Children's Ministries

When children are surrounded by the love of God, when they understand that that love is uncompromising, unconditional, and unwaivering, they grow to depend on it and they learn to reflect that love onto others.

All children are welcome to participate in our Community Kids ministry which includes special events, Sunday school, and Vacation Bible School.

Kids' Sunday School

Sunday mornings at 9am (September through May)

PreK through 5th Grade

Joy: Helping others find joy

IWe can find joy when we remember that God sent Jesus for us, and when we celebrate what God is doing in the world around us.

When you think of summer, maybe you think of ice cream, pool parties, sunshine, and friendships, and it leaves you feeling joyful inside. However, not everyone feels that way. Whether you enjoy spending time with friends or family, finding people you connect with and who bring you joy can help to make harder moments easier. When you are having a hard time finding joy, try looking to others who have found joy through their faith in Jesus and learn from their example.

Sometimes we may need to look closer or in different ways, and other times, we may have to help someone else to do the same. In Romans 12:15, Paul wrote to the church in Rome about what true love looked like. Part of sharing the love of Jesus means showing empathy and being sad with others who were sad or joyful with others who were joyful. When we do that, we can help others to see not only our love, but the love of Jesus too.

Kids' Church

Sunday mornings during worship service (September through May)

PreK through 7th Grade

Kids are our future of the church, and investing in them is key to building a bright world for future generations. Setting a strong foundation of worship in kids from a young age not only sets them on the right path but also encourages them to be more productive members of society and share their gifts with the world. Kids' Church is offered to not only help kids learn the importance of Jesus Christ but to help them with their spiritual development and life-long relationship with Jesus. Kids' Church provides a kid-friendly message, object lesson, and/or activity that ties directly to the message being shared in our main worship service. This allows the kids to learn at their own pace and with a message that speaks directly to them.

While this is an important part to our children's ministry, there are times in which it is important for the kids to stay with their families in the sanctuary. For this reason, Kids' Church is not offered on Communion Sundays or special Sundays such as Easter and Christmas. Kids' Church is also only offered periodically throughout the summer.
