Children are important to Jesus, and they are important to us. We want to help parents in their efforts to connect their kids to Christ. We strive to do this through Nurture, Outreach, and Worship (N.O.W.). Click on colored text for more information about our various ministries.


KidsN.O.W. Bible Study at 9:15  This is where our primary nurture and worship takes place on Sunday. All kids in kindergarten to fifth grade start out in the Kid Zone where we begin with a large group time of praise and worship music--encouraging the children to worship our Lord through song. Then we move to grade-divided small groups for Bible lesson, review and application to nurture the kids by helping them to relate to Christ in a way that makes sense for their age. We encourage outreach by engaging in special mission projects at various times during the year.

Kids in Church at 10:30 All kids age 4 through 5th grade are invited to join their parents for worship so they can participate more fully in the body life of our church. We have a special Kids Bulletin (and a treat for those who complete it). We do offer Kids Church during the message for children from age 4 to 2nd grade for families who prefer that option. They will be dismissed from the service just before the sermon. This provides further opportunity for nurture and growth as they continue to learn more about God and His Word.

Nursery and Preschool There is safe, nurturing child care available at both times for infants through age 4.
