Sunday Morning Classes at The Ark

Sunday School classes are available for 9:30, 10:10, and 11:00 services for children ages 6 weeks through 5th Grade.

For the first 2+ years of life, we focus on making a child’s and parent’s initial experience at church a positive and safe one!  We want children to learn of God’s love at the earliest opportunity.  We begin with lots of hugs and sharing of simple Bible stories. Our nurseries are available at the 9:30, 10:10, and 11:00 services.

Our nurseries are a very special place for our littlest ones, and we know how important it is for these children to make a connection with their caregivers. Therefore, we have paid caregivers in each of our nurseries as well as parent volunteers.  Our parent volunteers are a vital part of this ministry, and we depend upon your support.  To become a parent volunteer, visit our Volunteer page to learn more.  Serve just once every 5-6 weeks for one hour.

Early Childhood

For ages 2-5, our priority is for the young child to enjoy learning about God and His Bible! By the time a child is five years old, he will have learned the basic stories of creation, the Old Testament, and the life of Christ.  Through a variety of Bible learning activities, children will learn the truths of God’s Word at their level of comprehension.

Our Sunday School classes are available at the 9:30 a.m., 10:10 a.m., and 11:00 a.m. services on the Weddington Campus.


Our goal for the elementary age child, grades 1-5, is both to have fun and to be spiritually challenged.   Children are encouraged to discover “what God says,” “what this means to me”, and “how can it be applied to my life.”  We strive for a well-rounded ministry of instruction, evangelism, discipleship, Bible memory, outreach events, missions, and special events.

Our Sunday School classes are available at the 9:30 a.m., 10:10 a.m., and 11:00 a.m. services on the Weddington Campus.
