Children’s Ministry Overview

Through a variety of avenues, we desire to care for and shepherd children from diapers to discipleship. Teachers and helpers are equipped to effectively minister to little ones and committed to assisting parents in fulfilling the Scriptural admonition to train their children in a way that honors the Lord.

What Children are Taught

Beginning with our two-year olds, we teach each child about the storyline or the drama of the Bible.  We explain how God, who is from everlasting to everlasting, created all things for His glory and in time revealed Himself to mankind in many ways, but most fully in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe this will lay a foundation that is critical for children to have in order for them to understand God’s plan of redemption and the significance of the gospel.

We believe that children can handle deep truth at a young age. We want to fill them with solid Bible truth that will provide a strong foundation and prepare them for the storms of life. For this reason, we emphasize the study, the memorization, and the application of God’s Word. In addition, we desire to “walk alongside” parents, enabling and equipping them in their God-given roles. We encourage parental involvement in the classroom and provide resources and tools for parents to more effectively nurture the faith of their children at home.

Nursery Care

Nursery care is also available during morning worship services for children ages 4 and under.
