Children learn about God and draw closer to Jesus through active play and learning through games, activities, and crafts using God's Word to shape it all. We believe learning about God is best made through connections: connection to our leaders, connection to the Bible, and connection to each other.
Gear Up for Kids' Summer Sundays Starting June 12!
Summer looks different for families, so, of course, it looks different at church! All ages are invited to join us in the Pier Room for worship and an exciting Bible Story time! Then, we break up into smaller mixed age groups to apply our story through discussion, games, crafts, and activities.
Why mixed ages?
- It gives older children a chance to embrace and develop leadership/mentorship skills.
- It resembles a family group which is where we hope that children will explore and learn more about their faith.
- Younger children often rise to the expectations of being with older children.
- It actually helps cut down on discipline problems.
We hope that you will make plans to join us this summer as we dive deep into our faith!

11:00 am Worship Services
To worship together as a family is truly a blessing. On the first Sunday of each month, we intentionally do not offer Children’s Church so families may worship and celebrate Holy Communion together. We encourage you to make the most of this opportunity to be a positive influence on your children. Teach them how to participate in all the elements of “Big Church” worship - be their example. Proverbs 22:6 says: Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. Please know that your children are always welcome in all our worship services—and not just on the first Sunday of the month! It’s a precious thing to hear their sweet voices praising God.
On the remaining Sundays, children ages 4 years - 6th grade are welcome to attend Children’s Church during the 11:00 worship services (Children’s Church is not held during the 8:30 service). Children will attend the first portion of worship with their family and then be dismissed and escorted by Children’s Ministry leaders to the Fellowship Hall in the Christian Life Center. They can be picked up from the Fellowship Hall immediately following the worship services. Our 5th & 6th graders get to embrace a leadership role during this time and often help lead worship and assist kids with younger activities.
We happily welcome youth and adult volunteers to help us with Children's Church.
