Welcome to Children's Ministry

We are excited to partner with parents and 1st-6th graders in their walk with Christ. Our mission is to build foundations of faith in children by impacting the child and family through Christ-Centered Ministry. We do this by equipping kids and families to know Christ, to grow in their walk with Christ, and to actively go and share Christ with others.

Weekly Ministry

LIFE Connection Classes / Sundays at 9:30am & 11:00am

Our Bible study classes are called LIFE Connection classes because we want to connect children to a relationship with Christ, and we want to connect them to other Christian kids and adults to strengthen their connection to Christ. We have age-graded classes and use curriculum appropriate for specific age groups.

Zone 56 / Sundays at 9:30am & 11:00am

Kids in 5th and 6th grades are invited to join our Zone 56 class that provides solid biblical teaching in a fun and exciting environment. This class is designed to help bridge the gap between the Children’s and Student ministries.

Girls in Grace

Girls in Grace is a mission-based program designed to give girls in 1st-6th grades an opportunity to serve the community while learning about and participating in mission projects around the world. This group meets on Sunday evenings from 5-6:30pm during the fall semester. 

BiG DawGs

Believing in God, Doing Always what God Says is a missions-focused group of 1st-6th grade boys that combine Bible and mission studies and activities with sports, games, camping, fishing, building stuff, racing, and tons of fun for guys only! BiG DawGs meets on Sunday evenings from 5-6:30pm during the fall semester.

Made for Praise

During the spring semester (January-May), Made for Praise meets on Sunday evenings from 5-6:30pm. This program for kids trains children in worshipping our Lord through singing and a variety of other elective activities.

Special Events

Parents Night Out

Each quarter we offer parents the opportunity to enjoy a date night or fellowship night with your LIFE Connection Class. It's a great time to connect as a couple or as a class. Check the calendar for the next PNO event. Reservations and a small fee are required.

Family Easter Celebration

It's fun for the entire family! Come join us the Saturday before Easter for a massive egg hunt, games galore, and special memories with your family.

Mother's Day

To conclude the Made for Praise semester each year, we love to honor mothers as our M4P kids lead us in worship on Mother's Day.

Holiday Hoopla

Early in the Christmas season we host this free event to help little ones celebrate the wonder of Jesus, who became God's gift to us. Serving as the quarterly Parents Night Out event, Holiday Hoopla also gives parents a prime Friday evening opportunity to get some shopping done or celebrate Christmas with their LIFE Connection class.
