CHILDREN

MISSION

To make disciples of Jesus Christ in the next generation.


VISION

To give children a strong foundation for a lifetime of knowing, loving, and following Christ.


VALUES

1. Partnering with families in making disciples (Deuteronomy 6:4—9; Ephesians 6:1—4; 2 Timothy 1:5).

2. Teaching the whole counsel of God (Romans 1:16—17; Romans 10:7; 2 Timothy 3:14—17).

3. Faithful prayer and reliance on the Holy Spirit (John 15:4—5; 1 Corinthians 3:6—11).

4. Providing a safe, age-appropriate, and engaging environment to foster spiritual growth.



SUNDAY MORNING

Every Sunday, your child will be checked in at the Welcome Center and given a name tag with a four digit code. We ask that parents/guardians keep the matching tag for pickup. Our leaders have gone through background checks, training, and are eager to serve. We teach from Truth:78 curriculum, which offers great resources to use from home as well.

Life Groups

Life Groups are a collection of classes that span anywhere from 6-12 weeks for anyone who would like to join! When in session, Life Groups meet Sundays evenings. Once a Life Group cycle is concluded, we will take a brief break for a few weeks and then begin a new cycle of classes with new topic options.
