Children

Our mission is to be a loving community where students come to know and walk with Christ.

It is our privilege to share God’s love, and together with parents, to build a spiritual foundation that lasts a lifetime.

Our vision is to be one in Christ through:  

  • worship
  • Christian friendship
  • service
  • and growth as disciples

We are excited to join you in this adventure!

Worship

Child-friendly

All children are welcome in our worship services. We have created a child-friendly area for young children to have the freedom to move, to color, or to look at Bible story books during worship.  Also on your way into the sanctuary ask an usher for a "worship bag” filled with fun surprises for children and a family devotional called “Parenting Christian Kids.”

Children’s Message

Early in the worship service all children are invited to come forward for a special message on the day’s Scripture related to a child’s life.

Children’s Church

Children’s Church is an option for 3 year olds—3rd graders. After the Children’s message children may go with the teachers to a special program designed for them. They return to sit with their parent(s) after the sermon.

Nursery

A staffed nursery for infants through age 3 is available throughout the morning for both worship services as well as during the Sunday school hour. It is open to all who remain on campus, during worship. Excellent nursery care is provided by trained and screened staff members. As you leave the sanctuary turn left and follow the walkway to the classroom with the blue door in the preschool area of our campus.

Cry Room

A Cry Room with a view of the sanctuary is available for infants and parents. Feel free to use the Cry room during the worship service when you need to take a little break but do not want to miss out on what is happening. You will find the door immediately to your left as you leave the sanctuary. There are glider rockers and the option of listening to the service through a speaker.
