God LOVES kids and so do we!  It is an honor to serve you and your children as we partner together in their spiritual growth! We want every child to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ; know God, not just with their head, but with a heart knowledge that moves them to action – to love God, and to love and serve others.


KIDS Connections This Week

Ms. Becca has many fun and meaningful activities planned for kids this week. Click any of the links . . .

KIDS WORSHIP  |  September 13

Do you ever use coloring as a spiritual practice? The simplicity can help our minds and bodies to slow down enough to stop and ponder the words of scripture. During our series on the Beatitudes, we will be providing a weekly coloring sheet that goes along with each of the themes. These can be used throughout the week, and not just for your kids, to pause and take a moment to reflect on the words Jesus’ taught as he flipped the script through his teachings on the mountainside.

KIDS WEEKLY ZOOMs
Join us for ACTIVE, ENGAGING, MEANINGFUL and FUN lessons that will help kids learn and love the Bible, as well as discover how God is at work in their lives and all around our world.

  • Wednesdays:
    • 6:00PM – 3, 4, 5 year olds (K)
    • 6:30PM – 1st-5th Graders

Each week we’ll study the Bible, learn God’s word in active ways and apply it to our lives as we look at how God is at work in us and around the world!  1st-5th Graders should bring a Bible to the call each week. We will be using the same Zoom log-ins for all of our weekly meetings, and the back-to-back calls, so please don’t log on more than a couple minutes before your scheduled time. Make plans to include this time of fun, learning and friends in your family’s weekly schedule!

THINGS YOU CAN DO ANY TIME:


We are committed to providing a safe, secure environment for all of our children. Nursery workers, worship care volunteers, and teachers all have been screened, background checked and trained in our child protection and safety policies.

Sunday Worship

8:50 am & 11:00 am | K-5th grade Children are a vital part of our worship. We celebrate inter-generational worship and intentionally seek to engage children in kindergarten through 5th grade in worship.  There are regularly scheduled children’s sermons, baptisms and parent child dedication services. To help young children engage, we offer worship bags filled with activities to help your children focus during the worship services. These bags are located at the entrances to the sanctuary.


Worship Care

8:50 & 11:00 am | Infants to Four Years Old/Preschool Children: Infants to four-year old’s will receive excellent care in their age-specific classrooms during worship. We provide a caring environment specifically tailored to the age of your children and we staff our nursery rooms with caring professionals and dedicated volunteers who have been screened rigorously. Classrooms are on the preschool hall located directly behind the sanctuary; our door greeters can direct you to this area where you will be met by a childcare host.

Volunteer for Worship Care


Sunday School 

10:00 am | All Ages Preschoolers: From the youngest age, children are taught about God’s love for them and others.  As preschoolers grow, foundational Bible stories come to life each week through story, song, games, art and more! Elementary Children (Grades K-5): experience God each week through creative, interactive, hands-on lessons.  Committed teachers provide a warm and friendly place for children to develop trust and faith. For games, activities and meaningful teaching tools, download the Bible Studies for Life Family App found in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
