CHILDRENS MINISTRY

Vision: Partnering with families to clearly and creatively present who God is and guide children into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. KidsTown is a child-targeted Sunday morning ministry designed for children from infants to grade 6. KidsTown strives to lead children to Christ and on to maturity in Him through a safe community built on caring relationships, small groups, relevant biblical teaching, joyful worship, creativity and plenty of laughter and fun! Bible lessons are age-appropriate, interactive and relevant to today’s children. You and your children are invited to visit KidsTown on Sunday mornings and experience our commitment to working with every family in laying a spiritual foundation children can build their lives on.

KidsTOWN GRADE 1-4

Grades 1-4 KidsTown is a place where elementary age children are learning about God and growing in their journey with Him, within a circle of authentic community and passionate worship.

CLUB 56

Grades 5-6 Club 56 is a specialty Sunday morning program, designed with your 5th or 6th grader in mind, to help them be intentional about growing their relationships with each other and with God.  Through a student’s 2 years in the Club 56 program, he/she will have opportunity to learn how to navigate through the Bible through meaningful and relevant teaching of God’s Word.  Grade 5 and 6 children are encouraged to listen to what God is communicating to them, and then to respond to him, thus discovering that we can be engaged in a 2-way relationship with our heavenly Father, His Son Jesus, and His Holy Spirit.
