Children & Students

Nursery: Newborn to 15 Months

Even the smallest members of Central enjoy attending Sunday School. The Nursery program offers a quiet (most of the time), Christian atmosphere that allows parents the chance to attend an adult Sunday School class.  Location 1st Floor.

Toddler: 15 Months to 3 years

We help out toddlers learn socialization skills such as sharing and playing with others, while helping our preschoolers learn a very basic understanding of who, what and how God and Jesus can be part of our daily lives. A period of playtime is followed by story time with all activities tied to or based on a Bible story or lesson.  Location 1st Floor Room 1-9, 1-10)

Beginners: 4 and 5 year olds

Using Bible stories and lessons, our focus is to help our children link life experiences and to practice what they are learning. Topics includes: Jesus is God’s Son, God helped Jesus grow and learn, and Jesus’ friends help one another. Location 1st Floor,  Room 1-4, 1-6.  

Children: 1st and 2nd Grades

Children: 3rd and 4th Grades
