Worship Sundays at 9 and 11am, with Sunday School for all ages!


Arcola Children's Ministry

Jesus loves your kids, and so do we!


Children's Sunday School, and Preschool and Nursery Care

K-5 kids experience God's love through a dynamic, interactive worship and Sunday School experience at 9am each Sunday, while adults worship in the Great Room.

During the 10am hour, Celebration Choir (for grades K-5) rehearses in the Choir Room, and children's fellowship is available in Ruth Hall. During the 11am service, elementary aged children are invited to worship with their families in the Great Room.

Our youngest disciples - infants, toddlers and preschool age - are welcome in a more intimate classroom or nursery environment during worship services and the 10am Sunday School hour, where they learn about God's love for them through caring volunteers and age-appropriate activities. Nursery and preschool classrooms are located in the hallway between the Great Room and Ruth Hall; you can be directed there when you enter the Worship Center

Sunday Schedule

Vacation Bible School

VBS is one of the highlight weeks of our year! Kids explore God’s awesomeness throughout the week and form a rock-solid faith for the road ahead.

Each day at VBS, kids discover the vastness of God's love through station rotations that reinforce Bible Points and point kids' eyes up to a loving, powerful God who is bigger than... well, anything! Stations include Sing and Play Celebration, Imagination Station, KidVid Cinema, Games, Bible Adventures, and snacks. And we'll have our Bible Buddies characters to guide us through the week!

5th Grade Bible Group

Your 5th grader is ready to explore their faith more on their own, and this class will help them get a taste of Middle School Youth, get to know the Middle School youth leaders, and learn about the Bible. The class meets January through June each year, and the students receive Bibles at the end!
