Special Connections

We value inclusion whenever possible.  However, we offer a class for children, teens, and adults with special needs during both hours on Sunday Mornings. This class is staffed with teachers who extend special care to ensure the individual needs of each student are met and that they learn about God’s love for all of His children.

FAQ 
Security - Procedures - Conveniences

Safety & Security :
Safety is a top priority in the children's area!
  • All volunteers and staff members who work with minors submit to a nation-wide background check. 
  • Security cameras are placed in all  children's classrooms. 
  • All children (birth – 6th grade) are signed in by their parents on a computerized check-in system for an added layer of security. Check-in is a central part of our security plan.
  • To make Sunday morning run smoothly for both you and your children, we encourage you to enroll your children prior to your first visit. 
Frequently Asked Questions:
  • When do my children go to Sunday School?  Sunday School meets during the 9:30 hour. Children three and younger may remain in their classes for ETC (Extended Teaching Care) during the 11:00 hour. Children in Pre-kindergarten and Kindergarten classes attend the beginning of the 11:00 service with their parents and then return to the children’s area for Praise Connection.
  • Where is the children’s area? The children’s area is on the first floor and easily accessible via the  Children's lobby, which is the open area in the middle of the first floor hallway.
