Children's Ministry

Our Mission

To partner with families to teach and live out God's truth and love, so that, in God's timing, every child will have a vibrant personal relationship with Jesus Christ and both the passion and skills to make an impact on their world for Him.

In pursuit of our mission, we want everything we do to be:

Biblically Solid. We are committed to teaching the life-changing Word of God, and nothing should detract from the clear teaching of His truth. (2 Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 40:8; Psalm 119:89-96, 105)

Creative & Fun. Our God is not boring and neither is His house! We believe everybody learns better when they are having fun, and our teaching strives to captivate our children's hearts, minds, imaginations, and souls, accommodating different learning styles and levels. (Psalm 34:8; Psalm 8)

Child Affirming. This is a place where children are treasured and will feel loved, accepted, and valued. We believe that the Lord can use children to make a difference, and encourage them to discover and develop their gifts to minister to others. (Matthew 19:13-15; 1 Timothy 4:12)

Application Oriented. We are teaching not merely to inform, but to transform hearts and lives. We want every child to understand how God's truth makes a difference in their daily life. (James 1:22, 25; 1 Timothy 4:12)

Relationship Building. The most powerful lesson we can teach is through our own example. Our teachers try to make each child feel appreciated and loved, and we encourage friendships among the families in our classrooms. (John 13:34; Deuteronomy 6:1-9)

Vacation Bible School. (3 years to 5th Grade). Mon-Fri, July 23-27 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Welcome to Shipwrecked, the VBS where kids learn that Jesus rescues! This VBS adventure will help kids begin or deepen their faith by discovering that Jesus cares about them personally and rescues in life’s toughest circumstances. Classes are available for students age 3 through entering 5th graders — as well as adults! All preschoolers must be potty trained. For the 3 year old class, children must be 3 years old by the first day of VBS.
