Ministering to Children is our Joy and Passion!
Our ministry serves children from birth-5th grade. Whether we’re holding babies or teaching preteens, our goal is to help kids learn to love God, love others, and go make disciples. We use DiscipleLand curriculum which encourages children to grow intellectually, emotionally, behaviorally, and spiritually. Kids discover, develop, and deploy disciple skills that prepare them to influence their world for Christ.
We believe our role as the church is to equip parents to love and to lead their children spiritually and assist in establishing a firm foundation of faith. We want to help parents become the spiritual heroes for their children!
In each age group, from birth through 5th grade, we lead the kids in age-appropriate worship, Bible lessons and related activities. They have the opportunity to develop their faith and build great friendships. Bring your kids for a visit! We are excited to meet them!
As in all our classes, volunteers are trained and have undergone background checks.
On Sunday morning, we have a nursery for birth to pre-kindergarten staffed with caring adults who love children - most of whom have children of their own. Because the safety of your children is paramount, we conduct regular background checks on all our leaders who work with children and ask them to attend annual training.
Most all of our parents of little ones take a turn serving in BabyZone so that every parent gets a chance to be in the worship service. While you're in the service you can worship and focus on the Lord. If we need you, we can text you or flash your child's registration number discreetly on a screen in the auditorium.
Our KidZone serves Pre-K-3rd grade children. We use DiscipleLand curriculum - a comprehensive Children's Discipleship System with a broad range of activities that engage all types of learners at every level of learning. Our goal is to help children know God more intimately, love God more passionately, and serve God more selflessly.
We also want to help parents become strong spiritual leaders for their child(ren). The DiscipleLand curriculum partners with parents by providing both take home and at-home components. Children ages 6-10 can extend learning through DiscipleZone.com where together you and your child can review the most recent lesson and prepare for the next one.
We know that 4th and 5th graders are beginning a unique time of transition in their lives. We think they're awesome and our Faith 45 leaders love to walk beside them during this special time of life. In our Faith 45 class, students encounter the Church as God's instrument to influence the future. Kids work their way through the book of Acts - reliving episodes of Christians who
revolutionized the first century and preparing them to transform the twenty-first century with the Good News about Jesus! Our studies lead children to discover how to walk in the Spirit, explain their faith, make good friends and be global Christians. We also have monthly activities outside of Sunday mornings to connect students in faith, in love, and on mission!
