Sunday School classes for infants through 3-year-olds are on the Nursery Hall. Sunday School classes for K4/K5 through Fifth grades are located on our Children’s Hall. When you enter the building, our greeters will welcome you and help you locate your child’s class.
Children at FBG spend the Sunday School hour experiencing the sacred stories from the Bible through Godly Play, a Montessori style form of Christian nurture that encourages a playful and wonder-filled approach to learning the stories of our faith.
During our 10:30 AM worship service we provide care in our nursery for children who are infants-3K. Children are cared for by trained nursery staff and/or trained volunteers during the worship hour. Pick up is at the conclusion of the worship service.
As a part of the worship hour on Sunday mornings, children four years old and older attend worship with their families. After the Children’s Sermon, our four- and five-year-olds are led by Worship Shepherds (trained volunteers) to Worship Care, which often includes Preschool Worship in the Carpenter Chapel. After Preschool Worship, the children are led by Worship Shepherds back to our Children’s Hallway. On Sundays without Preschool Worship, the children will be led directly from the worship service by Worship Shepherds to the Children’s Hall for playtime with their friends.
On Wednesday Nights, our children gather for spiritual formation, missions, and choir. Classes for Preschool and Elementary are on the Children’s Hallway off the Rotunda from 6:00-7:00 PM. Nursery is on the Infant/Toddler and Nursery Hall located near our Fellowship Hall.
