Each service is age appropriate complete with worship, teaching, offering, communion, and small group discussion. Our lesson is a variation of the same teaching offered in the main adult worship service. We call this approach to teaching "The Big Idea." It is designed to allow families to share and discuss Scripture in a whole new way.
Check in for Elementary students takes place at the east entrance of The Eddy. If you enter the church building by door number 2, we are on the left. If you come in the main entrance, go through the Lobby, find the restroom area, and continue up the ramp. At the end of the hall, turn left. When you get to the brick red tile hallway, you have arrived.
From the main lobby, take the ramp that is next to the Coffee Area, going towards the office. At the end of that hallway, take a right. Once you are in the main part of The Eddy look for signs on the door with your student’s grade. You will give the small group leader the tag you received at check in and then sign your student out. To exit, leave the same way you came in for pick up.
When you drop off your student, there will be TWO tags to write your student’s name on. The individual picking up your student MUST HAVE THE SECOND TAG TO PICK UP YOUR STUDENT. If you or that individual does not have this tag, a form of identification must be presented in order to pick up your student.
The pick up tags will have the same number on each tag and if you are needed, that number will be put on the screens in the Worship Center.
We recommend that all students bring their Bible. We use the NLT version of the Bible, but any translation will do just fine!
We offer the workbook, I Am a Christian Now, for students interested in baptism. We encourage parents to go through this booklet with them. After going through I Am a Christian Now workbook, if you feel that your student is ready for baptism then we are also confident in that decision. If you would like for your student to meet with a pastor, we are more than willing to schedule an appointment.
We offer communion at all three of our services. We explain what communion means and the manner in which it should be taken. Students are advised that communion should be taken by those who believe that Jesus is God’s Son, lived an obedient life, and died to take away our sins (those wrong things we believe, say, or do), so that we may be with Him one day in Heaven. Please have this discussion with your student(s) ahead of time and let them know if you want them to participate in communion. Communion is offered in such a way that students who do not take communion are never singled out or made to feel awkward because they do not participate.
