PROGRAMS

Your child matters to God and matters to us! We want them to learn about who God is and who they are because of Jesus Christ.

We do this through age-specific lessons, small groups, and trusted adult leadership in a variety of programs!

  • Cry Room at the rear of the worship center
  • Nursery/Preschool (Birth thru 4 years) on Sunday morning from 8:45-11:45am
  • Sunday School (pre-school thru Jr. High) on Sunday morning from 9-10am
  • MidKids Worship (Kindergarten - 5th grade) during the pastor's sermon on Sunday morning
  • MidKids In Action (2nd thru 6th grade) on Thursday night from 6-7pm

MISSION & CORE VALUES

MidKids Ministry is a partnership with parents to help children discover Jesus in a personal way...

AND to live out the gospel in their daily lives so they will grow up to follow and serve Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior!


  • We believe age appropriate activities children help children build relationships with God, with adults and with each other!
  • We believe safety matters so every adult in every program has been interviewed and trained, and has a current background check on file. Nursery toys and surface areas are disinfected after each session.
  • We believe God has given parents a mandate to help their children grow in faith, so our role is to partner with parents.
  • We believe ministry is not "to" children, but "with" children. So we believe every program must be child-centered, relevant, relational, creative, fun and God-honoring. God's not boring; children's ministry shouldn't be either!
  • We believe children should feel God's unconditional love, so our discipline practices reflect God's love and grace.
