What to Expect
At ARISE we love kids. We consider it a great privilege to get to teach and lead these little lives. We don’t offer our kid’s programming because we want to get the kids out of the sanctuary, kids are always welcome to stay upstairs. However, we recognize that often kids learn better when things are presented in a way they can more easily understand.
Held downstairs, the small classes and large group format has a VBS (Vacation Bible School) feel to it. We use music, video, games, crafts, and stories to convey the specifics of the Bible as well as the overarching message that the whole Bible is about Jesus. We welcome all kids, but specifically birth through 3rd grade elementary. Parents are welcome to pop in and see what it’s all about. We also have a nursery available for the wee ones.
Do we have anything for older kids?
Yes, prior to service we have "mornings with mids", which is a Sunday school type class for any student in 4th - 8th grade. If you have a child that is high school, we partner with our local Younglife to invite our kids to attend there.
