Children's Ministry

The purpose of our Children’s Ministry is to raise up disciples of Jesus, by teaching them to love God so they can serve Him, and reach others, with all their heart, soul, mind and strength.

 

We offer fun, safe, age-appropriate ministry to children from one-year to 5th grade.

Children’s Programs

organized by age group

Little Tykes 1

In Little Tykes One, babies are loved, cuddled and cared for in a classroom with age-appropriate toys. You can receive a tag for your diaper bag and drop it off, but we’ve got back-up diapers as well. We generally offer Cheerios; please inform the Check-In attendant if you do not wish for your child to receive them.

Little Tykes 2

In Little Tykes 2, toddlers watch an age-appropriate video about God’s love, while enjoying a snack. Plenty of interactive play time is provided as well. You can receive a tag for your diaper bag and drop it off, but we’ve got back-up diapers as well. We generally offer Cheerios or Animal Crackers; please inform the Check-In attendant if you do not wish for your child to receive a snack.

Kingdom Kids

In Kingdom Kids, we use an Orange curriculum called 252 Kids.

Strategy

The 252 Basics curriculum is designed to shape identity through planting these truths in the heart of every elementary-aged child:

  • I need to make the wise choice. (Wisdom)
  • I can trust God no matter what. (Faith)
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated. (Friendship)

Message: 

The story of God reveals the character of God. That’s why 252 Basics is organized around key Bible stories that help kids discover Jesus and reflect His character to the world around them.

Check In

If you have kids, we’ll walk you to our Kid’s Check In, and one of our attendants will show you to their classrooms.

Pick Up & Drop Off

Children are admitted to their classrooms 15 minutes before the start of each service (8:45am and 10:45am.) You may pick them up at the end of service.

Security

At Check In, we’ll provide a name tag with a unique Security Code for both you and your child. This Security Code is used to identify you as the parent of your child upon pick up, but this Security Code will also be displayed on the screen if you are needed during the service.
