We offer a number of ministries for our children. It is the mission of Children & Family Ministry to connect our children with Jesus Christ and to each other and to support parents and leaders in their roles as Christian followers and mentors of their children.
Our nursery provides a safe and loving environment for any children ages 2 and under. This allows parents time to refresh spiritually while their children are read a Bible story and interact with qualified nursery volunteers. Parents are asked to pick up their children immediately following the service. Nursery is available during both services and in between services when classes are in session.
“Cross Training” Sunday Classes
Sunday classes for all ages are offered during the school year for ages 3yrs to 12th grade. Classes are in between services at 9:45am. Class are also available for parents and adults. We believe the faith foundation starts at a young age. Proverbs 22:6 says, “Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.” We’ve heard many testimonies of those who had a faith upbringing, wandered away, and came back to Christ because of the faith of their youth. Register your child today.
Explorers Children’s Worship
At the 11am service, children ages 3yrs to 5th grade are dismissed for an awesome, energetic and age-appropriate time of worship called “Explorers”. Children sit with their families through the 11am service opening songs and then are dismissed as a group to explorers. They return to the worship center near the end of the service to rejoin their families. In Explorers, children worship, are taught a Bible lesson, and engage in small groups of their peers with loving adult volunteers to help guide them in their faith journey. We highly value the faith of our little ones! Register for Explorers.
