Our children’s ministry is designed to honor God’s plan for sharing our faith from one generation to the next. We love the time we are privileged to share with them.

Feeling safe and secure, welcomed and loved, are the foundations upon which faith is built. Our childcare staff considers it a privilege to care for your child as they begin to trust, play, and discover their unique personality.

Weekends: Childcare is available during your time with us on the weekends. Safety and health guidelines have been established to help us provide a safe and loving place for all of our children. The guidelines we use are available from our childcare team.

Wednesdays: Childcare is available on Wednesday evenings for parents/guardians serving in ministry or participating in a teaching or small group. On Wednesdays, we meet on the South campus at 6:30 pm

Preschool children are full of curiosity and are exploring the world around them. They are discovering that they can make choices and can interact with others. They learn through play and by imitating the important people in their lives.

Weekends: Our time with your preschooler is designed to incorporate play into all that we do! The hour includes free play, interactive Bible story, and hands-on activities that reinforce the Bible lesson.

Optional: If you would like to have your preschooler join you in worship, we ask that you walk them to class at the appropriate time. Our Bible story and activity time has a delayed start – your child won’t miss the fun!

Wednesdays: All the fun and learning from our weekends continues on Wednesdays! Children develop friendships within this consistent group of children and adults. On Wednesdays, we meet on the South campus at 6:30 pm

Elementary children have hearts that are ready and open to knowing God. With guidance, they can begin to ask, “How do I fit into God’s story?” Elementary children are highly influenced by watching others.

Weekends: Our elementary ministry is designed to maximize the way children learn. Joining families in worship gives them a chance to observe and participate. Once dismissed, they hear an age-appropriate lesson that parallels the sermon series. Hands-on activities give them a chance to discover the difference it can make in their own lives.

Wednesday: We introduce small groups on Wednesdays! Large group teaching and games are paired with small group time with a consistent group of kids and leaders. On Wednesdays, we meet on the South campus at 6:30 pm
