Children

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

December Event

 
December 5th -> Gingerbread House Decorating | Following the all-church Christmas lunch on Sunday, December 5th, the DAKids team will be inviting all interested in a Gingerbread House Decorating Contest! Then, during the judging (don’t worry – every house wins some kind of award!), there will be a hands-on “sweet” devotional.

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 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.  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.

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, we aim to include the children in as many ways as possible, from service opportunities, a sermon appropriate for the whole family, and provided activities to supplement the morning.  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.  Our next Family Sunday will be in January.
