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 is staffed during the Cross Training (Sunday School) hour at 9:45am and at the 11am service. Our volunteers provide a safe and loving environment for any children ages 2 and under. Parents are asked to pick up their children immediately following the service. The nursery room is available during the 8:30 service for any parents who wish to step in with their children but is not staffed at that service. There is an audio feed of the worship service both outside the doors of the Worship Center and in the nursery.
Cross Training Sunday School Classes
Sunday classes for all ages are offered during the school year for children and adults. Classes are in between services at 9:45am. 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. If you have a child ages 3 to 5th grade, register them here.
Explorers Children’s Worship
At the 11am service, children ages 3yrs to 3rd 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. 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.
We’re so excited to announce our new programming, called Family Adventure. Its goal is to equip families to be modelers of a gospel-centered life. The event will be held on the 4th Sunday of every month, 5:30pm-7pm with dinner 5:30pm-6pm. The night will be filled with Jesus, fun and fellowship!
Family discipleship is of the utmost importance to us, and we hope and desire that every child would be accompanied by a parent, guardian or adult family member. Family Adventure is about having an experience that children and adults alike can share in together. We hope to see you there! Register.
Vacation Bible School (VBS)
Join us each summer for VBS. At VBS, we create young disciples both in our church and those in our community. When the date gets close, more details can be found on the VBS page.
Mother’s Revival is for mothers of all ages! We learn together, craft together and do service together. We are excited for another season of Mother’s Revival for the 2018-2019 year and will post details soon!
To enrich the lives of our children, we provide quality literature and electronic media that focuses on God’s love for us and helps us grow in His word. Our library cart is available before and after Sunday classes. Children can check out items with their parents.
