BLAST Learning Hour: 9:15-10:30am
Children begin the morning in worship with their parents at 9:00am. After the opening music and message, they are dismissed with their leaders to attend BLAST.
BLAST is an engaging, virtues-based curriculum for K-5th graders that includes music, a large group Bible Story, virtue introduction, and prayer time, followed by age-appropriate small group activities that help children practice living out what they have learned. The curriculum fits our mission well with its emphasis on:
Faith - I can trust God no matter what
Wisdom - I need to make the wise choice
Friendship - I should treat others the way I want to be treated
Preschool BLAST includes Bible Stories, crafts, activities, and music designed to teach children: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend. Children attending Preschool BLAST must have a nametag on before going to worship. Nametags can be found in the church lobby. Parents will need to show their portion of the nametag when picking their child up after worship.
Worship on the 1st Sunday of each month
On the first Sunday of each month, Oct.-May children attend the 9:00 BLAST worship service with their parents instead of class. This service introduces the new BLAST virtue and provides a shared faith experience as the whole family worships, sings, receives Communion, and prays together. Parents of preschoolers can choose to have their children participate in this special service or go to the nursery.
