CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE

We believe that even the smallest in God’s kingdom have a lot to offer in this world. We desire to see children transformed through Jesus Christ in order to, in turn, transform the world in which they live. They are our future.

Contact Pastor Rob Tuma for more information or if you have any questions.

SUNDAYS / 9am & 10:30am

NURSERY (6 weeks – 24 months)

Our Nursery is a wonderful nurturing environment for your little one to begin forming first impressions about church and God through music and play. The Nursery is open during both services.

PRESCHOOL (2 YEARS – PRE-K)

The Early Childhood Ministry Team is committed to loving Preschoolers into learning about God. On Sunday mornings, your Preschoolers have the opportunity to explore Bible-based truths about God and Jesus.

ELEMENTARY (K – 5TH GRADE)

K-2nd Grades get to experience Large Group at 9am, while 3rd-5th Grades experience Small Groups. At 10:30am the age groups switch, and the K-2nd Grades experience Small Groups while 3rd-5th Grades experience Large Group.

Wednesdays / 6:30pm

NURSERY (6 weeks – 24 months)

The nursery is available each week.

PRESCHOOL (2 YEARS – PRE-K)

Preschoolers will start in their classrooms where they will hear the lesson for the week and participate in activities that reinforce the lesson. They will get to then worship where they sing and learn their memory verse. This age group goes to the Fun Factory to play each week.

ELEMENTARY (K – 5TH GRADE)

Kids will participate in 3 rotations. They will all start with Large Group where they will worship and hear a message from the Bible. Then they will move into a time of Recreation and Fun. They will end the night with Small Groups, where they will discuss our message and memorize Scripture.

*Wednesday nights are only from January 17 – May 7.

Be sure to join us this summer as kids will grab their megaphones, lace up their cleats, and tune up their instruments. As they fill up the offensive line, sideline, and drumline, your players, cheerleaders, and band members will realize God has given them His ultimate playbook. He wants them to join His team, train hard, celebrate salvation, and encourage one another.
