Children’s Ministry

Children’s Ministry is for kids ages 0 – 5th grade and friends. We embrace the teachings of Jesus when he calls us to Love God and Love Others!

We have opportunities for families and kids to connect, learn, play and grow in faith! All of our programming is intentionally crafted for kids to hear and experience the love of God and live out that faith in their daily lives. 

Sunday School is offered during the 9:00 AM and 10:30 AM worship services on Sunday mornings for ages 4-5th grade. We have a staffed nursery for children ages 0-3 years old every Sunday.


Children’s Ministry Programs

Our programs are often split into the following age groups:

  • Sprout (0-4 year olds)
  • Shine (K-3rd Grade)
  • Thrive (4th & 5th Grade)

Sunday Mornings

Sunday Mornings are centered on Love God. In Sunday School, we are going to experience the Wonder of God and God’s promises, love, and joy for us! This will happen through engaging activities, curious questions, and crafty fun! We will be meeting in groups and getting back into the small group tradition we know and love! There will be music. There will be Bible stories. There will be learning. Most of all, there will be joyful exploration of God’s word!

Sunday School is offered during the 9:00 AM and 10:30 AM worship services on Sunday mornings for ages 4-5th grade. 

The first Sunday of every month is Worship Young, where we celebrate the gifts and talents of children in worship through children’s choirs, readers, ushers, and other worship leadership roles. Children are invited to worship with their families on Worship Young Sundays. 


Wednesday Nights

Wednesday Nights are centered around Love People. This is a time for community, connection, friendship and fellowship! We are going to play high energy games, have creative competitions, silly challenges and lots of laughs with friends, old and new! We’ll probably even get messy. There will be opportunities for service events to Love People outside of our community as well.  If you’re looking for something fun to do, Wednesday Night is the place for you!

Thrive (4th & 5th Graders): 4:15-5:00 PM
Shine (K-3rd Graders): 5:00-5:45 PM

Milestone Ministries

Passing on the Christian faith from generation to generation is at the heart of the life and the work of the church. Milestone Ministry brings an awareness of the presence of God in our lives and provides opportunities to celebrate these milestones in our community of faith. 

Currently, our Milestone Ministry celebrates three moments in a child’s faith journey: Frolic Bible, Story Bible, and Communion. 

Spark Story Bible for Shine
  • Instruction: Wednesday, November 2 from 5:30-6:00 PM
  • Celebration: Sunday, November 6, 9 AM

Children are invited to explore the Bible through story! The Spark Story Bible allows kids to wonder and become familiar with the Bible from beginning to end through 150 stories. Instruction with a child and guardian will teach kids and families how to grow in their faith together as they imagine, talk about, and explore God’s word.
