• Parents will be notified by cell phone or pager number if their child is sick.
• Parents should bring their parent’s badges when they pick up their child.

Children’s choirs are designed to train children in Biblical truths primarily using the medium of music. Other creative and performing arts are employed as well, including drama, movement, and visual art. Each child is placed in a graded choir which offers trained teachers, large and small group time, hands-on experience with musical instruments, and opportunities to perform in church services.

Girls In Action
Each week girls in grades 1 – 5 and their leaders take a trip to different parts of the world as they learn about missions and missionaries. The goal of GA’s is to instill a lifelong burden for praying, giving and doing missions. As girls complete “WorldVentures,” they are recognized at an annual Recognition Service. They meet each Wednesday, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Main Campus – room 206.
Young men study about various missionaries around the world. Beginning with their own life, they see how missions begin with them and then expand to the church, the state and on to the world. There is a mix of mission stories, Bible verses, and activities geared to help them understand the culture and needs of people around the world. At the conclusion of each year there is a Recognition Service to reward them for the work they have completed. RA’s meet at the Main Campus in rooms 250 – 252, from 6:30–7:30 pm on Wednesdays.
This free and exciting weekly event is available for Grades 3-5 (completed) during the school year provides both structured and unstructured activities along with a study room.
