This is where you find all activities for our Children
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 encouraged 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 familly 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.
Please join us at 11:00 am for our Kids' Worship time. We are currently using DiscipleTown curriculum and DigIn. Ages 4, 5 and K have their own time of worship and teaching. Grades 1st to 5th grade meet together for a fun-filled time of fellowship, energetic worship, games and teaching. The children also get to experience the adult worship once or twice a month. 4 year olds, 5 year olds and kindergarteners are learing about the "The Life of Jesus," from DigIn and 1st through 5th grade are currently doing a study on "How to Show Respect" from DiscipleTown. Also during our 11am serivce, our nursery is learning "What God Made," while the 2 and 3 year olds are in their own class and they are learning "What God Does."
