Our Vision and Sunday School Programs (11:00 a.m. Sundays)
Our Nursery is far more than a babysitting service. The volunteers that serve in the Nursery wish to introduce your children to the culture of worship and biblical instruction and to prepare them for a lifestyle of knowing God and making Him known.
For children under two years of age, this is done primarily through stories and teachable moments. Once a child enters the two-year-old classroom, we begin to formalize this instruction through a time of singing and age-appropriate instruction.
Our two- and three-year-olds learn how much God cares for them through the “God Loves Me” curriculum. Each week they are introduced to God through the lives of biblical characters (Abraham, David, Jesus, Paul, etc.) with a Bible story and a craft or activity to bring the story to life. Our four- and five-year-old class uses the “Show me Jesus” curriculum from Great Commission Publications. Children learn that they belong to Jesus because of God’s great love in salvation, and that He is the God who keeps his promises faithfully to his people.
Atonement Baby Club
Every other Thursday, 10:30-Noon
The Atonement Baby Club (ABC) meets twice a month in the baby nursery for time to play, sing Bible songs, share ideas, chat and build friendships, and possibly even create a craft!
Let’s raise children and families who will grow up loving Jesus and knowing Atonement as a place of love, support, and family. Contact: Dawn at firstname.lastname@example.org 301-649-4131.
