a volunteer will help you locate the correct classes for each of your children.
"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it"
We have a place for each little one
Birth to 18 months old children attend our nursery during service hours where our loving volunteers do everything possible to comfort, love, and engage your child while left in our care. Be sure to let our volunteers know at check-in of any special needs or allergies your child may have.
18 month until mastery of potty-training or age 3, your child will be a part of the walker group. Snack, music, stories, developmentally appropriate play, and lots of fun happen in this group. Our volunteers do a wonderful job of celebrating each child's unique personality.
3+ to the beginning of kindergarten will be a part of our preschool class where each week includes an age appropriate bible story, a craft or coloring activity, snack, music, and guided play time. Our volunteers share an excitement of learning about god and his word with these kids, which creates a fun atmosphere for everyone!
Children in kinder through 4th grade will be together in our Camp Creekside which is geared to engage children by creating an atmosphere which leaves them wanting to come back time and time again! Through multi-media presentation of god's word, worship, and fun and crazy games, our elevate curriculum helps us accomplish this goal. All age groups participate in large group teaching time, then split off into small groups for age appropriate application of what they have learned.
As your children enter 5th grade, and beyond, we encourage them to become helpers within our younger kid's classrooms on Sundays. They volunteer their time to play with and watch these children during our regular church service hours. This is also the age where they begin attending church with their parents, as well as being a part of our Youth Ministry Program.
