From diapers through diplomas, our aim is to impress the greatness of God upon the hearts of children and to come alongside parents to aid them as they shepherd their children toward Jesus. Our leaders and teachers strive to model the character of Christ by genuinely valuing families and lovingly interacting with children. All of the Children's Ministry teaching and activities are intentionally designed to help children apply God's Word to their lives and to encourage them to believe the gospel, follow Jesus and enjoy and glorify God.
We Love and Serve Children by: Giving them a strong, Gospel-Centered, Biblical foundation including; systematic doctrine, scripture memory, church history, and world-view. We provide a positive and fun church experience, and help kids build godly relationships with adults and peers.
We Love and Serve Parents by: Providing a safe and fun place for kids. This allows parents to worship, study, and fellowship. We assist parents by modeling Christ in our teaching and relationships, equipping them with Biblical tools, and seeking to support them in their efforts to "bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord" (Eph 6:4)
We offer nursery care for infants, toddlers and preschoolers beginning at the start of both our 9:00 and 11:00 services. In addition, moms and nursing infants are welcome to spend time in the Mother’s Room where the worship and teaching time are broadcast onto a large flat screen tv.
Sunday School Classes (9:00 Service)
Children participate with their families for singing and prayer, and then are released to Sunday School class for age appropriate Bible teaching.
On Friday nights, during the school year, we offer Kid's Club for K - 5th Grade boys and girls. Kid's Club meets in our Fun Zone, where children can enjoy fun and fellowship in an engaging environment.
** We perform background checks on all Children's Ministry Staff and volunteers **
