Children's ministries

These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

Deuteronomy 6:6-7

We believe God loves kids so we do too. We want to partner with parents in training their children to be followers of Jesus Christ. 

  • Nursery

    Our nursery is staffed with trained adults and youth volunteers waiting to play with your child in a safe, warm, loving enviroment as you have the opportunity to hear God's Word. We welcome your child (newborn to 2 years or older but not yet potty trained) to our nursery. Care for your little ones is available during our Sunday School hour (9:30 a.m.) and during the Sunday morning worship service (10:30 a.m.). If your child needs you while you are in the service, we will be able to notify you with our automated alert system located in the sanctuary. 

  • Children's  sunday school

    Sunday School classes for children preschool age through 5th grade meet each Sunday morning from 9:30-10:15 a.m. Kids get to know how the stories of the Bible fit together in one big story of the Bible, God's plan for redemption, in The Gospel Project for Kids

    Students 6th grade through 12th grade attend Sunday School in the Student Ministries Room.  See 6th-12th grade ministry page for more info. 

  • children's church

    Children's Church for preschool age through 5th grade begins at 10:30 a.m. Kids participate in the first part of our main worship service and go to their classrooms after congregational singing. Children participate in worship, storytelling, prayer, games, and other activities designed to instill Biblical principles in their hearts. 

  • awana

    AWANA is our mid-week children's ministry for boys and girls. Kids play games, participate in team competitions, memorize Bible verses, and learn what God's Word says, all in a fun-filled environment. Our Awana clubs are Cubbies (ages 3 and 4), Sparks (Kindergarten-2nd grade), and Truth & Training (3rd-6th grades). Awana meets Wednesdays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. from September to April.

    Through our Awana ministry, we hope to strengthen families, promote Bible literacy and help kids and their parents develop lifelong faith in Christ.
