For babies through 5th grade.
Jesus loves children and desires for them to come to Him and so do we! It’s our desire to complement your efforts as you raise your child to follow Jesus and become who He designed your child to be. If you are a parent, grandparent, or guardian we are committed to creating tools that assist you to bring your child close to Jesus.
If this is your first time visiting our church - Welcome! Please stop by our Welcome Center, located right inside the main entrance. We will help you register your children and help you find your child's room. If you are attending just one of the hours on a Sunday morning, we encourage children age 3 and older to attend Children's Church. Younger children attend the Nursery.
Nursery (Birth - 24 months)
We share the love of Christ with your child by helping your child feel comfortable, happy, loved and secure in our nurseries. If your child is happy and well cared for we know you can relax and have the opportunity to worship freely. Beginning Sunday, October 7, the nursery will only be available during our 9:30 & 11:05 AM services.
Children's Church (3s - 5th grade)
Children’s Church is a large group experience that engages children through fun, age-appropriate opening activities, student-led worship, and a message around our "Big Idea" that bring children to a deeper understanding of God's love for them. Children's Church is offered during the 9:30 AM & 11:05 services.
KBF (3s - 5th grade)
Kids Bible Fellowship is a small group setting where children learn to navigate through the Bible, explore life application from God's Word, and deepen their relationships with their peers. KBF's meet at the 9:30 AM service hour.
Because child safety is of utmost importance, our Children’s Neighborhood is a secured area. Only parents and guardians with a Pick-up Tag for a child will be admitted to the area when classes are in session. Help us do all we can to keep this area safe.
Our Family Experience is a key part of our Children’s Ministries. Our Family Experience Gathering is filled with fun and excitement for the children while placing tools in the hands of parents and guardians to inspire meaningful conversation in the home. Our Family Experience Gathering meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 6:30-7:30 PM in the Worship Center (September - May).

MTAs (3rd – 5th Grade)
Ministry Training Academies release children to experience being a partner with Jesus in ministry. MTAs train children how to serve in ministry while simultaneously helping them grow spiritually. In addition to keeping upper elementary children engaged in church, it activates them to be a contributing member of our church family. Ministries include worship, audio/video/sound technology, photography, set designs, drama, puppetry, and games.
