CHILDRENS MINISTRY

Vision: Partnering with families to clearly and creatively present who God is and guide children into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Kids Cove is a child-targeted Sunday morning ministry designed for children from infants to grade 6. Kids Cove 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 Kids Cove on Sunday mornings and experience our commitment to working with every family in laying a spiritual foundation children can build their lives on.

Nursery

Infants to 3 yr olds Kids Cove Nursery demonstrates God’s love to families by offering a safe, healthy and friendly environment while providing loving care for babies and toddlers. Parents can attend the worship service with the assurance that their child is well taken care of.

Jr. Kids

Ages 3-5  Jr Kids is a place where 3-5 yr old children are learning that God made them and He loves them and He will take care of them. Jr Kids offers a safe, healthy and friendly environment for children to play together, sing and listen to Bible stories presented in interactive and creative ways. They have snack together, work on crafts and enjoy one another. The children are loved and cared for by dedicated volunteers who are committed to serving Christ by leading kids.

Kids Church

Grades 1-4  Kids Church 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. The morning begins with games and crafts during Activity time followed by Large group time with worship and teaching. The Bible is creatively brought to life through drama, DVD’s, storytelling, interaction and lots of fun! The morning ends in Small group time where small group leaders challenge the children to apply what they’ve learned to their everyday lives. The children are loved and cared for by dedicated volunteers who are committed to serving Christ by leading kids.

56 Degrees

Grades 5-6 56 Degrees 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 56 degrees program, he/she will travel through the books of the Bible, chronologically, spending one year in the Old Testament, and another year in the New Testament. Two or three times each year, there is a Friday evening fun event held for the 56 Degrees Students and Volunteers.  This is a great opportunity for the kids and their leaders to spend time together, enjoying a meal and a huge game together.
