“Seeing with depth, appreciating newly discovered dimensions of life—that is, learning—is an important part of the spiritual life.”- Dr. J. Bradley Wigger
Our children’s department is committed to helping children engage faith at their varied stages of development. We aim to create an environment for the children to learn the sacred stories of our faith as children see, hear, and experience these stories with new depths.
Pre-K through 5th grade
Using the lectionary-based curriculum Whirl, both the older (2nd-5th grade) and younger (Pre-K-1st grade) children’s classes will have a fun-fill, interactive, and learning-centered Bible Study experience. Following the Revised Common Lectionary, the children will learn to connect their Bible Study learning to the larger life and seasons of the church. Both classes meet in the Kid’s Place and the younger Children will be taught by Kari Taylor and the younger children will be taught by Bill Cox. Go on, give it a whirl and click here to learn more.
Babies and Toddlers
Children up to 3 years old have childcare from 9:30am until 12:15pm every Sunday. The toddlers (2-3 years) use the curriculum Play: an interactive way of teaching children basic Bible stories and leads the children on a joyful discovery of God’s love. Our toddler class is led by Kay Suttle.
Austin Capital Grannies provide consistent, reliable care for our babies and children in compliance with our Risk Management Policy, which requires us to provide two adult workers with children in each room at all times. All of our childcare and Sunday School teachers for children have background checks for the protection of our children
