Infant - Pre-K

The Sparks program is driven by three principles we want every child to know by the time they leave this program:

  • God made them
  • He loves them
  • Jesus wants to be their friend forever.

Sparks-LogoChildren learn about Jesus and His Word through age-appropriate videos, Bible stories and music taught and cared for in self-contained classrooms by a regular staff of committed teachers. Learn more about our curriculum at What is Orange - First Look.

Nursery - for infants and little ones not yet on the move
Walkers - toddlers now on the move but not yet two years old
2 Year Olds - if age two by September 1
3 Year Olds - if age three by September 1
4 Year Olds / Pre-K - for kids aged four or five by September 1, not in Kindergarten

Kindergarten - 4th Grade

Ignite-LogoOur mission is to ignite a passion in our children to love, serve, and follow Jesus.

Our children are taught about the Lord and how they can follow Christ in their home, school and community as we rotate through large and small group time and engage in high-energy, Biblically-based programs for their age group. They take part in great worship, hear relevant teaching in a large group setting, and spend time with their small group shepherd who knows them and cares for them.

The children have time each Sunday to engage in worship, teaching, hands on learning in small groups, discussions and prayer time. They are led by a wonderfully committed group of teachers who are passionate about transforming lives through the power of Jesus Christ.

Each month there is a Biblical virtue that is emphasized and parents are given the tools to follow the lesson throughout the week. Learn more at 252 Basics.

5th - 8th Grade

5th and 6th grade students use a curriculum by Group called Grapple.  The lessons in Grapple are based on real questions asked by 10-12 year olds that grab their attention and don’t let go. Students will learn how to search the Bible for answers and build a faith foundation that guides wise choices.

7th and 8th grade students use the XP3 curriculum from Orange.  We want students to be able to articulate their faith, navigate the Bible, dialog with God, personalize Scripture, have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, serve others and worship God.

Children's Ministry for 5th-8th grade students is only available during the 9:45 AM service. During the 11:45 AM service children in 5th-8th grades may sit in the sanctuary and worship with their parents.

Child Security

Our goal is to provide a safe and secure environment for your children while they learn about God and worship Him. To help achive this goal all children must be "checked-in" at one of the following check-in locations:

Ignite Room (entrance to the left of the Solid Rock Cafe)
Fellowship Hall (church building)
Upper Room (brick building across parking lot)

Sample Check-in TagCheck-in / Security Procedure:

  • Start at any of the check-in locations. One of our Children's Ministry volunteers will check-in your family and give you a pick-up slip and each of your children a nametag (with a matching security code) that allows you to pick them up quickly at the end of the service.
  • In the event that we need to reach you during the service, we will page you using the 3 digit alphanumeric code that is located on your pickup slip that also matches the number on each of your children's nametags. There are LED displays located in both front corners of the sanctuary and there is also an LED display in the Cafe that will display pager numbers when needed.
  • Please let us know if your child has any allergies or special instructions when you drop them off.
  • When you pick up your children please show the Children's Ministry staff your pickup slip.
