Kids Jr (Infant-Kindergarten)

We believe that God works faith in all stages of life. Our ministry to babies (birth through age 2) is focused on helping these little ones with very basic Biblical truths in a safe and secure environment. Our preschoolers (age 3 through Kindergarten) begin to experience more structure during their time at church. The kids enjoy learning through stories, games, and other fun activities in their classes. Kids Jr operates every Sunday morning 8:30am-12pm in our Kids Jr room, located in the hallway to the left of the Welcome Center. If you are not able to meet in-person, lessons are available online at 8:10 & 10:45am before our worship services and posted on our Kids Jr webpage Monday mornings.

Kids is organized in such a way that parents and children can praise and learn together, which strengthens the family itself and the family's tie to God.

Parents of our 7th & 8th grade students are invited to join us for a class designed just for them that helps them grow in their faith while also growing as the primary faith-formers for their student. We meet weekly in the Student Center Downstairs Classrooms 194/196/198.

9th-12th Grade Bible Study

High school students are invited to join us as we grow deeper in our walk with Jesus! While we go through various series throughout the year, each week we have specific challenges and next steps that can help us all grow in our lives as disciples. We are using the theme Pursuit throughout this year. We will be taking time each morning to talk about how God pursues us and how we, in turn, are called to respond in pursuit of a relationship with Christ. We meet weekly in the Student Center Chat Room.
