During Worship

Children's Ministry

Newborn to 24 Months

An attended nursery for infants – 2 years old is offered every Sunday during our large group gathering from 10:30-11:45 a.m. in our Kids Village. Infants and toddlers (up through 2 years old) will be loved, cared for, and played with by our gracious volunteers.

Sundays 10:30-11:45 a.m.

Kids Praise

Kids Praise - Kids Praise is a worship service designed for kids three years old through kids currently in kindergarten.

  • Guests and visitors are welcome to join us! Check in is required for everyone at the kiosks or welcome desk. Please use a check-in kiosk before services start and place the nametag on your child.
  • Worship starts at 10:30 and the kids will be dismissed from the auditorium before the sermon. The kids will join us in Club 513.

Every 5th Sunday of a month (and the month of August) is considered Family Worship Sunday. What is Family Worship Sunday and why do we do it?

  • Every 5th Sunday Children’s Ministry does not offer Kids Praise (children’s worship service) for children ages 3 years – kindergarten. Instead, these children remain in the auditorium for the entire service.
  • Children learn by watching you (and I am not just referring to their parents)! This is a time for parents (or other adults) to explain the parts of the service to your child. It is a time to show them how to look up Scripture. It is a time to let them see you, with a body of believers:
    - praising and worshiping God
    - praying
    - opening and reading your Bible
    - giving
    - saying Scripture
    - taking communion
    - and so much more

There are studies that show these things contribute to the “stickiness” of faith for these children, so we want to give an opportunity periodically where we as adults can help these children learn and grow by watching us. These children are not a distraction during church services ~ they are the future!

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Matthew 19:14
