SUNDAY SCHOOL (9:30 & 11:00 a.m. every week)

godlyplaysmallerGodly Play: preschool through grade 1. The story circle. Imaginative work. Feast. This is how we wonder and share in Godly Play Sunday School (two classrooms at 9:30; one classroom at 11:00).

deepbluesmallDeep Blue:  grades 2-5.  Diving into God’s Word with stories, science, art, and games.  This is how we build relationships with God in Deep Blue Sunday School (one classroom at 9:30; two classrooms at 11:00).


Child Care
Free child care is available for all worship services and by request for other programs at COTS (at least three days in advance). To request child care, contact Pam Bowler

Kids Club (3rd-5th grades)

Kids Club is an opportunity for kids from the Children’s Ministry Community to spend time with one another outside of Sunday School. Check out our Newsletter for upcoming Kids Club Events. You do not have to be a member of the church to join Kids Club…even if you’ve only visited us one time, you are welcome to join. If your child made a friend, follow that connection through Kids Club! We’d love to have you. If you have questions or would like more information, contact Lydia Stephens at


Dinner & Conversation
Several times each year we have dinner together in the Great Hall. Kids watch a movie and parents gather for conversation focused on living and growing as Christ followers.

Breathe Respite
Breathe is an evening of respite for families of children with special needs. Kids come to a fun fair of activities and quiet spaces. Parents get a night out. Breathe happens three times each year in January, April, and October. Click here for more information on Breathe.
