Ministry Info Events


OUR ENVIRONMENT

We have safe, fun and interactive environments for children to connect with friends and learn more about God’s best for their lives. In all we do for children, our team provides consistent and caring leaders who work to partner with parents as they raise their children to be difference makers in their schools, homes and city.




WHAT TO EXPECT

When you arrive at one of our campuses, look for the Children’s Check-In area. A staff member or volunteer will answer any questions you may have, help you get checked in and find the correct room for your child.

All volunteers and staff are background-checked and trained before volunteering, so rest assured, your children are in safe hands.

Our Children's ministry takes place during weekend services.

BIRTH THROUGH  PRE-K

While parents attend our worship service,
children birth through pre-K will be lovingly
cared for in a fun, safe and secure environment.

This month, we're focusing on the Basic Truth: Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
In March, the preschoolers are learning how to follow the leader. What they need to learn is that throughout life there will be countless choices of leaders they can follow. We want them to know who the best leader is to follow. And that is Jesus! Jesus is the best leader we can follow!


MEMORY VERSE

Matthew 4:19 is the verse children will be learning this month. Below are the motions for this verse, or you can watch the video.
"Come (motion toward yourself with hand)

and follow me (march),"

Jesus said (hands to mouth like yelling),

Matthew 4:19 (open your hands like a book).

KINDERGARTEN THROUGH FIFTH GRADE

In a safe and secure atmosphere, children enjoy small and large group environments where they engage in Bible stories and activities related to a monthly Life App.

By the time our Kidventure children graduate from fifth grade, we want them to understand:
1. I need to make the wise choice.
2. I can trust God no matter what.
3. I need to treat others the way I want to be treated.


FORGIVENESS

Forgiveness is deciding that someone who has wronged you doesn't have to pay. All of us have some relationships that we might call fixer-uppers. If we're honest, it takes a lot of strength to want to make them good as new. It requires us to let go of what's right and fair in order to fix what's broken. That's never easy. But with God's help, we have the tools we need to forgive.

CHILD DEDICATION

No one will have more influence on your child than YOU! We believe that what happens at home is more important than what happens at church. It is our hope that we can partner with you from the very beginning. We will encourage you and resource you to raise your child to know what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.







Child Dedication is an opportunity to celebrate a young child and to commit yourselves as parents to train up your child in a way that will honor God. Child Dedication is more than an event. It is an opportunity for you to take some time at the beginning of your journey as a parent to really think about what will matter the most in the life of your child, to decide what you value and what you can do today to have the greatest impact on your child's future.


If you have a child you wish to dedicate, here are your next steps:

1. Sign up for parent orientation and child dedication.

2. Download the homework, print and answer the questions. Bring completed homework to the Parent Orientation.
