How We Learn:

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 other. 

What We Do:

Our elementary ministry is designed to partner with you, honoring God's plan for sharing our faith from one generation to the next. We want to maximize the way children learn by using a large/small group format. 

Weekends (during each weekend worship service):

Children begin in worship with their families to give them the chance to observe and participate with their faith community. Interactive, hands-on learning follows in their space to help them understand their place in God's story with his people.

Optional: You are welcome to walk with your child and observe to help your child transition. 

Wednesdays (September - April)

Our fun continues in the South Campus children's space (6:30 pm) with short-term EXPLORE opportunities - choose one, choose them all ... jump in when you can! Each EXPLORE topic gives children a chance to dig deeper - How does God's best way make a difference for me? Register now for short-term EXPLORE topics, September through April. 

Safe Space:

Safe Sanctuaries = Safety plan that shapes our ministry
Background Checks = Ministry team adults are screened
Check-in Kiosks = Matching security tags for child and parent/guardian
