On any given Sunday, the lower level of the church is filled with our littlest members hearing from and finding God’s stories in the Bible, singing worship songs, playing with toys and fun games with peers, spending time talking with God in prayer and quiet, and receiving words of blessing from committed adult volunteers. All of our stories, activities and games are tailored to the age of the child so that they can encounter God for themselves in a special way!
On holiday weekends, our kids join us in the upstairs gathering where their energy and joy in Jesus is welcomed and celebrated!
As a church family we do many things together to encourage our kids, help build community amongst families and provide safe environments to play and grow! Each year we hold seasonal events like Trunk-or-Treat and The Gingerbread Event, summer fun like Vacation Bible school and outdoor play dates, opportunities to serve as a family and other special times where people can gather and have fun! See Upcoming Events to participate in allllll the fun!
We communicate to families through email and on our social media, providing information and also ways to connect with your kids at home, encouraging their faith and growth. We desire to support parents as the primary influencers in a child’s faith journey and to walk with you through the highs and lows of the journey of growing in Christ while living as a human! If you are registered for Sunday mornings, you will be on our communication list.
It takes an amazing team of volunteers to provide quality NextKids programming each Sunday Morning! Welcoming families, cuddling babies, consoling toddlers, playing with preschoolers, leading games, teaching Bible stories, building relationships… we need your unique gifts & strengths to make a big impact on the faith formation of the next generation within our elementary and early childhood classrooms.
