ABOUT THE treehouse

At The Orchard our desire is to come alongside families as parents lead their children spiritually. We do not seek to replace this important role of parents, but rather seek to encourage, educate and equip them. No one has more influence in a child's life than his or her parents, and it is to them that God has given the primary responsibility and privilege of investing spiritual truths into their child's life.

On Sunday mornings the Treehouse meets for children 3 years old through 8th grade. Children begin their Sunday mornings worshiping together as a family in the sanctuary, and then are dismissed to their classrooms. Here, our devoted teachers lead age appropriate, biblically based lessons through various activities, such as songs and crafts. 

We have 4 of our 5 classrooms open at this time... Nursery (birth up to 3 yrs old), PreK-K (3yrs old thru Kindergarten), 1st-3rd grade, and 4th-5th grade. Our Jr High classroom is not meeting at this time. Children aged 6th- 8th grade are currently staying in the sanctuary for the entire service. 

There is an easy at home curriculum for you as parents to access online. If you are interested, please email us here: treehouse@orchardmchenry.org.
