More than ever before, Kids’ Ministry is passionately pursuing the vision and direction of our church, helping kids grow in their faith, participate in community and serve others for the glory of God. More than ever before, Kids’ Ministry is partnering with families to help parents find success in their efforts as spiritual leaders. More than ever before Kids’ Ministry is pouring Jesus’ Living Water on children with the hopes those children will splash gospel life everywhere they go.
We Value Worship
Loving God through engaging worship is a regular practice in our lives. We celebrate worship corporately as well as living our lives in a way that honors God.
We Value Biblically Centered Living
A dependence on God’s Word is essential to our lives. It is our source for daily living and a foundation to the lives we live.
We Value Christ-Centered Community
Life change happens best in the context of spiritually authentic relationships. We prioritize community to create opportunities to belong, to grow and to live our lives in a way that honors God.
We Value Safety and Security
The safety and protection of our kids is paramount. We follow established policies and procedures to ensure safety and security.
We Value Excellence
Following the command of Colossians 3:23, we will do all things with excellence, knowing our work is for the Lord.
We Value Relevance
Through creativity and innovation, our environments and our teaching are engaging, age- appropriate and culturally relevant.
For the new or visiting student, check in volunteers will be the first contact at the kids’ security desk. We hope to have the small group leader introduced and meet mom/dad upon first visit whether it be the beginning or end of the service. We’d love to shake your hands and introduce ourselves right away as we begin to develop trust and relationship.
Children may not leave the kids’ wing for any reason without their responsible adult turning in the corresponding ID sticker to match the child’s sticker.
At the end of service, bring your white security tag to match it to your child’s tag number. Once this match has been made, your child will be dismissed by the classroom teacher.

Our preschool ministry consists of preschool-age children (who are potty trained). This area is characterized by medium teacher/child ratios (1:6), active play and where the Bible is taught through engaging bible stories or videos, fun worship songs with motions and movement and hands-on application activities.

A Christ-seeking environment is the setting for elementary students to build strong relationships with each other and their leaders all while learning about God through His Word.
Kids’ Check in
Our check-in & welcome team is vital to our success. This is where families are greeted; children are checked in and guided to their environments. Our check-in volunteers are warm and friendly and help our families have a safe and great experience. Our welcome teams also monitor the security of our kids’ wing during the entirety of ministry activities.
