Children's Ministry

Children's Ministry mission: We exist to see children come to Christ and grow in Christ. We are all running to win the eternal prize (I Corinthians 9:24-27). We believe that only Jesus Christ can transform parents and children. 

Our aim each week in Children's Ministry is to incite wonder, provoke discovery and fuel passion in your child to learn about God and to live to be more like Jesus. Visit the age level-specific environments (NurseryPreschool, Elementary) below to discover more about the Children's Ministry. Each CM environment is available during our weekend services.

First Time Guests

For your first visit to the Children's Ministry, check out the categories below.

Check In/Out

To participate in the Children's Ministry, each child from birth to grade 4 must be checked in each week at one of our children’s check-in areas. You will receive three ID tags for each child: one for the child to wear, one to give to the child’s teacher/leader as you drop him/her off at the classroom, and one, a Parent Pick-up tag, for you to keep. You will need to present your tag for each child at the check out time.

Paging System

Included on the ID tags you’ll receive at check-in is a pager number. Should we need to contact you during the worship service, this pager number will appear on the LED screens above the platform in the auditorium. Please keep your copy of the tag(s) handy during the worship service.
