“Merge” 5th & 6th Grade Sunday Programming

Merge is overseen by our Middle School Youth Ministries designed specifically for 5th and 6th graders to grow faithfully in fellowship with one another, to become spiritually grounded in order to face the turbulent years ahead, and to move from hearing the Word of God to living the Word of God. It serves as the crossover between Children’s Ministries to Youth Ministries.

We meet on Sunday mornings from 9:30 am to 10:30 am in the Youth Center.  No registration required.

FOR PARENTS

Children Worship Bags

Children’s Worship Bags are available for our Traditional Services and can be found on the coat tree as you enter the Sanctuary. The Worship Bags are labeled for Early Elementary and Upper Elementary age children. In each bag are age-appropriate children’s books, sketch pads and colored pencils, and other fun items. Please help us to continue to provide this helpful resource for each worship service by making sure that all items, with the exception of coloring/activity sheets your child may have used, are returned nicely to the bag at the end of the service and placed back on the coat tree when leaving.
