Bob Hopkins - Director of Children's Ministry

We know that your kids are looking for a place that rocks! We’ve invested a lot to make sure that Sunday mornings are exciting and safe for all. We want church to be the best hour of the week for your kids and that vision is reflected in each classroom run by amazing volunteers. Children's Ministry ranges from birth to 5th grade. 

Nursery :: Birth-36 Months

Our three nurseries (birth-9 months, 10-18 months, 19-36 months) are a safe, fun environment for our youngest children.


We have a classroom for potty-trained three year olds and another for ages 4-KG. Both classes participate in directed free play, small group crafts and games that reinforce the large-group lesson and active worship. We seek to develop a good understanding of God and a core faith through three concepts: God made me, God loves me and Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

KidsUp :: 1st-5th Grades

Three basic truths every child should embrace: 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. These truths were also embraced by Jesus himself according to Luke 2:52 "And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men." Each basic truth is amplified by a weekly bottom line and systematically taught over a three-year track. This includes weekly Bible stories based on the monthly core value and memory verses.

Special Friends

We consider it a privilege to minister to your child in our special needs class. Our goal is to provide a safe, caring environment for your child to grow spiritually. The teachers are trained to meet the needs of your child and help them learn how to fall in love with Jesus.

Our Special Friends class is available at the 9am celebration.
