Our Children's Ministries

We want our children to become lifelong worshippers of Jesus! At Faith Community, children learn to know and show the love of Jesus through our Faith Kidz Sunday morning worship and other enrichment programs. 

Sunday Morning
Children have 9:30 am Faith Kidz Sunday School available each week. Right now, they are enjoying a 13-week Prayer experience for kids, with small group classes for toddlers and preschool, K-3rd, and 4-6. Also, the nursery is staffed during the 9:30 am worship services.

Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School is a wonderful outreach event that we host every year at Faith Community. Hundreds of kids and dozens of volunteers come together for a fun week of songs, games, snacks and learning all about God's love. 

Upward Basketball and Cheer
Faith Community also participates in the Upward Basketball and Cheer program. We have multiple boys and girls basketball teams, as well as several cheer squads.

Faith Community Preschool
The goal of our Preschool to provide a positive first school experience for children using play-based learning and developmentally appropriate practice. We have classes for children ages 2-5 years old. Our program enhances self-esteem and encourages independence within a Christian curriculum.

Our Youth Ministries

Our Youth Group meets most Sunday evenings where our Youth Director Jeff Ackenback shares a message with the kids. Then during the second hour, Youth enjoy small group discussions plus other activities (games, etc.).

Faith's Youth also have their own praise band (GRAVITY) that practices most Sundays after Youth Group and leads worship occasionally on Sunday mornings.


Our Outreach Ministries

Every Tuesday evening, Faith Community hosts a dinner that is open to anyone in the community. In addition to dinner, the evening features live Christian music on our stage during dinner. Afterwards, there are activities for children, youth and families such as themed crafts, games, etc.
