Let the Children Come to Me | Kids are a gift, from their new life at birth to their joy and energy as they grow. We also believe that children are just as welcome as any adult to come worship King Jesus, since he himself welcomed them as full members in his kingdom (Luke 18:16). For this reason we encourage families to keep their children with them in the worship service so they can learn to trust, worship and pray to God as we celebrate his grace together. To help families with young children, we have two ministries located in our Children's Ministry portable behind the sanctuary.
Nursery | The nursery is open at the beginning of service for children from birth-2 years. You are welcome to drop your child off at any time during the service. Our children learn the foundational stories of the bible through activities, songs, story time, and playing together. You can sign in your child with service producer in the entryway of the portable on arrival.
Kid's Class | Kids ages 3–5 who are able to sit in a group and learn can start off in the service. The will be dismissed to a separate class during greeting time before sermon. You can lead your child to the class or walk them to the teacher in the lobby. Our preschoolers learn the love and grace of Christ through dialogue with the teacher, study of the Word, hands-on activities, and fellowship. They will return to the sanctuary when the sermon is over.
Resources to Help | We provide kids Bibles, clipboards and crayons in the lobby as a resource for busy little hands. While we recognize leading your kids in worship can be quite a challenge, we are also committed to helping you navigate and cultivate your child's devotion to the Lord.
We take your children's safety as seriously as you do. All our volunteers have been background checked (state and national) and interviewed before being placed on a team of at least two people. To further train our volunteers we also have begun conducting a yearly, nationally recognized, abuse prevention training called, "Darkness to Light." When you bring your child to the nursery or kids class in the middle of service, we will have you sign your child in with one of our service producers.
