The nursery is the way our church gets to show its newest members the love of Christ. This love is shown through cuddles & snacks, toys & bubbles. Our loving nursery workers get to nurture and comfort these children ages birth to 2 years old during both 9:30 and 11:00 services on Sundays, as well as Wednesday nights as needed.
SUNDAYS | 9:30 HOUR
KIDS WORSHIP CAMP & SMALL GROUPS
On Sunday mornings at 9:30, kids in Kindergarten—5th grade get to have their very own worship service full of music, small group time, games, prayer and scripture. Their small group leaders help to connect the dots of scripture to everyday life and Ms. Katie ties everything together at Kids Worship Camp. Our curriculum is 252 Kids from Orange.
What does 252 represent? It’s not our street address or the number of questions a 2nd-grader can ask in 20 minutes. Instead, everything we teach in 252 Kids is based on one of the three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52.
- I need to make the wise choice.
- I can trust God no matter what.
- I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
252 Kids is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. It focuses on 150 Key Bible stories, 4 Faith Skills and 30 Life Apps.
For ages three to five, we offer a Pre-K class on Sunday Mornings! The kids get this time to learn about the Bible, God and Jesus in a fun and exciting way! Our teachers have a great time every Sunday getting to help the kids learn the foundation of our beliefs. We use First Look from Orange as our curriculum for this age group.
Everything we teach our preschoolers is based on one of three simple, but powerful, truths.
- God Made Me
- God Loves Me
- Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever
The entire curriculum is constructed to incite wonder in a preschooler and meet them where they are cognitively, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially. Through age appropriate activities, preschoolers are building their spiritual foundation so that by the time they graduate to Kindergarten they know the three basic truths.

Pre-K – 5th Grade:
Teaching our kids what worship is while giving them the opportunity to apply what they learn and share with the entire Ford’s Chapel Family.
During our mid-week programming, we enjoy family dinner at 5:30 and then split into age-based small groups (kids, youth and adults) to explore a church-wide topic for the evening. From 6-7pm the kids explore Bible stories and scripture through study, song and play.
Throughout our year, we will celebrate holidays or special times in our church. Past events include Easter Egg hunt, Neighbor Day, Family Day at the Park and our Back to School Bash. Many new events are on our horizons so please keep an eye out for the next upcoming event!
We are incredibly thankful for our weekly chapel services and shared events with the Ford’s Chapel Learning Center!
