Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me, but the one who sent me.

Mark 9:37

Our Aim

We have many different ministries in place, so your children can find the best way to play, make friends, and most importantly, can learn about the wonderful world of our Lord.

Children ages 3 years old through to 5th grade can participate in many fun-filed activities that will encourage, teach and inspire them to lead a Christ-centered life.

Your children will also have access to a wonderful children’s media center where they can borrow books, DVDs and many other items to reinforce their Christian growth. We provide a safe, loving environment in which to grow and learn.


Sundays

Children’s Worship during 9:00am Service

*There is a dedicated Children’s Time during the service, after which the children are led to their classes.

Lower Elementary: Children, PreK – 2nd Grade, are led through age appropriate sessions concerning our Christian faith and the love that Jesus has for them.

Upper Elementary: Children, 3rd – 5th Grade, will be learning about Christian life through stories and activities.

*Depending on attendance, there are times when all students will be in a combined classroom (PreK – 5th Grade).

Children’s Worship at 10:30am

All attending children, PreK – 5th Grade, in Worship during this service are directed to the back of fellowship hall, after the dedicated Children’s Time, where they make crafts and listen to the service.

Toddler Room is available during both services.

Caitlyn Wilson, our full time caregiver in the Toddler Room, welcomes infants and children up to age 4 before service or at anytime during either of the services.


K.I.D.S. Club is an after-school program for elementary aged children (grades K-5th). K.I.D.S. Club meets every Wednesday night at 4:30pm. Every child is given a package either dropped off at home or picked up at the church containing a snack, lesson plan for the week and materials needed. The program will include a Zoom meeting, pre-recorded videos on YouTube for Sing & Play, Bible Stories, Crafts and other activities.

KIDS Club is on hold for now. Due to Covid we are not meeting in person at this time. Response was not positive for being virtual. We are looking for new ways to reach out to our kids. Check back for updates.
