Children

Parents, we offer a range of weekly and monthly activities to nurture your child’s faith. We offer Christ-centered nursery (up to kindergarten) and Sunday school and children’s ministry during the worship hour (K-6th grade). In addition, you and your kids can enjoy our special events throughout the year. Join in on the fun and fellowship!

Nursery (Infant – Pre-K)

We provide nursery care for infants through four-year-olds (up to kindergarten) each Sunday, starting at 9:00 am for the discipleship hour and through the end of the worship service (ending about 11:45 pm). The worship hour nursery care includes play time, a snack, Bible lesson, and crafts.  Five-year-old children have the option to stay in the nursery or join God’s Kids. Our volunteers are trained in best practices for each child’s safety and comfort. Parents also have the option to use our Gathering Room, a quiet and comfortable space with a live feed of the service.

Children (K – 6th Grade)

During the Sunday Discipleship hour (9:00 – 10:00 am), children from kindergarten through sixth grade have their own Sunday school program that features the Explore the Bible series. During the 10:30 worship service, children in this age group join the service for the first part and then are given the option to be dismissed to attend our God’s Kids program or stay in the sanctuary with their parents. On the second Sunday of each month we usually have a children’s message as part of our service before children are dismissed for God’s Kids.

Our God’s Kids program uses the Gospel Project curriculum, which is designed to cover the entire Bible in three to four years. The Gospel Project demonstrates how everything in the entire Bible, both Old Testament and New Testament, points to Christ. The curriculum includes powerful and exciting videos to help the children experience and understand the meat of the Bible. Check out these sample videos: Discussion Starter – Creation Video and Creation Video, and visit The Gospel Project site to learn more.

Special Events for Families with Kids

Throughout the year we offer special events for families with young children. Highlights include our annual Birthday Party for Jesus in December and our children’s Easter Party, an Easter egg hunt and craft party on the Saturday before Palm Sunday weekend. We also host campouts, inviting parents and kids to a fun night of camping on our church property, with games, singing, s’mores, and campfire. We also offer a one-week Vacation Bible School (VBS) in late June for children in pre-kindergarten through sixth grade. These are a great opportunity to welcome new families into our fold and share our faith with our neighbors and community.
