Kids Ministry


Sunday Schedule  ______________________________________________________________________

SUNDAY MORNINGS, PRESCHOOL:
Safe and secure childcare is provided during both services. Visit the Kids Check-In Counter in the atrium to register your children for the Nursery (0-24 months), the 2’s room, the 3’s room or the 4 & 5’s room. Qualified teachers will guide your children through a morning of age appropriate games, activities and lessons.

SUNDAY MORNING ELEMENTARY:
Because we value both family and worship, elementary age kids attend the beginning of the service with their family. They will be released to be guided to their classroom after the worship part of the morning. Before the service starts, please visit the Kids Check-In Counter and register your child so they can be securely checked in and receive a name tag. If parents are attending one of our Adult Bible Fellowships, elementary classes are provided for the full service time.

Mission  ______________________________________________________________________________

Watching a child grow from a newborn, to toddler, to preschooler, and up through the elementary school ages is a beautiful thing. Each age and stage of a child’s life brings it’s own rewards and challenges. Knowing this, we strive to come alongside parents in order to equip and encourage them as they model their Christian faith for their children.
Our ministry for kids is made up of loving, equipped and experienced teachers who seek to provide a safe, nurturing, and encouraging place for your children. While the methods may vary, there are aspects of our ministry that do not change:

SAFE: We offer a secure, computerized check-in system and all our teachers are background-checked and reference-checked.

FAMILY FIRST: We seek to empower and support the family unit through clear and pertinent communication. Events held throughout the year are designed to open doors of spiritual growth for your family.

SCRIPTURE LED: All that we teach about has a place in God’s Big Story. Our goal is that kids will have a good understanding of God’s redemptive story throughout the Bible.

LIFETIME FAITH: Faith grows from experiencing the power of God in your life. This is true for kids as well as parents. We seek to provide a strong foundation of biblical knowledge in an environment where kids can encounter the living God.
