Children's ministry

AWANA CLUBS

Wednesday nights from 6-7:30 p.m.

For kids age 3 through 5th grade

Kids represent the greatest opportunity to make a long-term impact on our world for Christ. 

Awana establishes welcoming, supportive environments where kids from every background and cultural setting, learn how a personal relationship with Christ affects their everyday lives.


Awana reaches kids where they’re at and walks alongside them in their faith journey. Those kids who come to faith at an early age discover God’s purpose for their lives and hope for the future. Ministry leaders and parents witness the profound impact Awana has in reaching kids with the gospel and watching them grow as long-term disciples.


The Awana Fall Kick Off is September 20!

CHILDREN

WEEKENDS

Children age 3 through 5th grade are encouraged to attend children's church during our Sunday worship gatherings. Parents are asked to check in their child at the Spark counter in our children's wing (east entrance). Children begin their time together as a group in room 100 (our former adult worship center) singing praise to our God in a fun, kid-friendly way. Kids are then dismissed to age appropriate classes for a Bible story, prayer and games. They return to room 100 near the end of the service, where parents may pick them up following the adult worship time. Please note, we are currently offering Children's Church on Sundays only.


WEDNESDAY NIGHTS

From September through April, Awana Clubs will meet on Wednesday nights at the church. Kids age 3 through 5th grade will pray, study the Bible, and play games. 


VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL

At VBS each summer, Hope buzzes with energy as hundreds of children play, sing, create, and learn just how much God loves them! Next year's theme is SHIPWRECKED. More information will be coming Spring 2018.

nursery

Our nursery is for the "birth to two-year-old" age group. 


All parent/guardians should check in their child at the welcome booth in the children's wing (east entrance) and fill out a child information page. This information page makes us aware of any special needs or concerns and ensures children are only released to someone approved for pick-up by the parent or guardian. Our well-baby policy ensures the safety and well being of other children. 


Each parent or guardian is also given a pager. In the event that the nursery staff needs a parent to return to their child, the pager can be buzzed and the parent notified without disturbing the worship gathering.



COMING SUMMER 2018: SHIPWRECKED VBS

We'll venture onto an uncharted island where kids survive and thrive, anchoring kids in the truth that Jesus carries them through life’s storms.
