    January 2022 Covid Policy:

    In light of  the many Covid cases that have occurred since Christmas, we are  requesting the following: 
    If possible, check your child/children's temperature. If is 99.6  degrees or over, please allow them to stay home and rest. 
    We will continue to check temperatures here at the church. If your child has a temperature of 99.6 we will ask you to wait outside the current classrooms for 5-10 minutes. At that point, we will recheck them. If it is 99.6 or above we will request that your child not attend classes that day or evening. We have bags of activities that we
    will offer you for your child/children. 
    We will also request that your child/children wear a mask for the rest of January. We are asking all the staff to use these same precautions. 
    If you come without a mask, we have some available. 
    We will try our best to safely distance while your children are in our care. Please understand that there are some activities that will cause us to be creative in distancing. 
    We love your children and want them to be safe, as well as, continue their growth in the Lord, We do not anticipate this going past January, however, we want to be cautious! 


    Our DiscipleTown store is open the 4th Sunday of each month immediately following the 11am service.

  • IGNITE

    It is the goal of the children's ministry to ignite a love of Christ in every child. Our mission is to teach the kids to "Know, See and Feel God through knowledge, character and conduct." We would like for each and every child to experience the unconditional love Christ has for them. We believe this is experienced through loving children, helping them grow in their faith through Biblical teaching, experiencing the fun and excitement of living for Christ, and showing them practical ways to grow spiritually. We want every child to learn how important they are to the family of God, and that even at their age they can make a difference. This is accomplished through many opportunities to serve weekly as well as participate in varied ministry projects. We want children and their families to know that Christ has died and was raised for them, and be able to understand and know the grace of becoming a new creation in Christ.


    Our Vision: Loving God, Loving His Family, Serving Christ (Love in Action)

AWANA stands for Approved Workmen are not Ashamed from 2 Timothy 2:15. We have classes for infants to 5th grade. The age breakdowns are as follows: Puggles - infant to 3, Cubbies - ages 4 through K, Sparks - 1st and 2nd grades, T&T Ultimate Adventure - 3rd and 4th grades and T&T Ultimate Challenge - 5th grade. Each week we have a time of fellowship, Biblical lessons, exciting and action packed games, and time for hiding God's word in your heart. Individual awards can be earned weekly as well as team awards. Most AWANA books are work on your pace books so each child progresses as they wish. We also have exciting theme nights, birthday celebrations and AWANA store nights where kids can spend the AWANA "bucks" they earn to purchase fun and educational items.
