children's ministry

We consider it a privilege to invest into every young life. We don't believe that kids ministry should be a babysitting service, but a platform for developing foundations that will set our kids up for God's very best for them.

kids classes & Curriculum  
 

  • Nursery (infant-2 years)
  • 2s and 3s
  • 4s, 5s and Kindergarten
  • 1st-3rd grade
  • 4th-6th grade (Club 456)

To locate your child's classroom, ask one of our friendly greeters at the door, or visit the welcome center desk in the foyer.

Our Curriculum:
2s & 3s through 3rd grade use Tru Ministry. This curriculum does a wonderful job of tapping into the natural curiosity of this age group and invites them to experience the wonder of who God is.

Club 456 uses curriculum from Preteen Ministry that focuses on core Christian issues relevant to pre-teens. Some of our more recent series were on Bullying, The Book of Acts, Stress, Friendships, Back to School and Being Fearless. 


Our Check-in/out Procedures

Your child's safety is one of our top priorities and we take it seriously! This is why we use an advanced check in system that allows us to securely care for your child and provides us easy access to important health and contact information.

Your child must be registered before you can check them in.  You can register online by clicking the "Register My Child" link below. If you prefer to fill out a paper copy, ask one of our friendly greeters at the welcome center in the foyer for the form.  Once completed, return to your child's teacher.

Partnering with the Parents

Ongoing information for parents...

  • Access your child's Homefront Weekly Newsletter.
    Remember, these newsletters are designed for you to spend time with your child BEFORE church each week to help prepare them for "The Big God Story" that they hear each week in their class.
     
  • Check out the Homefront Magazine. This magazine is a great tool to help foster your relationship and your family's relationship with God by offering just a few easy tips/suggestions on bringing Christ to the center of your homes.
     
  • Are you needing to talk with your child about a tough topic (death, divorce, sex/purity)?
    We have a great selection of literature to help enhance the discussion between parents and their children, all in a Godly perspective. Contact Jackie Goss for information.
  • 22:6 Parenting:  This is a great resource ministry from Lifeway Christian Stores that provides the tools you need to talk about God to your kids without adding anything to your already busy day. Built on the four key times of the day Moses encouraged us to use in Deuteronomy 6. The goal of 22:6 Parenting is to help you invest intentionally with your kids when you can and provide the community to help you do just that.
  • Dr. Josh + Christi Straub:
    Our Children's Ministry is a huge supporter of the ministry of Dr. Joshua + Christi Straub. Dr. Straub is a Child Psychologist, author & family advocate and along with his wife, Christi, their ministry offers lots of great resources focusing on family wellness.
