Family & Children’s Ministry

Where do your kids spend more time in a week, a year, a childhood? With you or at church? God gives parents, not church workers, the joyful and weighty role of being the primary spiritual caregiver for their kids. With that in mind, we consider how to minister to your whole family.

Ahead of program offerings, we think about vision and mission.

VISION – where we seek to go

Strong families, strong church, God’s glory

MISSION – how we work to get there

To partner with parents to pass on God’s truth that the next generations would hope in Jesus (Psalm 78:4-7). Below are some of the ways we go about this.


Ark Nursery – free care in a safe, loving environment for children birth–4 yrs (not yet K4-aged) during all regular meeting times.

Sunday School/Project NexKid – Sundays at 9 am. 3-year chronological, Jesus-focused Bible study (The Gospel Project), for birth-5th grade.

NexKid Worship – K4-2nd grade during the sermon to help them learn to worship in “big church,” through Bible lessons, music, & games. They’re invited after our singing together.

NexKid Investigators – Wednesdays at 6pm for K4-5th grade, focusing on life-changing truths and themes that fill the Bible; plus missions, Church History, games, and craft-ivities.
