Children Ministry

Children Ministry

Our goal is to partner with parents to help each child become the person God intended him or her to be. In our classrooms, you will find volunteers who will love your kids, sharing lessons that are experiential, fun and relevant. We strive to keep the lessons simple and clear so that kids walk away with a message that will stick with them. We also share resources, lessons, tips and curriculum to help you extend their learning from church into the home. And, we want to hear what you are doing and what we can do to help you.

Together we can lead our children to become disciples of Jesus Christ who will love God, love others and serve the world. Our Children Ministry are Family Focused- we desire to connect families with each other and equip parents on the journey of faith.

FIRST-TIME GUESTS

If you are attending worship with us for the first time, we use an sign-in sheet to help know who is joining us today and if the children have any allergies or special needs. Please stop by one of our Connecting Points and a volunteer will be happy to take you to the Children’s Ministry area.

Sunday School

Sundays 9:30 AM & 5:00 PM | Ages 4 - 5th Grade

9:30 AM Worship Service

Sunday School is 9:30 - 10:30 at which time the children are then sent into the Sanctuary to experience and enjoy some worship time with their families.

5:00PM Worship Service - The Journey

Sunday School is 5:00 - 5:30 at which time the children are then sent into the Sanctuary to experience and enjoy some worship time with their families.  The kids are welcome to join their parents during communion, which is offered every week.

Our classes based on age groups: 4 year old - Kindergarten, 1st - 3rd Grade, & 4th - 5th Grade.

We strive to help each child develop a relationship with Jesus Christ and develop a loving personal relationship with each child.

We create "relational-driven curriculum" that follows along with Sermon series that is being taught in the adult worship service. - In other words, what parents learn in the Service is similar to what our kids are experiencing during Sunday School, but in an age-appropriate way! We believe there is great benefit to providing families opportunities to worship together. By connecting the curriculum and experience of adults and children, families are given the opportunity to grow spiritually together throughout the week. We do realize that throughout the year, there will be a few Sermon series that might not be appropriate for kids. During these times, the curriculum for the children will come from a list of core topics that we believe kids should learn over and over again as they continue to grow in their knowledge and love for God.

The kids meet in both large and small group settings depending on the lesson for the week.
