passing the gospel to the next generation
1Few things are more important to Christian parents than making sure their kids grow to love God and to live for His kingdom. We want to help parents train their children from the time they’re born until they are ready for the responsibility of living as adults.
2God’s plan is to use families as the primary context where children learn about the gospel. This is where they’ll find out about God’s nature, about their rebellion, about God’s plan to bring them back to Himself, and about the hope they have in responding to God’s grace.
3We desire to assist parents in this wonderful responsibility of training their children. Because modeling and example are such strong factors in parenting, we’re glad to have children in the Sunday service, for the worship and the preaching segments. However, because the preaching segment of our service is directed towards adults, we have developed a Children’s Ministry that provides care and teaching for children up through the sixth grade.
Current Class Divisions
- Nursery: Four months to two years old.
- Toddler: Two and three year olds.

Follow-up devotionals are available for parents with children in preschool, lower and upper elementary classes.
For more information about our safety policies, curriculum, or what makes our Children’s Ministry tick, please let any of the leaders know. They’ll be more than happy to fill you in.
