Our classes are focused on introducing our little and big kiddos to Jesus and helping them make wiser choices, build stronger relationships, and develop a deeper faith. Both the First Look preschool curriculum and our 252 Basics elementary curriculum weave music, small group discussions, and creative activities together to reinforce one clear and simple bottom line each week so kids can walk away remembering what matters most.

You can find more information about what’s coming up for kids and families on Facebook. Like “Kids at Circle” for updates on what the kids are learning.

For families that want to follow along with the curriculum and receive helpful follow-up info to bring the lesson home, you can download the free Parent Cue app to follow along with the curriculum we are teaching! Check it out!
