We are thrilled to see you in person on Sunday mornings during our 9:00 am and 10:30 am services! Each child matters to God and to us! Our goal is to provide a safe, secure, and nurturing environment for teaching weekly biblical themes to our kids and fulfilling our mission to equip, inspire, and help kids grow to love God, love others, and serve the world!

Sunday School

Nursery - Building A

(Ages 4 - 35 months)

Nursery Sunday Ministry
The Nursery is a safe, caring, and fun environment where our dedicated volunteer teams share Jesus' love with infants, crawlers, and toddlers. Our goal is to help your child learn as early as possible that Jesus loves them and to enjoy coming to church each Sunday!

 9:00 am and 10:30 am Ages 4 - 35 months.

We provide age-appropriate rooms during each service. Infants and crawlers play and snuggle, while listening to kid-friendly music and books that tell them about Jesus. In our toddler classes, we teach a Bible lesson, sing worship songs, color, pray, and play with hands-on lesson-based activities.

2024 Summer Camps

One important aspect of Kids Camps is our Kids Camp Scholarship Fund, which makes it possible for all children (preschool to 7th grade) to attend camp regardless of the cost. This directly helps families, both in and around our community, who can’t afford to send multiple children to camp. It also supports kids from several City Ministries, who can only attend because of our scholarships.
Would you consider helping us reach our goal of providing 60 scholarships ($30,000) by giving to our Kids Camp Scholarship Fund? Every $500 donated sends 1 child to camp!
