Our mission is to create a gracious environment that invites children to reflect upon and know the love of Jesus Christ in a way that supports parents and equips children to grow in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.

(Luke 2:52)

Music & Memory | Wednesdays @ 5:30 pm

Music & Memory (M&M) is our Wednesday night ministry just for children! M&M is from 5:30 pm to 6:45 pm each Wednesday evening during the school year. During M&M we study God’s word, enjoy creating a craft or playtime, learn worship songs and eat dinner.

Our goal is for our kids to go home with a heart & mind full of God’s word and a belly full of dinner!

Drop-off begins at 5:20 pm and pickup starts at 6:45 pm. M&M is open to children ages 4 yrs (by September 1, 2017) to 6th graders.

Kids Cafe | 2nd & 4th Sundays @ 5:30 pm

Shepherding Groups, our adult-only small groups, are hosted off-site on the 2nd and 4th Sunday evenings of each month during the school year. Kids Cafe was created to enable this adult-focused fellowship.

Kids Cafe starts at 5:30 pm (drop-off begins at 5:25). During Kids Cafe you child will enjoy organized playtime, a Bible lesson and dinner! We ask that you pickup your child no later than 7:10 pm.

This year our children will get to know Theo, who lives in a cozy corner of a quaint English village, and his two mouse friends, Luther and Belfry. Theo discusses topics such as the doctrines of salvation, Godʼs character, the Bible, and Godly living in a way that make children want to learn more about the Christian faith. Plus, Luther and Belfry always seem to find themselves in a fun adventure!

Kids Cafe is open to all children whose parents attend Shepherding Groups, nursery age to 6th grade.
