Our mission is the next generation. We see them today as a vital part of who we are and who we will be. This reflects in everything we do…, many of our gatherings are all ages. If we dance, the kids are right there with us…following the twenty-something’s moves. During our worship, creative piece, message ~ the infants, toddlers, preschoolers…on up are invited to be with us. We learn from each other. In the good old book, Isaiah 8:18, Isaiah says, “Here am I, and the children the Lord has given me. We are the signs and symbols in Israel from the Lord Almighty, who dwells on Mount Zion.”
We pray that the children sense our Jehovah God early…. and find their feet to stand right beside us in their faith.
Christmas Sunday: Our Flintstones Kids lead the service one Sunday in December. We invite all children in the service to join us in a Christmas Pageant celebrating the birth of Jesus. We have costumes for all the children and they all gather at a designated time in the morning and we lift up the King of Kings with banners, songs, and honor from our hearts. Join us, it is fun, simple, and holy each year.
Kids Camp: The third week in June our church comes together and we set up Kids Camp for elementary children. It is a great time for your children to invite their friends. We have fun outdoors playing games, making projects, experiencing drama, and exploring nature science. And yes, it is all centered around the one who loves us most! We meet on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and end with a celebration cook out with music, bounce houses, face painting, snow cones, and fun!
Weekly Gels: Our children of all ages are welcome in our weekly gatherings. It isn’t always easy, but it is always building community. We are a people learning how to do our gatherings with our children so they can walk with us as we follow Jesus.
Sunday Mornings: You will experience a multi-generational service. We all worship together – babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and on up. We do provide a nursery for children up through four years old. We also prepare back packs with supplies for coloring, word puzzles, crafts, and note taking to aid the children as they learn to be with us as the church. We also have back packs made for our babies and toddlers with toys so they can quietly play on your lap or the floor. Kids Zone is a place within the worship area where our kids can crawl and play quietly as we all develop the skills to worship the Lord together.
