Children/Youth »


There are many educational and fun programs offered in our Children’s Ministry. Our programs include:

Nursery care during both the 9:00 and 10:30 am Sunday worship services.

Children’s Church is available during 2nd service. The Pre-K (3+ years old) class will meet in the nursery at the beginning of the service.         K-5th grade will meet in the North Wing after Praise and Worship.

Dig In lessons create experiences where kids make discoveries, helping them to take ownership of their faith. 

5th Sundays of the month only Nursery will be provided.

Wednesday Night Kaos: 6:30-8:00 pm on Wednesdays. Join in learning and experiencing the Bible in fun and meaningful ways. All kids are actively involved in the evening. We end the evening in a prayer circle, sharing concerns and sharing "God Sightings" from previous prayer concerns.

Each ministry is designed to have kids actively involved in learning about Jesus and His deep love for us!! Why choose only one.....we would love to see you Sunday morning and Wednesday night!!

The most powerful hurricane is called a Category 5. But the power of Christian youth is far greater than any kind of weather or natural power. Because of Christ in our lives, we have the power it takes to be called a Category 6ix!

Category 6ix is a place for Junior High and High School students to hang out with friends and grow in their relationship with God. We play exciting games and talk about things that matter in a teen’s life.

Sunday School meets during the 10:30 service on Sunday mornings. The Junior High & High School groups meet separately in the youth room with a dynamic team of teachers leading them each week!

High School Students - Youth Group & Small Groups meet on Sunday evenings from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm in the Worship Center.

Junior High Students - Youth Group and Small Groups meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm in the Worship Center.

What to expect at youth group - We start together as a large group playing a game. We then gather for the evening message & then break into small groups for girls & boys that are age-appropriate. During this time, coaches dig deeper with students by asking questions relating to Scripture, the curriculum, and student needs. Relationships are built and strengthened through meeting regularly, praying together, and offering accountability.
