Our kids ministry is a place where kids meet Jesus, experience His love, and have fun while learning to be more like Him!
Throughout the year, we have fun community celebrations like Back to School Splash, Harvest Fair, Breakfast with Santa, and the Easter Egg Hunt. Every summer, we have Vacation Bible School, First Kids Camp, and WACKY Camp. And we'll throw in fun activities throughout the year, too!
Infants - Age 4 | Grades K-4 | Grades 5-6
We minister to the little ones from infants through age 4, as well as to their parents, providing loving and safe care for our children. Childcare for our littlest ones includes teaching and music as we meet their spiritual and physical needs with Bible stories, fresh diapers, and goldfish.
On Sundays, we offer two different lessons, one at 9 a.m. and one at 10:30 a.m. You can check in your child at 9 a.m. before going to class and pick them up after the 10:30 a.m. service.
On Wednesdays, we offer care from 6:45-8:15 p.m. with songs, Bible stories, and time to play!
Bring your kids to the First Kids Clubhouse at 9 a.m. for energetic songs, stories, videos, and interactive lessons. At 10 a.m., pick them up and hang out in Fellowship Hall for "Donut Time" until the service starts at 10:30 a.m. Every week, we have a children's message early in the service. Following the children's message, kids in kindergarten or first grade can return to the First Kids Clubhouse for Children's Church, while older kids will stay with you during worship. We believe the best way for kids to learn how to worship is by experiencing it and learning from their families.
We offer a delicious meal starting at 6 p.m., and after your kids wolf down their food, they can play outside (under supervision) from 6:20-7 p.m. Beginning at 7, we have kids choir with fun songs, plus games and a Bible lesson. Then we break up into small groups for discussion and prayer time.
These "tween-agers" have their own special class at 9 a.m. to explore the Bible and relate it to their own lives. They learn what it means to walk with Jesus and take ownership of their faith. Through both teaching and discussion, the goal is “Equipping New Disciples.”
END Zone starts every Wednesday with some game time in the gym to burn energy and hang out with friends at 7 p.m., before coming back to the END Zone room for inspiring teachings. The adult leaders offer great lessons tied to video clips and pop culture references to address themes common to this age range. END Zoners love to bring their friends on Wednesday because it's so much fun!
END Zone Retreat
Every fall, we take a retreat just for our END Zoners. It's a whole weekend filled with fun away from the city on a working ranch, with animals, hayrides, cookouts, lots of games and activities, and an impactful time of growing closer to each other and making their faith their own.
Our sixth grade students go through twelve weeks of classes, plus a special retreat to study the foundational beliefs of Christianity. At the end of the spring semester, if they have chosen to make a public profession of faith, they can be confirmed and join the church as a full-fledged member before moving up into the youth group.
