- Connecting kids and families to Jesus and the church
- Serving God as we learn how to serve others
- Encouraging kids to grow in their faith and apply the Bible to their lives
We have many opportunities to connect kids to Jesus!
All of our adult teachers and helpers in each kidz ministry program have had child abuse and criminal record background checks and are involved in training throughout the year.
Kidz Church is a church service especially for kids (ages 2 years through 5th grade) that takes place during the adult service time at 8:45 AM. We have a time of worship/singing together, then split up into classes based on age.
Nursery is available for children from birth through 2 years. We have a video and audio feed in the nursery so the service can be viewed.
Kidz Club is an upbeat children's program for ages 3 years through 6th grade. This program runs Wednesday night (September - April) from 6:00 - 7:45 PM. We have a fun filled night of music, games, Bible time, contests, theme nights, crafts and more.
We have top notch security. Children are checked in and not released without a proper check out pass. All of our adult teachers and helpers have clearances and we hold trainings throughout the year.
Also available Wednesday nights, before Clubs at 5:30 PM, is a free dinner for everyone - both kids and their families.
Camp is an amazing time full of fun and friends and a focus on God and how much He loves your child. We offer camps annually in the summer, for different ages groups and interests. Information will be updated here when our next camps are planned and registrations open.
KINGDOM KIDZ SOCCER
The vision for Kingdom Kidz Soccer is to see transformation take place in the lives of kids by presenting Jesus and by using soccer as a way to instill character traits, heart attitudes, and soccer skills that will honor and glorify God. Information will be updated here when our next season is planned and registrations open.
Psalm 96:12 - Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them.
Kidz Care is cancelled for the 2021-2022 school year. Please look for more details coming Spring 2022.
KIDZ CHECK IN & OUT PROCEDURES
Before Service: You can check-in your child at the Kidz Check-In Counter located in the lobby. You and your child will be given matching tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag. Your child will also receive a wrist band, indicating they have been checked in.
After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, the Kidz Ministry director or Security Personnel will call you.
