Children's Ministries

Our Children's Ministries are uniquely designed for children through 5th grade. We believe children are a blessing from God and we are passionate about creating an environment that is safe, age-appropriate and fun where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way allowing children to grow in their relationship with Jesus.

We seek to make and mature young disciples of Jesus, who love God, encourage others, and serve the world.

Children's Message

After the short children's message near the beginning of our 10:45 AM Sanctuary Worship Service, children in preschool through grade 5 are invited to attend Junior Church!

During this time of social distancing, we will be sharing a brief message and a link to a children's lesson for parents to share at home.:)


Lesson: Heavenly Treasures…Winning in God’s Eyes (Matthew 20:1-16)


Lesson focus: Though we can become competitive and weigh our success on what others do, the Bible emphasizes that the grace of God is the only thing worth bragging rights.

A BIBLE GAME APP

FOR KIDS

Kids today love to be on their phones and electronics.  Since children like to play apps - Samaritan's Purse has introduced one for kids 5 - 9 that is fun but also encourages them to explore the Bible and follow Jesus!

The game takes your kids aboard a time-traveling spaceship and gives them a bird's-eye view of the Old and New Testaments, introducing them to major events in the Bible and focusing on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  In addition, kids memorize Scripture as they play, which is critical for their spiritual growth.
