Early Childhood Ministries (Infant/Toddler Nurseries)
In early childhood, we create a loving, quiet, and calming environment for our little ones to discover and explore. We love getting to know each of them, seeing what captures their attention, and watching them make new friends. It’s also in this place where we use a simple curriculum that equips parents and volunteers to pray specific blessings over each child, explore who God is, and try things out for the first time.

Preschool Ministries
This class is designed for children ages 3 thru 5 who are potty trained and have not entered Kindergarten. With this group, we help children to discover, learn, and understand basic concepts about God’s truth and Jesus’ love. We do this with signing, creative bible stories, and fun activities. We offer kids some free playtime to help them learn to interact with each other, as well as snack time serving Goldfish crackers.

Elementary Ministries
Kindergarten thru Third grade – This group is starts off with some fun interactive worship and then uses Elevate curriculum, which is designed to educate and challenge kids to try and learn and live out aspects of faith in God.

Fourth & Fifth Grade – This group provides pre-teens an opportunity to wrestle with the tough questions they have regarding faith and belief in Jesus. We focus on helping them engage the scriptures to understand more of God’s truths, and how they can apply these truths in everyday life.

Baby Dedication
A dedication is simply a time when you as a family bring your child before God and the church and publicly dedicate him or her to Jesus. In a sense you are saying, “I give back to You what You have given to us. We promise to try to raise this child Your way. We ask for Your help.” Baby dedications are done immediately following the announcements during the service, we invite your family and any other individuals you would like to include to come forward with the child. At that point the pastor will explain the importance and significance of baby dedications, then pray over you and your family, with the congregation in agreement to support you as you take this step of faith. If you are interested in this, please call the church office or indicate your interest on your connection card and we will mail you a form to complete to help us assist in planning this special event with you.

Family Room – This is a room where you can enjoy a live video feed of the entire service. If your child is having a difficult time staying in their class, you can stay with them in the family room and we will get some activities for your child to do.
