Our Children’s Ministry exists to provide a fun-filled atmosphere for children, ages 0 through 5th grade, to grow up spiritually. We do this primarily during Kid Connection, our weekly kid services, by teaching the Bible, who Jesus is, what He has done, and how much He loves us. In addition to Kid Connection, we also have other events throughout the year that allow kids to have fun and experience God in a whole new way.
Our Kid Connection services are filled with times of fun, worship, teaching and ministry. Each week, illustrated sermons, puppet skits, games, character skits and much more are used to teach the kids more about Jesus. By the time children graduate into the Student Ministry, we want to see them have a passionate personal relationship with Jesus and a solid foundation in the Word of God.
We Value Jesus
We teach that the Bible is absolutely true, is all about Jesus, and is full of incredible stories of how God loves and uses ordinary people. We use Biblical stories to impart a sense of destiny to the children, that God has a plan for each life and wants to be the center of theirs, by revealing His love, His character, and His will. And we pray for the kids, that they will embrace Jesus as Lord, and in turn want to give Him to others through the witness of their life.
We Value Safety
Creating a safe leader-child relationship is vital for connecting with the kids, and allows us to effectively reach each child. We also value physical safety and have strict policies regarding check-in/check-out, health issues, discipline, and classroom visitors. In addition, we perform extensive background checks and training sessions for our volunteers to ensure that each child is safe while in our care.
We Value Age-Specific Teaching
Kids are different than adults, so we teach the Bible on an age-specific level so they can understand and learn to apply these truths in their lives. Our teaching encourages kids to discover their God-given abilities, to love others like Jesus did, and to understand that God has a unique plan for their lives.
If it’s your first time with us, we are very glad that you’ve chosen to join us, and are excited to be able to minister to your child. At check-in, a parent information pack is available that will give you an in-depth look at our children’s ministry.
We Value Fun
We believe that learning about God should be fun! By making each service interesting and exciting, kids will want to come back and bring their friends. Serving God is fun, and we want the kids to experience this.
