We love children but even more importantly God loves children! Jesus said, “Let the children come to me for such is the Kingdom of Heaven.” Children can be full-fledged citizens of Heaven with all the rights, privileges, and responsibilities that come with that position. It is our delight to partner with parents in equipping your children for the work of the ministry. We must be Elis to these little Samuels teaching them to recognize His voice and joyfully follow Him into the fullness of their calling. God does not want to wait until they are adults to have an intimate relationship with them and include them in what He is doing.
In our children’s ministry they will learn that God loves them and has a plan for their life, experience the presence of God, grow in relationship with the Godhead, and learn to walk in the fullness of all that God has for them. Our children by God’s amazing design have gifts, talents, calls, and destinies that don’t have to wait to be magically revealed when they turn 18. They don’t have a junior Holy Spirit but they carry the same power that raised Jesus from the dead and He wants to use them to release His love and power to the world!
Children (toddlers through 5th grade) are released after worship. Parents please check them in at either station located in the foyer of the “Staples” entrance. You will receive a name tag for each child and an alphanumeric code to be shown when picking them up after service.
