Parents, we have Sunday Curriculum for you!

The weekly videos and “Parent Cues” may be found here along with other resources.


The Cove provides a place where babies through five year olds can relate to, where they feel safe and a place that sparks their curiosity. Even more importantly, The Cove is for our young ones to come to know who God is and learn how much He loves them.

The learning process is a fun weekly hands-on setting in classrooms full of objects for kids to touch, wild and wiggly activities to get them moving, crafts they will love getting into and real life situations they can relate to.

Our Cove Teaching Team is committed to living like Jesus, loving your children and building relationships with them as they develop their ability to know and worship Him.

The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse is a special place for worship in The Cove for ages 2-5. We believe preschoolers are wired for worship!

Each week they will have an engaging and interactive experience where our Lighthouse team will help to bring the Bible story to life. The lesson in the Lighthouse is then reinforced with their small group leader in the classroom.


Parents, you can assist and participate in your child’s learning process during Bath Time, Play Time, Drive Time and Cuddle Time. The monthly resources will give you information such as Cue Cards, Guides, Videos, Music and More!
