Jesus loves the little children! They are precious in His sight. Let’s bring them to Him!

Children are a blessed legacy, responsibility, and hope. Our time, love, and care are well-invested in them. Let’s come alongside each other to raise them together as a community!

In Kid City, children (babies through 5th grade) learn about Jesus… the one who loves them and has big plans for their lives. Their imaginations are shaped by God’s Word. Kids develop healthy relationships with each other and the adults that serve on the Kid City team.

We meet during both the 9:15 a.m. and 11 a.m. services on Sunday morning.

Series Overview:

Our 4-week series the Old Testament on the Prophets

If you’ve ever gotten a little emotional during your favorite Disney or Pixar movie, you know animation is a powerful tool to not only tell big stories, but to make us feel big feelings, too! In this four-week series, we’ll look at some stories of the Old Testament prophets as we explore some of those feelings. These stories will remind kids that God cares about our big feelings. With God, we can all feel secure, comforted, valued, and loved, even when our emotions tell us otherwise.


TIP of the Month

When’s the last time you told your kid about your journey of faith? Have you ever told them what you thought about God when you were their age, or when you first heard about Jesus? Do you talk with them about who God is to you today? If it’s been a while, start that conversation with your kid this month. Tell them your story of faith for two reason:

  1. Because it will help your kid’s faith grow.
  2. Because it will help your faith grow too.

RESOURCE of the Month
