Children's Church & Sunday Schools both are located inside our dedicated Children's Building of the church campus.  This is our middle building on campus.

The Children's Entrances are marked with large outdoor brushed aluminum Children's Ministry signs above those two doorways.  

Nursery to K is called "The Meadows of Sandy Plains" (in Education Building - middle of campus)  Outside the official check in you'll see the brushed aluminum sign for "The Meadows" check in entrance.

1st Grade to 6th Grade is called "The Highlands of Sandy Plains" (in Education Building - middle of campus).  The outside entrance has a brushed aluminum sign visible above the door for "The Highlands".
