Nursery to Pre-K
When was the first time you heard about God? What if it happened early, so early that you never lived a day without believing that He really loves you? If 3-year-olds can believe God loves them, will this make a difference when they're 13? When they're 23? Could this belief change their future?
In our nursery rooms, we get a first chance to make a lasting impression about our Heavenly Father. We want kids to learn three things here:
- God made me
- God loves me
- Jesus wants to be my friend forever
Logistics: Nursery care is available at 9 & 10:45am, during our Sunday gatherings (only at 9am during the summer through September 2). Let us know if you're a guest; we want to make your visit a great experience. Our early childhood director is Tammy Henderson.
Baby dedications are a time for families and the church to pray in a worship gathering for infants and young children. Email Judy Buss and let her know you're interested in baby dedications.
940. Nine-hundred forty. That's the number of weekends we have from the time our kids are born until they graduate from high school. If your child is in third grade, they have 469 weekends left!
It happens fast. We want to partner with you to help your child discover and embrace a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. There are three truths we want every child to know when they leave fifth grade:
- I can trust God no matter what
- I need to make the wise choice
- I should treat others the way I want to be treated
Logistics: Kids Connection classes are for kids in Kindergarten through fifth grade. Kids meet on Sundays at 9 & 10:45am (on break through September 2; kids join us at 9am for big church). Families check in at our Children's Ministry desk, then head upstairs for classes. Let us know if you're a guest - we want you to feel super comfortable here. Our children's minister is Judy Buss.

Kids, youth and adults who have professed a faith in Jesus as Lord and asked Him to forgive their sins are encouraged to be baptized. Email lead pastor Tyler Butenschoen if you are interested in baptisms.
We'd give anything to see our kids love Jesus. As a church community, we want to see kids develop a deep, growing faith that sticks with them into adulthood. As parents, we want to help our kids develop a deep, growing faith that follows them out of our homes and into the world. Our best work is done together, as a church and families, giving our students practical ways to apply and experience the gospel of Jesus Christ in their daily lives.
