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.


JOURNEY WITH JESUS

Start Your Journey with Jesus with a Pancake meal! Eat pancakes and open your Lent boxes and read all the materials. Talk about how your family will plan to intentionally grow in how you know and follow Jesus over the next 40 days. Use the tools and resources within the box, as well as make a plan to watch the Bible story videos together. Let the Journey with Jesus begin!

  • SIGN-UP NOW — Journey with Jesus Videos – Families are invited to sign up to lead one of the short Bible story videos that will be sent out to families each MWF during Lent. Sign up here!
  • Journey With Jesus boxes — If you did not receive a box and would like one, please contact Becca to connect and get yours today!

Stories of Jesus | Told by Kids & Families…
This week the Woodruff family tells the story of Jesus healing the paralyzed man found in Matthew 9:1-8 & Mark 2:1-12. Come along with them as we journey with Jesus through Lent.


KIDS Connections This Week

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

WONDER AND WISDOM – A study in Psalms and Proverbs

  • Wednesday evening via Zoom
  • 6:00PM | Preschoolers — Parents & friends are welcome to join
  • 6:30PM | Children — Bring an NIV version Bible to the Zoom call. Invite a friend to meet you on zoom for this fun weekly time together!

Join us for Wonder and Wisdom as we study Psalms and Proverbs! The Psalms are full of feelings and show us how to express ourselves to God. They also help us praise God and wonder as we come to understand more about God and how much God loves us. Proverbs help teach us how God wants us to live. They help us explore what loving God and loving others looks like in our daily lives.  As we zoom through Psalms and Proverbs together, we’ll focus on social-emotional learning and health as well as creative modes of expression in these strange times, and of course, we’ll have fun! If your child has never participated in our weekly Zooms, now is a wonderful time to jump into a new series in a new year!

KIDS WORSHIP

Children learn by repetition. You are encouraged to watch the Children’s Sermon several times during the week, talking about the scripture and teaching and how it applies to everyday living. Click the video above to view the Children’s Sermon for this week.

MEMORY VERSES HELPS

  • Verse Cards — Print these verse cards for your child to hang up in his or her workspace. Find it HERE!

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.
