KIDS

Our Family Ministry is committed to supporting parents & kids by providing a nurturing and safe environment to learn and understand God’s love for us.

Our Preschool Ministry (Birth through Kindergarten) and our Children’s Ministry (1st through 6th Grades) each have dedicated staff and volunteers focused on the spiritual health of our young families. We also understand the unique needs of 5th and 6th graders and have especially designed programs just for them.

We want to partner with you to help you make those first impression of faith and help lay a strong foundation of who God is so that when the time is right, your child will be ready to make the decision to follow Jesus Christ!

On Sunday mornings, kids fill the hallways and rooms with excitement as our amazing volunteer leaders share about God and His Word. Preschoolers are on the first level on State Street and elementary-aged kids are on the 5th level. At either place, you’ll find a smiling face at the Welcome Desk.
