Children's Ministries

Welcome! Our goal is to help our children become true disciples of Jesus Christ by: building relationships with them, Being examples for them and teaching them God’s Word.

Our Children's Ministry is called the Firestarters. It's designed for children 6 months to 12 years old. We want your child to experience the presence of God, be changed and believe that even now they can love God and serve Him.  We do not babysit, we have age-appropriate class rooms where the Bible is taught in a fun, relevant way. Most importantly, we want an atmosphere for them to sense the power of God and have the freedom to move if God has put something on their heart.  

Our Firestarters are divided by age into three groups; Nursery, Toddlers and 4-12's with each having a time of worship, prayer, and interactive lessons.

Nursery

The Nursery is geared toward children ages 6-23 months. During your child’s visit, they will be cared for and prayed over by the Nursery ministers. Their physical needs will be taken care of including: diaper changes, bottle feedings, cuddled, held and rocked. A snack will also be provided. Their spiritual needs are just as important so there is a time of praise and worship and a bible lesson. We also incorporate free play time.

Toddlers

This is the age group of 24 months to 3 years. This is a busy age group and the Toddler ministers are well equipped to keep these little ones busy.  They have a time of praise and worship, a bible lesson totally geared for them, a craft or activity that coincides with the lesson and a time of prayer. Their physical needs will be taken care of with potty breaks, diaper changes as well as a snack provided. We also give them time to play before dismissing. 

4-12's

In this class the ministers prepare a bible lesson which is totally interactive and often leaving the children wanting to know God more. We encourage the children to bring their bibles to class so they can see the Word in their own bible. We spend time praising and worshiping God together, praying for needs and for one another.

As we minister to the children, we hunger for more of God in our lives so they can see Jesus in us.
