We want our children to become lifelong worshippers of Jesus!

Children learn to know and show the love of Jesus through our Faith Kidz Sunday morning worship and other enrichment programs. Questions? Contact our Director of Children’s Ministries at .

Sunday Mornings

Classroom map

Note:  May 20 is the last Sunday for our 2017-18 School Year.  On Memorial Day weekend, Sunday, May 27, we encourage children to worship with their family. Take sermon notes, read the scripture together and lift you voices in song together. Afterward, spend some time talking as a family about your church worship experience and why we worship.  The Nursery will still be available.
Sunday Morning Summer Programming will begin June 3 and run each Sunday throughout the summer. The theme is “Finding Jesus: Under the Sea.” 

Nursery and Toddlers

9:30 and 11:00 a.m.

We offer separate nursery and toddler rooms on Sunday mornings staffed with carefully screened and trained staff and volunteers.

Faith Kidz Worship (Pre-K – 4th Grade)

9:30 and 11:00 a.m.

Sundays Faith Kidz Worship is an interactive experience for your preschool through 4th-grade child(ren) that integrates worship, music, prayer, and a Bible lesson. In our large group worship, we use lively contemporary music, active storytelling with audio-visual aids, and hands-on opportunities to keep your children engaged as they learn. After the large group session, children break out into small groups where they can interact with peers of their own age to discuss, learn and share experiences and understandings with a group facilitator. 

We believe that the Bible is an integral part of a child’s faith journey. Therefore, when children are in the third grade, Faith Community presents them with their very own children’s Bible during worship. We encourage each child to bring his or her Bible to Faith Kidz worship each Sunday and learn all the wonderful ways the stories and lessons can be applied to everyday life.

Our acolyte ministry helps teach your 3rd - 6th grader to honor God as they bring the “Light of Christ” into our Traditional Worship services. We provide training for all interested children so they have an opportunity to practice before serving on a Sunday morning. Questions? Contact

 


Vacation Bible School

VBS Dates: Monday, June 18 - Friday, June 22; 9:30 am – 12:30 pm

VBS is an opportunity for children, ages 4 through those going into 6th grade, to learn about Jesus in a very fun and engaging environment. The VBS theme this summer is Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus, where kids will travel through rotations of songs, games, drama and snacks that all reinforce relevant Bible points and immerse kids in new adventures. Questions? Contact .

We believe you can help welcome the kids and pour love and encouragement on them as they learn and grow in faith at this year’s VBS, June 18-22!

We expect nearly 300 children will learn how much God loves and values them in our “Shipwrecked” VBS program.  Your unique gifts, skills, interests, experience, and abilities have a place at VBS. We will need 175 volunteers to help. Together we discover that VBS is a fun and rewarding week for everyone involved. Click the link to volunteer.

Volunteer Training

God is calling you to step out in faith, and our seasoned experts will support you every step of the way. Come join us to support our VBS kids, form some new friendships, and grow your own faith by attending any one of the several training opportunities we’re offering. All volunteers must attend one training session (listed below).

Two training sessions will be available. Both sessions will take place in the Community Room.  

  • Wednesday, June 6 at 7 p.m.
  • Sunday, June 9 at 10 a.m.

To make our church a fun and inviting space for VBS, many hands and thoughtful ideas will be needed to decorate. We are looking for some workers (creativity is optional) to help put together home kits, decorate doors, rooms, hallways, a lobby and a platform in some fun themes.
