Kids & Students


KidStep

Our mission is “Joining Children on their Spiritual Journey.” The purpose of KidStep is to intentionally focus on ways that we can help children take next steps of faith from birth through fifth grade.

We welcome your children at 9 and 10:30 AM to an environment that is kid-safe, kid-friendly, and kid-focused. Our vision is to equip volunteers and empower parents to lead the next generation to live and love like Jesus as they take next steps of faith. Each Sunday our volunteers love and care for your children, while building relationships with them through age-appropriate worship, creative Bible teaching, and small groups. For the safety of the children, we have a check-in system that uses parent pick-up tags. Look for our Kids’ Check-In Stations on Sunday mornings to receive your child’s nametags and your parent pick-up tag.

If you have a child with special needs, our Treehouse Ministry is for you. Fill out this form and we will get back to you shortly.

We are excited to join your children on their spiritual journey at KidStep!

 

CORE Student Ministries

CORE is a place for high school and middle school students to connect with one another, with older mentors, and with Jesus. Our desire is to help students become disciple-makers and to walk alongside both them and their parents in their faith journeys.

We meet on Sundays at 10:30 AM, with high school students in the Core Cafe and middle school in the auditorium. On Wednesdays, we meet at 7 PM, but students can come early at 6:45 PM for cafe time. Both meetings times have a blend of games, community, small and large group teaching, and discipleship. Check out our CORE webpage.
