Please come to the Kids Check-In Center on your first visit. We will collect helpful information, take ID photos and get your cell number or issue a pager so we can stay in touch.  Kindergarten through Fourth Graders report to the Kids Worship Center for an interactive worship celebration. They sit on colored carpets according to their grade groups.

After service, parents return to the Check-In Center and we will issue photo ID pick up slips to present for a secure checkout. Elementary kids are picked up in their break out rooms.

Sunday Mornings – 9:30 and 11:00am

Elementary students gather in the Kids Worship Center. They participate in  an interactive worship celebration. This includes high energy music, and games and an introduction to our monthly theme, Bible lessons and memory projects.  After worship they break out to classrooms for small group time with their group leaders.  Kids may attend both hours while their parents are serving or attending classes.

Parent Connections

“What happens at home is more important than what happens at church.”

We know that PARENTS are the leaders in a child’s faith development.  We are here to partner with you. Elementary parents receive weekly emails with lesson themes and faith-at-home conversation starters.

 Get Involved

One of the best ways to get involved in your child’s faith development is to share their experience on Sunday mornings. Parents are encouraged to volunteer with our kids ministry.  Whether you visit occasionally or serve on monthly rotation, we would love to have you join us.  See our volunteer page for more information.

Wednesday Programs


Kindergarten through 4th graders 

Our S.H.I.N.E. ministry meets on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday from 6:30-8:00pm September through March. This year they are studying the life of David.  We created a new family devotional that coordinates with our lessons and memory verses.  SHINE includes Bible games, singing, small group service projects and earning points to spend on “STORE” night. It is lead by Sara Bultemeier and Amy Winters.




For 4th graders

This leadership team is for 4th graders only, but every 4th grader is welcome.  No try outs. They rehearse music and choreography on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays from 6:30-8:00pm September through May.  The evening includes team building games and devotional time.  Members wear team T-shirts and lead Kids Worship on Sunday mornings. It is lead by Tina Stewart and Chelsea Buckwalter.
