While you are attending an Adult Bible Community or worshipping in either of our Balanced or Creative services, know that your kids are learning and worshipping on Son View Mountain. Children can experience God in their own kid-friendly location in a class for their age and grade.
In order to provide a quality learning environment, we have a special time schedule for them. Children can be in class all morning or they can just come one hour. The second hour curriculum reinforces what is taught first hour and builds on it with additional activities and applications.
Class times are as follows:
First hour: Drop off: 9:20-9:30, Class time: 9:30-10:40 and Pick-up: 10:40-10:50
Second hour: Drop off: 10:50-11:00, Class time: 11:00-12:15 and Pick-up 12:15-12:25
For ages 2 – 5th grade we use The Gospel Project curriculum which takes children through the whole Bible in 3 years. Each story points to Jesus so children can understand the Gospel and our need for a Savior.
We will do everything we can to provide a safe environment for your child.
- We have a check-in system which generates a sticker name tag for your child (and can include allergies/special needs)
- You will receive a claim ticket to use when picking them up.
- In case of an emergency, we have medical personnel on call during the services. If your child needs you, we will text you to come to the classroom.
- All rooms are equipped with a first-aid kit and instructions on emergency procedures.

Sunday Morning Adventures – Elementary
First hour: 1st – 5th graders begin the first hour in their classrooms for time with their teachers to do pre-lesson activities. At 9:40, they attend a large group time to sing songs in worship that will prepare them for the Bible lesson. This time ends at 9:55. At that time, they head back to their classrooms to have the Bible lesson, activities and a prayer time. This hour concludes at 10:40
Second hour: Children are welcome to stay in our program all morning. We have a break time from 10:50-11:00 with a snack. They then meet in a large group from 11:05-11:20 to worship and sing songs that reinforce what they are learning in the Bible. After that, they return to their classroom to review past Bible lessons, have the Bible lesson for the day, and do activities and games which reinforce the Bible lesson. 2nd hour concludes at 12:15.
Nursery: The nursery is open all morning for our infants – 1 year old. We divide the children up into 2 or 3 classrooms based on age. We faithfully keep a 1 to 2/3 ratio of worker to children with these ages to provide for the safest environment.
