Children Ministry



Children


[Jesus] said to them, 'Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.' Then he took the children in his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them.
- Mark 10:14-16 (NLT)


Jesus has a big heart for children! So our goal is to love kids in His name and seek to lead them into a personal relationship with the One who loves them so much, He gave His life on the cross so they could have an entirely new life in Him!

We aim to do this in several ways:

1) We teach our kids about Jesus, through His word – the Bible. Beginning at age 2, our children begin hearing the stories of God's Word, presented at an age-appropriate level.

2) We show our kids Jesus, by loving them as teachers. Jesus said that, "By this all men will know you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." (John 13:35) We get to know our kids, play games with them, and pray with them about the needs and concerns of their lives.

3) We invite our kids to live for Jesus themselves, by discipling them. This involves presenting and inviting them to accept Christ's salvation for themselves, and to live a life obediently following Him, by the power of His Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:18-20)

At our main services on Sundays and Thursdays, we offer kids classes for infants through 5th grade, and periodic events as well – like grade school camp each Summer. We’d love to have your family join us! If you are interested in serving in our children's ministry, please contact:
