Kids Ministry

Kids Ministry is the way we pour into the next generation. Our goal is to partner with parents and provide an environment and a community where kids can get to know Jesus.

We support the entire family and have parent/guardian classes and mentoring available. We have children's church at our 10:30 am service at our McKinley, East Aurora and Springville campuses and at our 9:00 am service at our South Creek campus. Children's church consists of a large group time and a small group time where we have the kids stay with their own grade level and do activities based on the Bible lesson of the day. We have nursery through preschool rooms available as well where our littles begin to hear about God and worship at their level and do activities based on their age. For all ages, we currently use Orange curriculum. This provides us with Bible videos, activities, and crafts all based around Bible themes and stories.

It is our goal to provide a safe environment for all children so that their families can feel comfortable going to adult service. We have a check-in system to ensure that. You and your family members receive badges that need to be matched at pick-up time to ensure that children only go home with the correct family member or guardian. Learn more about our procedures if this is Your First Visit.

We should also mention that we always have a lot of fun as well! It is our belief that God wants us to enjoy church! We look forward to meeting you and your child next Sunday!


TUESDAY NIGHTS FOR KIDS

Join us for Kids Ministry on Tuesday Nights from 6:00-8:00 pm. We are committed to helping your children grow in faith, and here’s what we have planned to do that:

Preschool age children will doing activities from the “Treasure Hunters”  and the “Kids Honor Club” curriculums from the National Center for Biblical Parenting. We will have rooms open for the 0-1 year olds, 2 year olds, and  3-5 year olds.

Elementary age kids will focus on discipleship, prayer and worship, They will engage with the “Comparative Worldview Curriculum” that will help them see the truth and benefit of a Christian worldview. There will also be fun games and activities.

This isn’t just a repeat of Sundays. You won’t want to miss this!


SERVING WITH KIDS MINISTRY

What if the best way for a kid to know God is to know someone who knows God? Serving with our Kids Ministry is a great way to impact these young lives…and it doesn’t take a certified teaching degree to do so! When you serve with a ministry, it doesn't just benefit those you're serving. It also fills you up! Our volunteers learn and grow through their service. If you're a parent of a young family, this is also a wonderful way to meet other families in the same stage of life as you. Join us!

Volunteer with us!


CHILD DEDICATIONS

Dedicating your child to the Lord is an important spiritual milestone in your family. During child dedication, you make a series of commitments to:

1. Acknowledge your child as a gift from God and commit to loving your child unconditionally.
2. Desire your child to love God by following Jesus and understand that you, the parent, are and will be the primary influence and example.
2. Partner with God’s family, the church, and commit to regular involvement in the community life of the church.

We hold child dedications throughout the year, often on the fifth Sunday of a month during service. If you would like to sign up for the next one, please email .
