Toddler Room - Main Level (walkers thru 2 years old)
First Hour 9:00 am & 10:00 am Service In addition to free time playing and having fun, our little ones will hear and see what God has made. We believe all children, even the very tiny ones, benefit from hearing God's word and praises in music. We want to make the most of the time we have with the precious ones in our care so we use the See What God Made curriculum introducing our little ones to the amazing world we live in. Through very simple teaching techniques, we present two fundamental principles:
- God is the creator of all things and everything He made is good.
- The Bible is true and it is God's book for me.

Each lesson begins with a Bible story taught with different visuals followed by a Bible memory verse, music, craft and games that are not only fun but help children apply the truths they learn to their everyday life. This class will provide the children with a warm and nurturing place to learn about God with the goals of:
