Bible Study: Infants - Sixth Grade
Sundays will never be the same! We invite your kids to a new and exciting way to experience God. Each week your kids will draw closer to Jesus through hands-on active Bible study with our caring and gifted leaders. This will be a time packed full of fun for your child with praise and worship, great stories from the Bible, creative skits, games and activities, and fun with friends.
Pre-K Praise: Preschool
Pre-K Praise meets in Room 116 of the Education Building, on the blue hallway. Kids gather together to experience large group music and worship, Bible teaching through stories and small group activity stations. If your child attends 9:00 am Bible Study, they will be taken directly to Pre-K Praise for the 10:15 hour.
Hallelujah House: Kindergarten - First Grade
Hallelujah House meets in Room A-120 of the MAC (gym). Imagine a room JUST for kids... with a barn, farmhouse, silo, country store, post office, and theatre stage... a room full of fun things for kids to do, see, touch & experience! And then imagine phenomenal, fun leaders who bring it all to life through their wacky alter-egos: Rowdy & Red, and SuperChick & SuperDude! Add to it a host of volunteers with a passion for helping children gain wisdom and understanding in foundational Biblical truths... and well, you’ve got Hallelujah House! With large-group worship and praise that is full of energy and fun songs, skits, videos and puppets that come to life, Hallelujah House is always a favorite time for the kids and is certain to hold great truths!! And with every child as part of a small group, kids are sure to make friends and get a ton of care and love from their small group leader.
The WORD: Second Grade - Sixth Grade
The WORD meets in Room 1204 on the second floor of the Children's Building. Every Sunday the kids are challenged to worship God with all of their life! Our desire in the Word is that the kids will learn to love one another like Jesus taught, that they will apply His truths to their lives, and commit to a life of serving Him! During Gravitate Time kids get to hang out in “The Alley” - a cool space where they can catch up with leaders and friends, play games, air hockey, foosball, and even do crafts! ElevateTime: This is when the kids experience a powerful time of worship, learn about God’s WORD through drama, videos, music, teaching, and other crazy attention-getting methods! Navigate Time: Kids meet in small groups with their leaders, with the focus being to build relationships through discussions, activities and prayer. The Word is a great, safe, fun and inviting ministry for kids of all backgrounds! Whether or not they have been in church since birth or just beginning ...this is the place for KIDS!
Sunday evenings offer unique and amazing ministries for your kids to get grounded in the Word while making lasting friendships and having a great time! Kids may choose to either participate in Awana Clubs or Bible Buddies/Bible Drill.

Awana Clubs teach kids that God is real, that He loves them and that He has expressed that love through Jesus Christ. Kids also learn how God can help them in their daily lives. Lessons from the Bible teach them how to honor God in a sinful world. The goal of Awana Clubs is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him. This is the end result, but the method is FUN!

The Kids' Music ministry is an exciting praise and worship experience that will have your kids wanting to come and bring their friends! If your kid loves music and loves to move and sing, they will love being part of this group! The preschool choirs includes ages three through kindergarten, and the kids' choir includes first-sixth grades. Several times during the year they will lead in Sunday morning worship services, and in the spring, the First-Sixth Grade choir presents a fun musical!
Mission Friends: Three - Kinder
Girls Missions: First - Sixth Grade
Boys Missions: First - Sixth Grade
The goal of all our missions programs is to instill the idea in every child that we are the workmen of Christ, and that we are called to reach locally and globally with the good news of Jesus. Kids learn through hands-on activities how they can impact the world around them for the kingdom. Mission Friends teaches children that they can pray for missionaries and actively support them. Through food, crafts, visiting missionaries and hands-on activities, children learn about different cultures around the globe and the missionaries serving in those places! The young ladies in Girls' Missions build lasting friendships as they explore ways to be involved in both local and international missions. This year we will be covering topics including world hunger, fair trade, and using service animals to minister to people. For the boys, think missions "guy-style" - lots of activities with a purpose: to learn about God, to learn how God is using people to reach the world with the gospel and how God can use them today. Some highlights are: campouts, racers, line gliders, paper air rockets, missions' projects and visits from missionaries.
