Children's Ministry

Core Values

  • Biblical Truth – The Bible is the ultimate source of Truth. We believe kids are capable of being able to know and apply that Truth. It is our goal to present Biblical truth to your child every time they walk through our doors and teach them how to apply it to their own lives. 

 

  • Safety – Our children’s ministry must be a place where kids are safe physically, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. We even have an electronic check-in system to ensure the safety of your child while they are in our care! 

 

  • Excellence – We strive to use our creativity, gifts, and talents to their fullest extent, always giving our absolute best in everything we do.

 

  • Shepherding – Kids need strong adult Christian role models to help them learn more about Jesus and to understand the Bible as they grow in their faith. All of our volunteers are trained and background checked. They are there to steer your kids towards Jesus and help them to grow in their faith. 

 

  • Community – Kids need Christian friends to support and encourage each other, and to be an active part of the larger Church body. We offer all kinds of ministry opportunities for kids to cultivate this kind of fellowship. 

 

  • Time with God – Kids are never too young to begin building good habits of prayer, Bible reading and memorization, and learning to listen to God. They will be encouraged to do so during their time with us! 

 

  • Fun! – We want Church to be an exciting place that kids can’t wait to come back each week, and want to bring their friends!
