With COVID, we've had to be creative in how we re-launched our Children's Ministry. This video explains the what's and the why's behind our re-opening strategy. We love our kids and desire to create the safest, most enjoyable and Bible-centered space we can for them. We also desire to alleviate the worries and fears of our parents and guardians so they know their (YOUR) child is safe! AS OF JULY 4th, we no longer will be requiring masks, but will maintain a safe, socially distanced classroom.
PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW
We want to help kids know Jesus, know the gospel, know each other, and know their mentors who reflect the love of Jesus.
Building strong relationships are imperative to the spiritual development of children. We believe that in order for kids to trust what you are teaching, they have to know you. We want your children transformed by learning Christ centered truths in what they hear, see, and do. Children’s Ministry is a series of steps, a developing process, to cause a spiritual alteration that will grow them into life-long followers of Jesus Christ.
We are currently using Lifeway Publishing’s “The Gospel Project for Kids”. When kids truly
experience the gospel, their hearts are transformed. It is the gospel, not good
behavior, which changes everything.

Ages 0-3 remain in their rooms 9:30-12, while all other children go to Sunday school from 9:30-10:30 and then attend the service for our worship time until they are dismissed to their second classroom during the service. Below are the age breakdowns and more info for each age.
Babies get to sleep, eat, and play in a clean and cozy environment with ladies that are ready to play, entertain, cuddle and rock as needed. We understand that your baby will be most comfortable when they feel their needs are met. Our volunteers are ready to make your child's first church experiences great ones.
These young minds are starting to develop and we are ready to start introducing them to the word of God. We will teach basic concepts through songs, play, and crafts.
At 9:30 AM the children have a unique way of learning. We offer a class for the boys, and a separate class for the girls. We appreciate God's design in how uniquely boys and girls are different. It also helps them form bonds beyond their defined age groups. Boys in K-5 are the "OAKS" and the girls in K-5 are the "WILLOWS".
Your preschoolers are starting to explore the world with brand new views. We want to encourage them to build their social skills with classmates, as well as introduce them to explore the Bible in various ways. They will hear the story, watch the story, and do fun activities together to provide hands on experiences to further explain the Bible lesson.
Children in grade 1-3 are in an exciting time in their development and growth. This is where a majority of their spiritual growth will take place, and they will really start to build on foundation principals.This age group will continue to stimulate their bodies and minds. As they begin to read, We start to add reading the Bible in class time, learning memory verses, and continue to use activities and games to further their learning. We also add videos for our visual learners.
In grades 4 and 5, we start to encourage a transition. In this final chapter of Children's Ministry we want to see children own and defend their relationship with Jesus. We offer opportunities for them to be a part of the learning process in the classroom, offer discussion opportunities, and increase the life application of the Bible. We encourage them to do independent Bible study and daily devotional time.
