Our overarching vision for children's discipleship is to see children come to know and treasure Jesus Christ through His Word. We believe the best way to do that is to help families own the spiritual development of the next generation. Thus, our approach to children's ministry is centered on the family - yet our hearts and our arms are wide open to receive children who lack a Christian influence in the home. Below, you can read more about what we do and how to get involved.
KidsConnect is a fun learning environment for children 4th grade and under that takes place every Sunday from 9:00-10:00 am. We play games, sing songs, and learn from the Bible what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.
Here are the ages of each class:
*Nursery - Birth to 18 months
*Toddlers - 18 to 36 months
*3 and 4 year-olds class
*5 year-olds/Kindergarteners class
*1-4th graders class
*Child care is available from 9:00-11:15 am for Nursery through 4 years of age.
*All children need to be checked in at the KidsConnect check in station in the main hallway prior to going to their classes.
