Children's Ministry

Leading children to be rooted in Jesus, to grow in His love, and to branch out to serve others.


Children in Worship

Worship plays a vital role in the discipleship of our children. We feel that attending worship as a family is the best way for children to learn about worship and its many facets. We encourage children aged 5 and older to participate regularly in worship with their families. Please look for the children’s worship bulletins in the back of each worship space. 


Childcare During Worship

Infants, toddlers, and preschoolers through age 5 may go to the nursery in Room E8 at any time. The nursery is staffed by both volunteers and paid nursery assistants. We provide care for newborns through age 5 during the 9:30 and 11 am worship services.

    This summer, kids will be learning from some of God’s smallest creations – bugs! Love them or hate them, bugs are a part of God’s creation. As small as they are, these little things can give us some direction on how to live a life that glorifies God. Each Wacky Wednesday will feature Bible stories, games, crafts, and a snack. No registration is required.
