Raising your kids to know and honor God in today's culture can be a huge challenge. We want to partner with parents to come along side them to help provide tools and opportunities to help their kids understand the great love and future God has for each of us. We look for every opportunity to introduce kids to Jesus and plant the seeds that will one day grown into a life-changing moment of decision to follow Jesus for the rest of their lives!
"Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it."
Here are some of the opportunities that are offered on a weekly basis to train your child in God’s Word while providing an atmosphere of fun and friendships! Please consider how each of these could be a part of your child’s life.
Sunday Morning Bible Study (Sunday School) – 9:45 AM
We have an amazing group of adults who pour their hearts into our Children’s Sunday School! There are age and grade- specific classes for all children from infants to 5th Grade. All our children’s small groups are co-ed gender except our 4th & 5th grade classes, which are divided into boys’ and girls’ classes. Each week is built to give children valuable time to interact with other children, enjoy a variety of learning activities, and be led in learning stories from God’s Word.
“Worship KidStyle” Children’s Church – Sundays @ 11:00 AM
We offer an opportunity for learning during our 11:00 AM Sunday morning worship services designed especially for kids. There are 2 groups available. The first is for Preschoolers ages 4-Kindergarten. This group meets during our entire worship hour with games, music, & Bible stories. The second group is for 1st-3rd grade boys & girls. These children join Mom and Dad for worship, then have the option to exit with our volunteers to experience age-specific learning during the sermon. Children’s Church is by no means mandatory for children, but simply an option for our families. Many families choose to worship together and we encourage that as well. Our Children’s Church is led by a rotating group of parents & adult volunteers, so children get to know several adults and experience different teaching styles. Children’s Church meets in the Education Building (4-K) and in the Children’s Cabin located inside the fenced playground (1st-3rd grade).
Sunday Night Children’s & Preschool Choirs – 4:30-5:45 PM
One of the most powerful learning tools in the life of children is music. The principles communicated and learned through music can stay with a child for their entire lifetime. This is the driving purpose behind our Children’s and Preschool Choirs. Preschool Choir is open to children ages 4 through Kindergarten and meets on the first floor of our Education Building. They learn music through singing, games, and other musical activities. They also perform seasonally in our Sunday worship services. Our Children’s Choir is for children in grades 1-5. Our Children’s Choir is always preparing for one of two yearly musical productions that are performed each year, in the spring and at Christmas. We encourage all our families to involve their children in our choirs because we understand the memories and biblical learning that can take root and last a lifetime.
Wednesday Night "Kid Connection” – 6:30-8:00 PM – Ed. Building
Our mid-week program for kids includes everything from snacks to Bible learning! A dedicated team of adults come each week to share with the kids a variety of activities including snacks, recreational activities, music, and Bible learning. It’s a great break in the week and opportunity for kids to reconnect with each other at church while reinforcing their minds with God’s Word. The learning is usually themed and children are working through a particular set of truths or scripture over the course of several weeks! We would love the chance to share Wednesdays with them while the rest of your family participates in student ministry, Celebration Choir, or Bible study with our Pastor.
