Children’s Ministry

We have an exciting ministry for children preschool to 5th grade.

Children want to imitate what they see, so, we have adopted Ephesians 5:1-2 as our ministry verse. “Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”

We offer programming that we are sure you and your child will find exciting, meaningful and that purposefully introduces Jesus Christ to your child and encourages them to grow in their faith.


Welcome to the Clubhouse! This is our kindergarten through second grade worship service offered every week (September through May). Bring your children into the main worship service and after the welcome they will be excused to the Clubhouse. You’re invited to go with them to meet Matt and Renee West and see where they’ll be learning.

Sunday School

What is Sunday School? Sunday School is what we call our Bible study groups. Our childrens’ classes take place at 9:30 in the Family Ministry Center. The classes are broken down by age and school grade and are each led by fantastic teachers who have a heart for children.

What can we expect for our first morning? Our Family Ministry Center was designed not just for effective teaching space but also for the safety and security of your child. So when you arrive you will see Kara, our Childrens Ministry Director or one of her helpers behind a registration computer. The process takes only a few minutes to register your child and when you’re done a name tag and a pick up tag will print. Once you have those one of our welcome staff will be happy to take you to your child’s class and introduce you to his or her teachers.

After the Sunday School hour, grade school children need to be picked up and brought over to the Sanctuary for our morning service.

Wednesday Nights

From 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday nights from September through May, we hold a program for children ages 4 through 5th grade.  It is a program called Olympians and has as it’s goal to lay a solid foundation of biblical principals in the lives of children. Each year children:

  • learn to have a consistant daily time in God’s word
  • have 48 lessons including character studies, life of Christ lessons and holiday theme nights
  • memorize verses that come from the lessons helping them hide God’s Word in their heart
  • minister and serve in the church and community
  • read age appropriate books to strengthen their faith
  • earn fun incentives for their accomplishments
