Our approach to kids ministry is welcoming and engaging them in our worships services. We celebrate children. Children’s worship tables are located in the center of our sanctuary. A children’s message is a part of each service but since we are ALL God’s children we expect this will be a time of ministry for all ages. We often hear it is a highlight of the service. Children are encouraged to engage in hands on activities at the worship tables weekly. We also encourage them to be a part of the service. They are always welcome to read scripture; offer prayers; serve communion; pass offering trays; serve as praise and worship leaders or provide special music. Mathew 18:5 says “And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.”
We value worship and are excited to offer families the opportunity to experience God’s love together. It’s also important to know, you don’t have to be accompanied by an adult to attend worship. If your parents aren’t able to attend you are still welcome. In addition to worship kids are invited to all social activities and events as well as mission and service trips. It’s important to be surrounded by people of all ages who love and support you. We are doing our best to connect children to God’s love in every way possible!
Student ministry is important to us. We want to provide students with the opportunity to develop a personal faith in Christ as they step into their specific roles in the story God is writing with their lives. We work hard to create environments that engage students in conversations about God, encourage them to ask questions, search answers and truly learn to listen to His leading in their lives. We want to see our students step into the fullness of life Christ offers.
We know that middle school and high school are the years where students are in most need of kindness, community and someone to walk alongside them as they grow. Our student ministries provide connections with one another, opportunities to serve others and experiences providing spiritual growth
