Investing in the future

In our Kids Ministry, your children will find their way to God, connect with others, and contribute to the changing world. Children have the capacity to walk intimately with God. We will help them learn about Him and connect with Him through Bible stories, songs, and crafts.

Who's Involved?

On Sunday mornings during the school year, you will find a safe environment for your kids from birth through fifth grade. They will learn about Jesus and connect with each other.

Our volunteers are the heartbeat of our ministry!  Every volunteer is committed to making the ministry a safe, Biblically relevant, and fun environment for your kids.

How should I prepare my kids?

You start by registering your child, providing us with important information such as your contact number and any allergies your child/children may have.  Each Sunday you will bring your child to the general meeting room where we will gather together for music time.  At pickup, your child will be in their age-specific classroom, marked by signs outside the doors. 

Thank you so much for helping us as we strive to make our Kids Ministry a safe environment for your kids to learn about God.

"Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court." 

Psalms 127:3-5
