Preschool Ministry | Birth through Pre-K
Our team creates a loving, nurturing environment where little ones learn that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever! Beyond the weekend services, our preschool ministry team partners with you in raising your children to be fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
- Birth to 17 Months: We love your kids and keep them engaged while you attend one of our services.
- 18 Months-2 Years: We teach your children God’s Word with fun, engaging lessons designed for this exciting age.
- 3-5 Years: Once your child turns three, they also go to a large group session where they sing, dance, and watch videos or skits that reiterate each week’s Bible Story and each month’s Memory Verse.
Elementary Ministry | K-5th
Each week the kids will enjoy a multimedia learning experience as they dive into God’s Bible truths through live Bible teaching, fun videos, live worship music, games, small groups, and other activities designed to help them understand and apply God’s Word.
What We Do
We start off each Sunday service hanging out in small groups by grade level. Each group is led by our incredible team of background-checked volunteer small group leaders. Then we move with our small groups to a large group experience with live worship, age-appropriate teaching, cool videos, and fun games. After that, we head back to our small group areas to dig deeper into the day’s message and its application for our lives. We finish small groups with prayer time as parents come back to pick up kids, and just like that, we pass the baton back to you. Go parents!
How We Teach
We walk through the Bible chronologically with the kids, changing series titles and themes every four to six weeks. Each week we look at a different Bible story using a technique called the SOAP Method:
Using this simple formula, we help kids better understand the Bible and how it applies to their lives.
