Children are a blessing from God. We are passionate about creating an environment that is safe, age-appropriate and fun. We teach the Bible in a creative and relevant way, allowing children to grow in their relationship with Christ. Our Children's Ministry is divided by age into three groups: Nursery, Preschool and 4REAL Kids - with each having a time of worship, prayer, and interactive lessons. We also offer Sunday School classes for children age 2 through 6th grade.
Safety is paramount. We utilize a secure check-in system that gives a unique code each week to the child and to the parent to use for drop-off and pick-up.
Join the fun and experience a world where children meet Jesus on their level!
Nursery is geared toward children ages birth-24 months. During your child’s visit, they are cared for both emotionally and physically. Nursery staff will change diapers, bottle feed, serve parent-provided snacks, hold, rock and comfort your child throughout their stay. In nursery, children participate in free play and hear simple Bible stories and songs.
Preschool is geared toward children ages 2-5. Preschool staff are committed to encouraging little ones to eagerly explore the world God created and to help them understand the wonder of His love for each of them. During the service, 4REAL Jr. service, staff will lead your children through a meaningful Bible lesson using the First Look Preschool Orange curriculum, followed by an exciting activity or craft. Lessons are kept simple and fun, and focus on one of the following three foundational truths: God made me; God loves me; Jesus wants to be my friend forever. It is our hope that these truths take a firm hold of our children's hearts and are carried with them for the rest of their lives.
Each weekend, children age 6 - 6th grade are invited to participate in a dynamic, high-energy worship service designed just for them during our service. 4REAL is a fun and purposeful time of worship and teaching to learn more about God in a relevant way. We encourage the children to talk to God at any time and in any place. 4REAL staff are committed to helping your child grow in every aspect of their relationship with Jesus Christ and knowledge of His Word by understanding why we worship in the first place. Our staff have a passion for serving in children’s ministry and have a deep desire to see children know, love and serve Christ.
This is not your typical Sunday School program. While many churches have abandoned Sunday School, we value 4REAL CORE as a special time for us to gather together for discipleship starting young. We offer a relevant hour of teaching that is well-attended and allows children to grow in their knowledge of Scripture, to develop a biblical worldview, and to be increasingly able to apply the gospel to every area of their lives.
So, what is 4Real Core?
4 Real Core is made up of classes where children are grouped by age and taught interactive lessons from the Bible. Children participate in singing, playing games, and sometimes even making things that will help them know more about Jesus and the stories in the Bible. They are encouraged to bring their Bibles and learn memory verses. The way the curriculum is set up the classes are teaching their way through the entire Bible from Old to New Testament.
When is 4Real Core? From 9:45-10:45 AM
What will you do as a parent while your child attends 4Real Core?
We offer many adult classes during this hour on many different topics. There is a Women’s Group, a Men’s Group, and several additional classes. There is also coffee available in the Connection Café.
Is it really worth coming to church for an extra hour?
Absolutely. Your child will learn how to use their Bible, how to pray, and be challenged to learn memory verses. They will be engaged in a way that fits their age and in an interactive way.
