Children's Ministry

It is our deep-rooted conviction that FAMILY matters to God.  It was His idea, His design, and His creation from the very beginning.  We believe that life works best when we orient our lives around God’s Word and ways. Therefore it is our desire to grow spiritually healthy families by awakening and championing parents in their roles as the primary nurturers of their kid’s faith (Deuteronomy 6).

We desire to play a supportive role to parents in that process (Ephesians 4) and believe that it is only by partnering with the Holy Spirit that true transformation takes place.  We believe this kind of strong family unit points to Jesus Christ in compelling ways and affects change both in ourselves and others around us.  It is the desire of our volunteer teaching team that your kids hear God’s Word in an accurate, creative, dynamic and engaging way each week as we work to foster a generation that has an active relationship with God and hearts set on bringing the kingdom of God here.

Our Core Values

Child-Centered

We look at everything we do through the eyes of a child.

Relational

Life change happens best in the context of relationships… even for children.
