Children

Read on to see what the DAKids are up to this summer and what families can expect on a Sunday morning at DAC.
 
 

Summer Nights

 
On the second Sunday of every summer month, we’re holding in-person, summer evening FUN! These events will be held outside; dress according to the activity. (Events will be rescheduled in the case of bad weather.) You can attend as a family – the more the merrier! 
 
June 13 -> Rock Painting and Water Games | The DAKids volunteers will be ready for a night of fun!  Come to paint some rocks that we’ll place around the church grounds, and then wash up with some water games.
 
July 18 -> (Rescheduled) DAKids Hike Night | Ms. Diana and the DAKids team will meet us at Beechwood Farms for a DAKids hike!  Long pants and sneakers/hiking shoes are recommended, and parents are encouraged to hike with their children.
 
August 8 -> DAKitchen and Bike Night | Ms. Rachel and the team have a DAKitchen snack for us to make and eat together, and we will have the parking lot for a bike night! Bring your scooter, bike, roller blades, etc.

SUNDAY MORNINGS

 Nursery

Nursery care for ages 0-5 years is available in the larger nursery throughout the morning service time. Children can play while in the care of gentle, loving volunteers.  A Bible Story, art time, and snack are included in the morning.  

The smaller infant nursery offers a quiet space with rocking chairs and a monitor to watch the service in progress so that parents can calm and feed their little ones in a comfortable environment.

*To accommodate multiple children with food allergies, our nursery rooms and snacks are dairy-, nut-, and egg-free.*
 
Have a question about the nursery?  Email our nursery coordinator, Laura.
 

Children’s Church

All preschool and elementary children are invited to attend Children’s Church.  Children begin in the main service as we worship in music together and are then dismissed to the foyer to meet the DAKids teachers.  The group heads down to the fellowship hall for a Bible Story, active games, seated activities, and snacks.  We go outside (to rear of parking lot) for our opening activities whenever the weather permits.  Children should be picked up in the fellowship hall by their parents following the morning service. *To accommodate multiple children with food allergies, our Children’s Church room and snacks are dairy-, nut-, and egg-free.*

Our Children’s Church uses LifeWay’s Gospel Project curriculum, a creative, chronological approach showing children that the Bible is more than a collection of stories but rather the BIG STORY of God’s plan to bring abundant life to His people through Jesus.  We’ll finish our first three-year journey at the end of this summer, and then we’ll start all over again in September!

Family Sundays

We hold Family Sundays once every 2-3 months, for two main reasons: (1) to show our DAKids that they are valued, integral members of our church family and (2) to give our Children’s Ministry volunteers the opportunity to be in church all together.  On Family Sunday, there will be kids serving as the greeters, a song that the kids would know from Children’s Church opening the service, a sermon appropriate for the whole family, and more.  Families can pick up family worship bins before the service. These bins include clipboards with printables that go with the sermon, craft supplies, and other self-led activities.  Check the church calendar tab to see when the next Family Sunday will be held.
