Tiny Valley Classes
Sundays | 9:30 & 11 a.m.
(During adult service)
In Tiny Valley Sundays, we strive to create the building blocks of a strong, Bible-focused foundation for our kids. We walk chronologically through the Bible being sure to teach all of the major stories that show who God is, and what He did through Jesus. In class, we sing, dance, and teach the incredible stories in the Bible. We also memorize one verse each month.
Our electronic check-in system allows us to keep your child safe, contact you if necessary, and keep accurate attendance records. To check your child in, visit a check-in kiosk and enter your phone number.
If you’re visiting Cedar Valley, you can add your family to our electronic system in one of two ways:
1. Fill out this form by noon on the Thursday before your visit.
2. Talk to a check-in volunteer when you arrive.
If this is a one-time visit and your family doesn’t need to be added to the electronic system, talk with a check-in volunteer when you arrive.
Snacks are a fun part of class that allows children to talk and interact with each other. In the Baby Nursery, Puffs are provided for children who are hungry. We are happy to feed your baby their bottle upon request. The Toddler and Preschool classes provide goldfish and animal crackers each week. If your child has allergies or food intolerances, you may request raisins. Please notify the staff if your child has allergies or should NOT have a snack.
During class, children are encouraged to be as sanitary as possible. Everyone uses hand sanitizer or washes their hands before snack time and after restroom breaks. The Tiny Valley classrooms and restrooms are cleaned regularly.
Toy Cleaning in the Baby Nursery: Toys are set aside after each service/single use and run through an industrial dishwasher before they’re used again. This keeps our environment safe for babies and families. This keeps our environment safe for babies and families.
The early childhood rooms are also deep-cleaned and completely sanitized every quarter. During the deep-cleaning process, all small toys are run through our industrial dishwasher. Tables, counters, walls, riding toys, kitchen sets—everything is wiped down with Shaklee concentrated Germicide Basic-G cleaner and extra hot soapy water

Extra Help for Kids
If your family has a child with an emotional, cognitive, or physical challenge, we can help!
"Bring someone with you next week" is a phrase both kids and adults hear often at Cedar Valley. We believe our church should be exciting, inviting, and life-changing, and we don't want to keep that experience to ourselves! We want kids to be excited about sharing this special part of their lives with their friends, which is why we try to make Sunday morning the best hour of every kid's week. Several times a year, we have special Featured Sundays designed to make it easy for kids to invite a friend (or more!) to church.
