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/Toddlers (Birth thru 3 years) - Sunday morning from 8:45-11:45am
  • Sunday School (4 years thru Jr. High) - Sunday morning from 9-10am (summer hiatus begins 6/7/20 - resumes 9/6/20)
  • MidKids Worship (4 years - 5th grade) - during the pastor's sermon each Sunday morning
  • MidKids In Action (2nd thru 6th grade) - Thursday night from 6-7pm


MidKids Ministry exists to help children discover Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior

AND to live out the gospel in their everyday lives.

  • We believe age appropriate activities 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. Safe Child Guidelines are followed. 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.
