Kids’ Ministries 

Kids are always welcome during worship! We have a special space for them near the front of the sanctuary, and we also offer age appropriate children’s ministry in the Nursery and Kids’ Connection spaces. We use Celebrate Wonder, a Cokesbury curriculum, that engages children’s natural sense of curiosity to help them understand God’s love. It creates a safe environment for kids to ask big questions, helping them explore the Bible in ways that feed their imagination and encourages creativity.

Nursery: Infants – Pre-K
  • Available 10 minutes before each service on Sundays (9am Contemporary, 11am Traditional)
Kids’ Connection: Kindergarten – 6th Grade

During 9 & 11am worship services. Kids’ Connection will be taking a break from our usual Celebrate Wonder curriculum during summer 2022 to do two special units! First up is a unit on the Lord’s Prayer where we will consider what prayer means by looking through each verse of the Lord’s Prayer together. Later in the summer we will transition to our Food Truck Party curriculum – which focuses on stories in the Bible about food and God’s provision in times of need, will bring us our focus lesson for Kids Day 2022 on Sunday, August 7th! Keep an eye out for more info soon!

KIDS456: incoming 4th-6th Grade

We’ve made some changes to our usual schedule for summer 2022, so be sure to save these dates! Our 456 kids have decided to do a series of movie nights as part of our summer programming – so during one session of each month we will be watching a Pixar movie together, selected by the group, and sharing in some fun together. Our second sessions each month will be full of various activities, games, and summer fun!

  • 6/5 – Serve Week Food Drive sorting
  • 6/19 – Pixar movie night
  • 7/10 (adjusted due to holiday weekend on 7/3) – game night and activity
  • 7/17 – Pixar movie night
  • 8/14 (adjusted due to Kids’ Day on 8/7) – s’mores night (weather permitting)
  • 8/21 – Pixar movie night and summer round up party!
