The vision of our church is to help our families grow into Everyday Disciples!
- Daily Practice: where children have a growing, daily relationship with God
- Weekly Community: where children build lasting and supportive community, through faith formation, fellowhip, and fun
- Monthly Service: where children find unique ways to serve those around them, sharing the light of Christ

Each Sunday worship includes a children's message that's interactive and engaging. Children of all ages are welcome in worship and invited down front for the Children's message.
Our nurseries are available during Sunday School and Worship, 9am-noon to allow parents to sign-in their children and attend Sunday School while giving them ample time after service to gather their bundles of joy. The nurseries are staffed by background checked, experienced caregivers. Both nurseries are located near the sanctuary, ask for directions when you visit.
J-Walkers [Jesus Walkers]
J-Walkers is offered to children who are three years old (by August 31) - 1st Grade. Children begin in the sanctuary with their parents and are invited to leave for J-Walkers after the children's message. They are escorted to their room by our staff, weekly volunteers, and deacons. Each week the children are divided into two classes, 3-4 year olds and 5-6 year olds, as they have a snack, explore the scripture of the week through stories, crafts, activities, and games. When your child attends J-Walkers for the first time, please dismiss with them and register them. As always, parents are always welcome to observe.
Sunday School is offered at 9:30 am for all children September - May. The curriculum is interactive, video based, filled with faith forming activites, games and worship. Children are divided into classes by grades: Pre-School, K-2nd grade, and 3rd-5th grade.
We believe that youth need a safe place where they can ask questions regarding their faith, and it is important for them to develop relationships with committed Christian adults.
At 9:30 am youth grades 6th-12 meet together for an interactive, video-based lesson.
High schoolers meet most Sunday evenings during the school year, 5:00pm-7:00pm. These gatherings vary from faith formation discussions, service, and fellowship and fun.
BASIC Training [Brothers And Sisters In Christ]
On the 2nd Sun of every month middler schoolers join our high schoolers noon - 2pm. Lunch is provided before students participate in a variety of activities in the areas of fellowship, worship, study and service. This group also leads the congregation in worship on Youth Sunday once a year. In additional to Sunday nights, there are field trips throughout the year for service and recreation, lock-ins, a Summer Mission Trip, and a trip to Monteat Youth Conference in July.
Throughout the year there are additional activities offered for children and their families such as:
- Fall and Spring Festivals
