How We do Sunday Morning Ministry

The main Sunday morning meeting is primarily for corporate worship and celebration, exhortation, and proclamation of God’s Word. Here families have the opportunity to worship together as we celebrate God’s grace “in the midst of the assembly.” Sunday mornings also are our venue for focused Children’s Ministry to various ages. 

We invest in the lives of our children, believing in their value and potential. We want every person, young as well as old, to find their fullest delight in the Lord Jesus. Thanks to dedicated staff and dynamic volunteers, we have thriving ministries to our young people. We believe that God is enabling us to affect a generation!


Sunday Morning Children's Ministry

There are several ministries going on during the service on Sundays that serve children aged 0 through 5th grade. We desire to see people thriving at every age. We are grateful to have dynamic, caring, experienced leadership in our children's ministry.  They would love to answer any questions you might have:  email us or give us a call at (708) 895-4673.

Nursery

Amanda Van Deursen leads our nursery ministry for babies age 0-2. They take great, personal care over each child so that parents can be released to worship God freely. The nursery is open the entire service and has a designated nursing mom's room.

2's, 3's & 4's

Laura Hogan and her team take care of our 2-4 year olds. The children play with some pretty awesome toys, learn Bible stories and do engaging crafts throughout the whole Sunday morning service to introduce them to the love of Jesus at an early age.

KindergarTen and grade (K-1)

Our K-1 ministry is also led by Laura Hogan. All children who are 5 years old on or before September 1st are considered to be “kindergarten” age. With an engaging curriculum, they teach and challenge our children with a variety of learning styles to see them grow up strong in the Lord. Our K-1 class is dismissed during the service at the end of worship, except for the first week of the month when they remain with their families for "Family Worship Week."

Promiseland

Promiseland is led by Mandy Wynsma and serves our children who are 7 years old on or before September 1st, which is typically comprised of children in grades 2-5. Promiseland starts with a large group component where they engage a biblical topic in an interactive format and then break off into their age-specific small group. Promiseland is committed to showing our children Jesus in a stimulating and encouraging environment.
