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.

  • fireproof

    FIREPROOF (5th and 6th grade) begins on September 8 in The Gathering Place and continues each Wednesday from 6:30 – 8 pm during the school year. This group is geared specifically to pre-teens and their friends. Each week’s activities feature high energy games, relevant Bible teaching, fun videos, and group discussion.  This year, we’ll be working our way chronologically through the Old Testament. This group also participates in our FIREPROOF Puppet Ministry. The puppet ministry plans and performs the children’s message for our Children’s Christmas Eve Service.


    Beginning October 3, FIREPROOF will also meet on Sunday mornings from

    11 am to noon in Room E-3.  


  • GRACE place


    Pre-K/Kindergarten Sunday School will meet in Room N-4 at 11 am on Sunday mornings.

     

    GRACE Place is our Sunday morning discipleship opportunity for children in 1st to 4th grade. We meet in the Gathering Place at 11 am. Why is it called GRACE Place?  G.R.A.C.E stands for “God Receives All Children Who Enter”. 

     

    January 9 - February 27           GRACE Place will be for families!

    Parents and grandparents are encouraged to join us for the first 8 weeks of GRACE Place in 2022. Beginning January 9 and going through February 27 at 11 am, the kids in GRACE Place and the 5th and 6th grade Sunday School class will join together to explore the answers to some important questions:  What do we believe? As a family? As a church? As the body of Christ? Some of the things we’ll be discussing are communion, baptism, our church mission statement, the Lord’s Prayer and ways to pray together as a family. Our hope is that families in all stages of their faith walk will join us for classes that will include sharing faith stories. Come learn about faith and family together!
