Our children’s ministry offers children the opportunity to learn and love God, connect with peers and caring adults and learn how to serve others. Our intention is to provide students with a worship experience that is developmentally appropriate and allows for practical application of God’s word at their life stage. When children learn to know God and think biblically, they are far more likely to live wisely.

The Children Zone is broken down into the following  areas:

· Infants (6 weeks-24 months

· Toddlers (2-3 years old)

· PreK-Kindergarten

· 1st and 2nd Grade

· 3rd Grade

· 4th-5th Grade (BARAK Service)



We love to serve babies and growing toddlers in the name of Jesus. We are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment, allowing us to teach them to love God. We have developmental toys and equipment for each stage of growth. The toddlers participate in music, prayer, age appropriate bible lesson and activities that stimulate and keep them engaged. Our toddlers also participate in a take home craft that reinforces the lesson.


Preschoolers enjoy learning about Bible characters while also participating in music, story time, snacks and crafts. Our classes are led by teachers who are both passionate and dedicated. The toddlers also have activity time where they can share books, toys and equipment. 


Our classes are designed to prepare our children for a lifetime of personal bible study. We provide an environment where the children are eager and excited to learn about God. The children also participate in praise and worship and hands-on activities. We purpose to equip children to know and love God by studying and memorizing his word. The children leave with crafts and a review sheet that they can share with their parents. 



Barak is the Worship Service for 4th-5th grade children. The children participate in an exciting worship service designed to provide them with biblically lessons that can be applied to everyday life. The children participate in praise and worship, high energy activities and group games and scripture memorization.

BARAK is held every Sunday, at 10:00a.m. in the Children’s Zone. 


This is another opportunity for children to learn fundamental faith principals and build a foundation for lifelong discipleship. Children participate in bible study, bible memorization and activities. Classes are held for infant-5th grade on Wednesday night at 7:00p.m.

We carefully screen our volunteers to make sure that we are providing the

best possible experience for your children.
