Worship Gatherings (Sunday Mornings)

Our teens are an important part of our worship gatherings. The environment is laid back and the messages are geared in a way that this age group is engaged and can grow by being a part of the larger community. 

 

Missional Communities (2nd and 4th Mondays)

This age group is a part of the first hour when we hang out and eat. They are welcome to stay with the adults during the study and discussion time or are welcome to hang out upstairs or outside. This is not a structured time, but it ends up being a great opportunity for these friends to enjoy some time together.

 

Current trends reveal that many teens leave the church - and often their faith - as they leave home. One way to engage this is to incorporate teens into the regular life of the larger church family as well as provide opportunities for age-specific community where they can deal with issues unique to their stage of life. This 2-fold approach helps our teens navigate their life now as long as thinking long-term.

NURSERY/CHILDCARE:

Worship Gatherings

A nursery is provided for infants-preschool. 

Quiring's Missional Communities (2nd and 4th Mondays):

The meal time is a “family atmosphere” and our littles are with us. During the teaching and discussion time we have childcare available for our littles. We have a story time with the preschoolers and a time for them to engage in play.  


 

SPROUTS: Elementary Aged Kids

Worship Gatherings (Sunday Mornings)

During our Worship Gatherings, our Sprouts are involved in the beginning of the gathering where we sing. After singing, they are invited to go to a Bible lesson and activity geared specifically for them. This time includes a bible lesson and activity.  Your child is welcome to stay with you during the entire Worship Gathering or join the kids’ teaching time. 

 

Missional Communities (2nd and 4th Mondays):

Kids join in the meal with the adults and the “family life” atmosphere. During the teaching and discussion they engage in playing with the other kids with either a movie or just free play.  We are constantly adjusting to the needs of the current group dynamic. Our goal is to create a safe and welcoming environment for kids of all ages and to give them space to connect with other kids in a community setting.  Please contact us for specifics for the group you are interested in attending.
