children's ministry

"Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me,

and do not hinder them, 

for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

Matthew 19:14

As a church our hope is to partner with families modeling loving Christian relationships. We provide exciting opportunities for growth and learning for children of all ages. On Sunday mornings children are invited to worship with their families and attend Children's Church and Connections Classes.

children's Classes

"And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them." Mark 10:16

Thank you for sharing your children with us! Each week we present Biblical truths in creative and memorable ways in age-appropriate classes. We do this so that a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ can begin. Our dedicated volunteers take time to get to know each child and their story and share the love of Jesus with them in a safe and secure environment.

  • Nursery

    Our Nursery leaders provide more than just childcare.  We offer a loving environment and are helping these little ones learn more about God through play, songs and Bible stories. 

    We welcome infants, toddlers, and two and three year old children to our nursery rooms where they are pampered by loving volunteers. Our rooms offer exer-saucers, bouncy seats, pack-n-play and age appropriate toys. For nursing mothers, a room is available with rockers, changing table, books and toys. Nursery care is available on Sunday mornings, Wednesday evenings and during special activities and services.

  • pre-school

    We believe that young children deserve a special ministry designed to meet their developmental needs. Our goal is that all preschoolers learn these three basic truths:

    1. God made me
    2. God loves me
    3. God wants to be my friend forever

    During Sunday morning worship, preschool and elementary children participate in a Children's Message on the front steps of the sanctuary. After the message, children observe holy communion, pray and then attend Children's Church in age-appropriate classes. They experience God's love through songs, Bible stories, activities and play. 

  • elementary

    Each week we strive to provide exciting opportunities for growth and learning.  We want to instill a deep-rooted faith in our children early and we do this by teaching students:

    1. I need to make wise choices
    2. I can trust God no matter what    
    3. I should treat others the way I want to be treated

    During Sunday worship, elementary children participate in a Children's Message on the front steps of the sanctuary. After the message, children may participate or observe holy communion, pray and then attend Children's Church where they read scripture and  Bible stories, and discuss the morning message.

wednesday night wow!

We offer a midweek program so families can re-connect with Christian friends through food, fun and fellowship! Dinner is served from 5:00-6:30 and there are opportunities for adults and children to participate in choirs, youth groups, and Bible Study Connection Groups. Nursery is available for infants and toddlers from 5:30-8:00.
