Kids

Why do we do Children’s Ministry?

God is at work in children! He’s renewing young minds and hearts for his glory. We want to be a part of that work, to show kids and their families the self-giving love of Christ. Serving these little kids is our natural role as the “bigger kids” in God’s family, the local Church -- and a lot of us have found that our own minds and hearts are renewed along the way.

We want to come alongside parents as they extend Christ's love to their kids. We exalt Christ to our children—so that God’s family, the local church, might multiply for the glory of God.

 

Our Mission

Be a family.

We strive to model the biblical church family, by developing personal relationships between children and their teachers, small group leaders, and helpers.

Serve our kids.

We serve our children, extending Christ’s self-giving love to them for God’s glory, that by our service, they might glorify God and develop a passion for his glory in all things.

Teach the Gospel.

We desire to see the hearts and minds of our children and their families renewed by the power of the Gospel, faithfully teaching and calling them to love Jesus Christ to the utmost of their abilities.
