JK - GRADE 8
The Word of God is exciting and we believe it’s our responsibility to make it fun and applicable to their daily lives.
Our children’s ministry captures kids’ attention and ignites enthusiasm with ever-changing themes, exciting modern drama parodies, humorous puppet presentations, traditional Bible stories and interactive review games. You’ll be amazed at how quickly your kids can learn how to apply Biblical principles to their everyday lives and develop a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ.
CREATIVE BIBLE TEACHING
The Bible is the most amazing book ever written! We strive to bring its stories to life in ways that keep children engaged. We want all children to love God’s Word and understand the value of applying it to their lives.
Kids love fun! We realize that when children have fun at church, they can’t wait to come back. We value creating fun ways for children to learn about Jesus.
We are passionate about children learning about Jesus in a way they understand. Our environments and lesson materials are created based on the physical, mental and emotional needs of each child.
We believe that safety is vital as families entrust us with their children each week. Therefore, every volunteer is screened with an interview and federal background check.
