CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

What We're About


We’re here to partner with you, the parents, to lead your children to know, love and serve Jesus.  We welcome them into a safe, loving environment where their faith is nurtured through stories, play, active learning experiences and games. Our goal is to set God at work in their lives as we invite all generations into a growing life with Jesus Christ.


We have a safe environment and exciting programs for our children during the worship service and on Wednesday nights. Our nursery is clean and staffed by paid workers. During worship, children not in nursery go to their own worship experience, up through the 5th grade.


On Wednesday nights, we have dinner at 5:45 p.m. followed by programs for children, including lessons, activities, and a children's choir program. In addition, there are special activities during the year for children and their families.


NURSERY MINISTRY
Ages: 8 weeks – 3 years

Sundays, 8:50 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.

Wednesdays, 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

 

We welcome children, 8 weeks through 3 years old in the church nursery on Sunday mornings, Wednesday evenings, and for special services, whose parents are volunteering or participating in the adult programming.

 

For safety purposes, a parent of the child must always be in the building while under care.

 

Our nursery wing includes 2 rooms for babies and toddlers to play, a restroom for our smallest disciples, and a private room for nursing mothers.  Our nursery staff are primarily college students who have each completed an application and interview and have submitted to a background check.
