Connect, Worship, Grow, Serve

Children's Ministry

Our church has vibrant children and youth ministries that seek to create a healthy balance in five key ministry areas:

  • Fellowship- times to get to know, interact with, and care for one another
  • Worship- times to praise God
  • Study- times to reflect together on the content and meaning of the gospel and other chosen topics
  • Service- times to live out our faith in the congregation and community
  • Outreach- times to reach out to others in order to be a growing community of believers

Childcare and Sunday school

Childcare and Sunday school are important ways that we want to welcome you to come and worship with us! Below you will find information about Nursery, Children's Sunday school and Worship. 

  • Our Nursery is open from 8:45am- 12:15pm for children birth- age 5. We encourage children older than 5 to stay in worship with their parents and enjoy a Sunday school class during our Discipleship hour from 10-11am.  For more information about the nursery please click here.

  • Our Children's Sunday school has resumed!  Be on the lookout for updates and let us know if you want to be added to our email list about Children's  Sunday school by contacting us here.

  • Sometimes do your kids just need something to do with their hands during worship? Do you wish you had a quiet activity that encourages them to engage in worship in ways that are meaningful for them? Then our worship 'Kid Kits' is perfect for your family! Every Sunday in our entrance to 'The Well' contemporary worship space and in the Narthex outside of our traditional worship space, you will find red drawstring 'Kid Kits' for worship. Can't find them- just ask a greeter or usher and they can point you in the right direction. Inside each bag will be a children's bulletin, coloring pages, and crayons for kids to enjoy throughout the service.
