We ask that ONLY ONE parent accompany the child for sign in. (Look out for further information on Pick Up and Dismissal Procedures)
  • Parents will be asked to stand on 6 feet floor markers while waiting to check in.
  • Parents are required to STOP at the glass door (entrance to hallway) after signing in their children. Children will be accompanied to class from this point by Team Members.

Children's Ministry

We believe children are a blessing from God and we are passionate about creating an environment that is safe, age-appropriate, and fun where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way allowing children to grow in their relationship with Christ.


Our Children's Ministry is divided by age into three groups; Nursery, Preschool and Elementary with each having a time of worship, prayer, and interactive lessons.



NURSERY


The Nursery is geared toward children ages birth-2 years old. During your child’s visit, they will be cared for both emotionally and physically by our Nursery Staff. We love to show the love of Jesus to our little ones!



PRESCHOOL


The Preschool is geared toward children ages 3-5. Preschool Staff are committed to helping our little ones understand worship and encourage them to talk to God any time and any place. Our team will lead your children through a meaningful Bible lesson followed by an exciting, age-appropriate worship time. Our lessons are simple yet effective and teach the children how everything in the Bible points to Jesus.  It is our hope that these truths take a firm hold of our children's hearts and are carried with them for the rest of their lives.

ELEMENTARY


Each weekend, your children are invited to participate in a safe, fun, and purposeful time of worship and teaching to learn more about God. We are committed to helping your child grow in every aspect of their relationship with Jesus Christ, the knowledge of His Word, and the power of the Holy Spirit. Our staff have a passion for serving in Children’s Ministry and have a deep desire to see children know, love, and serve Christ.
