Children's Ministry

"Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.'” Matthew 19.14

Nursery (ages flexible based on needs)

The nursery is provided for the duration of the entire worship service. There are plenty of books and toys for the children to play with, and cribs are set up to enable nap times as they are necessary. Each of our nursery workers is carefully screened so that you can be confident that your little ones will be safe, happy, and have fun while you enjoy fellowshiping with other believers, worshiping and learning of Christ together.

E4:12 Classes

During the summer, we will be hosting E4:12 classes for all ages so that families can explore the story of the Bible together.

Corporate Worship: Age 3 – 3rd grade

As the sermon time begins, the children in grades 3 & below may be dismissed in two different classes for a children’s Bible lesson with some of our background checked, skilled, & trained children’s teachers. If you’d rather keep your children with you during the sermon time, you’re more than welcome to do so. We encourage families with children of this age to take advantage of the opportunity to listen to the preaching of the Word without distraction as their children learn from and experience God’s Word taught and geared to their age level.

Kids 4 Truth: Age 3 – 6th grade

On the first and third Wednesdays of the month, the children in preschool – 6th grade meet at our church building from 6:30-8pm for a time of learning, Scripture memory, crafts, games and other fun activities. It’s a great opportunity for these children to learn about the Lord, memorize Scripture, learn how to apply it to their lives, and build relationships with each other.

GC²: 7th-12 Grade

GC² exists to promote and cultivate God-honoring, gospel-driven relationships among young people, faithfully focusing on the Greatest Commandments (love God; love others) and the Great Commission (go and make disciples).

Our GC² group consists of young people in grades 7-12, meeting on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month at our church building from 6:30-8pm for a time of Bile study, games, worship, and prayer for the purpose of building relationships among one another as we fellowship around God and His Word.

Philosophy and Practice for our Ministry to Children & Families

One of the realities of life and ministry within a church is the presence and involvement of families and children. There are varying opinions among Christians as to how the church and families serve each other and function together. Some minimize the God-appointed role of the church, while others minimize the God-appointed role of the family. As with every aspect of church life and ministry, the Bible must be the guide for a church’s philosophy and practice of ministry to families and children. God has provided sufficient information in his Word to develop such a philosophy regarding how children are to be viewed, how they are to be instructed, how families and churches relate to one another, and how children are to be included in a church’s gatherings.
