Children are not stand-alone entities. They bring moms and dads, brothers and sisters, grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles. Each of these individuals are key to the spiritual development of a child. We strive throughout the year to provide opportunities for families to grow together and enjoy one another as well as reach out to other families.
It is our priority to ensure your child is cared for in a loving and secure environment. All Children’s Ministry volunteers go through a rigorous screening process that involves reference and background checks. In addition, our Hub provides secure child identification and security cameras in our rooms.
Caring leaders help make our nursery a warm, welcoming, and safe place to be each service. We believe that even our youngest children can experience God’s love. We strive to welcome each child, pray over them, sing with them, play with them, and pour lots of God’s love into them. We have stories, music, and a small lesson for two year olds to help children learn that God’s word is real! It’s exciting to be a part of imparting God’s love into the littlest of His Kingdom.
Get in on the fun with PreK-K! We worship together, learn about the Bible through interactive video lessons, small groups and of course, playing together! Here your child will build positive relationships with caring leaders who help them to understand the lesson through games and activities. We hope you’ll join us! Parents are always welcome and encouraged to serve and learn about Jesus with their child!
Our elementary area is bursting with excitement at every weekend service. Kids come for the fun! Music! Crafts! Games! And that’s only the beginning! Your child will stay because they know that not only is this a great place to be but they are loved and cared for.
Our lessons are created so that children in all age groups are learning the same Bible verses and Bible story each week. More importantly, these lessons are designed to help support YOU as you teach foundational truths at home. Each week your child will bring home an activity sheet that lists fun family activities that are based on that week’s.

Throughout the year, we hold baptism celebrations and child dedication weekends as a church. These are wonderful moments in the life of a child and a family! If you or your child are interested in being a part of baptism or child dedication, please click the appropriate link below to register. We will followup with you to answer questions and provide details on next steps. (Please note, these links are for children only; adults who wish to be baptized should contact email@example.com for more information.)
Every so often, we observe the Lord’s Supper or Communion during our weekend services. Children may see this and want to know more, including whether they can participate. We have a great resource available for parents that can be downloaded here to help you talk with your child about Communion. If you have any specific questions, we encourage you to speak with our Go!Kids staff or one of the pastors.
If you have children in preschool or elementary phases of life, we want to suggest an amazing resource that complements what your children are learning Go!Kids on the weekend. Parent Cue can help you reinforce the lessons as well as assist you in raising your child to follow the Lord. Available for iPhone, iPad, and Android.
