We believe the Bible should never be boring, worship can be really loud and good leaders always care. Before kids head off to middle school, we want to make sure these three things stick…
– I need to make the wise choice.
– I can trust God no matter what.
– I should treat others the way I want to be treated
The focus in our children’s ministry is our small group environment. We want kids to see how God’s Word fits into their lives, to learn how talk to Him, and to build friendships that will last. That’s why it’s important to make sure your child connects with the same friends, same leader, at the same hour – EVERY SUNDAY!
Parents can relax and enjoy worship and small group times on Sunday morning as childcare workers provide love and care for their infants and toddlers. We have the same staff in each room every Sunday to provide consistency for the children.
Preschool Worship (ages 2-5)
We believe in an active, hands-on approach to learning with preschool children. So you can plan on a lot of jumping, singing, dancing, and laughter in every experience. Be on the lookout for fun crafts and big games. We look forward to helping your preschoolers learn more about God!
It is our hope that your child will learn:
God LOVES me.
God MADE me.
Jesus wants to be my FRIEND forever.
Parents can sign their preschool children in at the check-in station located down the ramp at the end of the pre-school hallway. Parents are given a numbered tab that matches their child’s numbered nametag. Parents present the tab for identification when picking up their children. Also, the number is used in case of illness or emergency to alert parents during the worship service. If a parent sees their number on the screen during worship, they should come to the child’s location.
Kids Worship (K-5th grade)
During the 9:30 & 11:00 AM Worship hours Kindergarten-5th graders are checked in at the entrance of the Bubble. Kids participate in a large group worship that include praise and worship, interactive activities, and a Bible story lesson that is meant to introduce the TRUTH, or Bottom Line, we want kids to walk away with and remember that morning. The second half of each hour is spent in small groups were kid’s connect with the same small group of kids and the same small group leader each week. That way they get connected and we have the best chance to establish a relationship that’s going to matter when they need it most. We pray that kids will see how God’s Word fits in to their lives, to learn how to talk to Him, and to build friendships that will last.
Confirmation Class (5th grade boys & girls)
We offer a school year long confirmation class beginning in September at the 11:00 AM worship hour. Fifth graders will explore what it means to claim the name “Christian” while learning the traditions and history of the United Methodist Church.
Praise Team: Kids Praise Team is a group of children ages 2nd-5th grade that use their God given talents of singing and dancing to help lead children’s worship at 9:30 & 11:00 AM on Sunday mornings. They practice and have a small group time on Wednesday nights from 6-7 PM in the Bubble.
Play with a Purpose: Childcare is provided on Wednesday nights from 6-8 for infants-5th graders whose parents are attending small groups. Bible study, games, and other activities are provided.
