Children's Ministry (Infant - 5th Grade)

Sundays at 10:15am

  • Nursery—Children from birth through age 2, experience the love of Christ through the hands of caring volunteers.
  • Children’s Worship—During the worship service, children age 3 through kindergarten worship God through a unique story-telling format and multisensory materials.
  • Kingdom Kids—During the worship service, children in 1st through 5th grade experience a Bible story and then reflect on the story in an age-appropriate and varied manner, with an emphasis on how the story fits into the big picture of the Bible. On the 3rd Sunday, Communion Sunday, only the 1st grade students will have class.  The 2nd - 5th grade students will remain in the communion service with their families.

 

Wednesdays at 6:30pm (September - May)

  • Nursery—For the children of adults who are volunteering or attending Lifetree Cafe, there is childcare available in the nursery for children up to age 6 (kindergarten). They will experience the love of Christ through the hands of caring volunteers.
  • CREW—Boys and girls in K through 3rd grade gather as a large group to learn a Bible story.  Then, with their small group, they rotate through stations that help them understand the story more deeply, while developing relationships with peers, their leader and most of all, Jesus.
  • GEMS (Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior)—Girls in 4th-8th grade experience large group worship and Bible teaching, small group teaching and prayer, and special events such as service projects, gym nights, skill nights, and special celebration nights.
  • Cadets—Boys in 4th-8th grade participate in Bible study and skill building as they earn badges throughout the year.   They primarily work, study and relate in their cadre (small group).
