The core values of our Children’s Ministry are found in Luke 2:52 where it says that”Jesus grew in wisdom, and in stature and in favor with God and man”. Our ministry philosophy is rooted in the principles found in that verse. Our prayer is that children come to genuine saving faith in Christ and develop into fully devoted followers of Him.


The cornerstone of our Children’s Ministry is our Bible Fellowship classes. Children are challenged every Sunday to trust God no matter what, make wise decisions according to God’s Word, and to treat others the way they want to be treated. God’s word will always be taught in a relevant way so the child can put it into practice throughout the week. These classes are led by equipped adult volunteers who build caring relationships with the children as they provide an energetic atmosphere for learning.

Classes are provided for all 1st through 5th graders.

Here is how your kids will check in: 

Please pick your child up promptly after the 9:00 hour. You and your child will walk through the lobby, then down the stairs across from the Media Center, next to the elevator. Once you get downstairs there will be music and friendly faces to welcome you!  There will be kiosks in front of the rest rooms to check-in your kid(s).
