"Growing children who travel life with God."
In partnership with parents, the Children's Ministry program seeks to create a dynamic, fun, safe, loving and spiritually-enriching environment that provides young children with the opportunity to discover God, experience faith and learn the life-guiding principles of the Bible.
Sunday Children's Worship
Children in Junior Kindergarten through Grade 6 participate in their own weekly high-energy, interactive worship program that includes music, media-driven curriculum, games and small group gatherings and communicate biblical truths in ways that will impact the children well beyond their time at church on Sunday mornings. Age-appropriate curriculum reflects the vision and objectives of the larger community of faith.

Teaching children the way to love God and to love others.
Reaching out to others in our community and beyond.
Authentic worship of God through music, prayer, stewardship and caring for one another.

Nursery care is provided for infants and toddlers aged newborn to 36 months. The large, bright, fully-equipped nursery is located on the main level just outside the sanctuary, while toddlers (18 months) join the pre-school area down in the lower level. Safety is a top priority and security procedures permit only the person who checks the child in to check him/her out of the nursery or pre-school area. A team of loving care givers is dedicated to nurturing each child physically, emotionally and spiritually. Children learn about God's love for them through stories, songs and fun activities designed just for little ones!
A baby dedication is a commitment to raise and nurture a child according to God's word and God's ways through teaching, example, discipline and prayer. Through dedication, the parent's commit themselves and their child to God and to providing every opportunity and encouragement to the child to make their own personal commitment to Christ as they grow older. Our congregation also enthusiastically promises to support and pray for the family as they raise their child. Baby dedications are scheduled during our regular Sunday morning services several times a year.
