Our mission is to reach the kids in our church and community to communicate God’s incredible love for them and what it looks like to be a Jesus follower in a fun and creative environment where they can be free to laugh and learn.
“We see a nurturing church supporting and equipping parents to effectively pass on a living Christian faith to their children, preparing the next generation to be grounded followers of Jesus, ready to make a significant difference in their world.”
Newborn - Age 3
Your little ones will feel loved and taken care of while they're at church. Our First Steps volunteers exemplify God's powerful love by spending time and caring for our newborns and toddlers.
This is where the FUN first meets the LEARNING! In Jumpstart the kids learn how big God's love is and why it's so important to love like him. We do lots of fun activities and crafts to help the kids start to learn more about Jesus.
Your children will dive deeper into the Bible and into the practical application of being a Jesus follower. The kids learn about God's example and how THEY can be world changers through their example as well!
Our Soul Team is a group of passionate kids who love Jesus, love worship, and love pointing others to Him through dance and song actions. Soul Team plays a special role in leading worship at Kids Camp and in special services throughout the year.
what should i expect?
When you arrive at church one of our Kids Volunteers will help you sign in your child and direct you where to bring your child. Check in is one of the most important parts of Kids Ministry!
The safety of our kids is our number one priority. When a child is checked in they get a security sticker so that we know which kids we have in Kid's Ministry. This helps us to keep track of everyone! All of our volunteers have criminal background checks and have been hand-picked. We always have people on the lookout monitoring the spaces on both floors!
AGE APPROPRIATE MINISTRY
One of our most important goals in Kids Ministry is to create a flow in learning from the time they are in First Steps until the time the graduate high school! We want each of those transitions to be easy and seamless. By running a program and curriculum that is relevant to your child’s age they get to be a part of something that they will want to continue in as they grow!
Parents are the front line when it comes to a child’s growth both in faith and learning! We have lots of resources available for you to help encourage that. Firstly, it’s always important to ask your child what they’re learning on a Sunday. That will help them to remember and you to be more engaged in your kids faith. Secondly each child in Discovery is sent home with a worksheet that is relevant to the theme they are learning about that month. Encouraging them to complete those sheets, or doing it with them is a great way to draw them in on a weekly basis. Thirdly, The Bible App for kids! The Bible App for Kids is so much more than an app. Find episodes to stream or download and fun downloadable resources to help your kids fall in love with God.
