Children's Ministry

Kidz4Jesus Preschool Ministry

Children aged birth through 5 years are offered safe, loving care in our Kidz4Jesus Preschool Department. Babies through 12 months have their first church experience in "Meeting Jesus". 12-24 month-old children in our Toddler Room learn about "Knowing Jesus". 2's & 3's move on to "Loving Jesus", and 4's & 5's learn discipleship and "Following Jesus". We have a secure and safe system to keep track of each child and their parents.

Kids Power Hour

Students in 1st-5th grades participate in this worship time geared especially for them. Kids Power Hour begins at 10:30 am immediately following Sunday School and concludes at the same time as our second worship service. Lessons, music, games, scripture memory, communion, prayer, service and activities make this worship experience both fun and meaningful.

Summer Camp

Health Standards, Children & Church

We take great care to keep our building clean, especially in the preschool and nursery areas. Toys are washed, counters and surfaces disinfected, and restrooms cleaned regularly. Our volunteers wash and sanitize their hands at each diaper change. There is a first-aid kit at hand in each of our preschool classrooms.

In order to protect all of the children we serve, we will not accept a child into a preschool classroom that is obviously ill, or has a fever, runny nose, or a rash.

Children in our infant, toddler and preschool areas are checked in with a tag system. Children are only released from our care to an adult with the correct check-in card for that child.
