Children’s Ministry

Connecting the Church and Families

children's ministry

We have been blessed with many children—a great joy and responsibility! Our children’s ministry is a family-based ministry. This means that parents, guided by the elders and experienced leaders, are asked to help teach in our children’s ministry so that they are directly involved in the spiritual development of their children.

Children will first enter the church with their parents and remain with them for the first part of the worship service. After Children's Prayer, those 4th grade and under are dismissed for Nursery and Children’s Worship. The children will split according to age groups: babies and toddlers go to the nursery and children preschool - 4th grade go to Children's Worship. The nursery is provided for parents with young children that would like to drop them off while they attend service. It is geared towards babies and toddlers (preferably 6 months - 3 1/2 years old). Our focus is on providing care given in a Christian atmosphere. Parents who bring their children to nursery are asked to serve as a volunteer caregiver. They will also be assisted by no more than 2 youth volunteers. For Children's Worship, the children have prayer for offering and singing before they divide up into separate groups: preschool/ Kindergarten and grades 1 - 4. The curriculum of our Children’s Ministry is age-appropriate, Bible-centered and engaging with hands-on activities.

The curriculum focuses on:

  • Supporting parents in the art of teaching
  • Teaching basic Biblical themes such as salvation, sanctification, the nature and character of God, grace, and other doctrines
  • Modeling the love of God
  • Developing godly characteristics in each child
  • Instilling a Christ-centered worldview


After refreshments, the younger children in kindergarten and below attend nursery while children grades 1 - 4 participate in Sunday School for the 2nd hour. Grades 5-8 gather in a group called Seekers which provides an open and safe environment to share and be heard while helping to build a personal relationship with the Lord and each other. All classes are Bible-centered and age-appropriate.
