Children’s Ministry and Nursery
Shaping Future Generations
Nursery (0-24 months) | We love your babies! Nurseries are available upstairs for children ages 0-24 months. Because we encourage having all ages together in worship, you are welcome to keep your little ones with you until the welcome break before the sermon, at which time you may take them to their classroom. Or, if you prefer, you may drop them off before the service.
Younger Children's Discipleship (2-5 yrs) | Jesus loves children! So much so that he wants them to learn about him in terms they can understand! During the welcome break before the sermon, please lead your 2 to 5 year old to their very own Children's Church upstairs. You may pick your child up after the service.
Older Children's Discipleship (1st - 5th grade) | Discipling the next generation is vital! During the welcome break before the sermon, all 1st - 5th graders may go upstairs for their very own discipleship class. You may pick your child up after the service.
Why is Children's Ministry so important? Because the greatest need of the next generation is to know and value the infinite worth of God. We want to saturate them with the Word of God so they will treasure Jesus as the only One who saves and satisfies hearts!
