Children’s choir is provided for all children from three years old to sixth grade. These choirs encourage our children to sing praises to our Savior, Jesus Christ, and to grow as musicians and worshiper leaders. The choirs perform specials throughout the year.

Extended Session follows the Sunday morning Bible Study during the morning worship service. It is a continuation of the Sunday School program for the Preschool Division. This hour of Bible learning activities enhances and reinforces concepts learned in the previous hour’s Bible Study. The children are taught about Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ through the use of story telling, craft projects, and singing.
