KIDS & STUDENT MINISTRIES


Kids at every phase need adults who will show up predictably and consistently over time. In fact, it's the one thing they need more than anything else. We are doing our best work when we show up FOR our kids and students each week and show them the love of Jesus, again and again.

  • BABIES & TODDLERS

    environment available on sunday mornings @ 10:30am


    Babies are given attention and care, and toddlers play and explore as we provide lots of opportunities for them to move and stay active. We believe that children start learning before we realize they are, so it's never too early to start teaching Biblical truths. In our nursery environment, we tell simple stories and sing memorable songs that ingrain Biblical truths. Palma Smiley Early Childhood Curriculum helps us accomplish this goal and advance our infants biblically, academically, and developmentally. We want to provide little ones with their first look at who God is and help them begin to understand God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

  • Preschool (AGES 3 - PREK)

    environment AVAILABLE on sunday mornings @ 10:30am


    Preschoolers are at a fun age of exploration and excitement. Our ministry focuses on meeting them where they are and introducing them to the faith they will hold on to for the rest of their lives. They are taught Bible stories and learn to repeat simple Bible words. Preschoolers continue to build their understanding of three basic truths: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

  • EARLY ELEMENTARY (k - 3rd)

    ENVIRONMENT available ON SUNDAY MORNINGS @ 10:30am


    AWANA PROGRAMMING available on SUNDAY NIGHTS @ 6pm beginning 8/15.

    During this phase, kids are taught to find and read verses and stories from the Bible independently. Each week we strive to present Biblical truths in creative, memorable ways so that kids will complete their time in Kids Place with the understanding that: I need to make the wise choice, I can trust God no matter what, and I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

  • Bridge (4th & 5th grades)

    ENVIRONMENT AVAILABLE ON SUNDAY MORNINGS @ 10:30AM


    The Bridge group helps 4th and 5th graders grow by connecting the student to God, the students to each other, and bridging the gap between elementary and middle school. Our goal during the Bridge years is that students will learn: I need to make wise choices, I can trust God no matter what, and I should treat others the way I want to be treated. These truths are critical for students to internalize before they move on to middle school. 


  • Middle SChool (6th - 8th)

    ENVIRONMENT AVAILABLE ON SUNDAY NIGHTS @ 6pm

    * Please note: No MSM evening programming on 8/1.

    In what can be an awkward time of development, we create a comfortable atmosphere filled with opportunities to create friendships with other middle schoolers. This positive environment leads to engaging conversations about the Gospel and how it can affect their lives and the community around them. As middle schoolers begin to develop a sense of identity, our goal is to instill three main truths that are so important for them to understand and believe in their walk with Christ: I will love God because he will never stop loving me, I will follow Jesus because he knows me better than I know myself, and I will live out God's story so that others will know who Jesus is.

  • High school (9th - 12th)

    ENVIRONMENT AVAILABLE ON SUNDAY NIGHTS @ 6PM

    * Please note: No HSM evening programming on 8/1.


    Students at this age encounter God in different ways, and it is our goal to meet them here and now with what God wants from them and what God wants to do through them. Our goal is to help them establish their own faith and relationship with God. In this environment, students have a safe place to ask difficult questions, share their doubts, and build relationships with other students and their Creator. As high school students transition out of this ministry and into adulthood, our goal is that they own these key truths: I am created to pursue an authentic relationship with my Creator, I belong to Jesus Christ and define who I am by what he says, and I exist every day to demonstrate God's love to a broken world.
