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

Nursery care (birth-3 years) will be offered during the entire 10:30 service.

Children’s Church is available after the Praise and Worship time during the 10:30 service. PreK and Elementary students will join parents in the Worship Center until after Praise and Worship. When dismissed, they will go to their respective classrooms for their class time. 

*Childcare will be provided during the 9:00 hour for those wishing to attend adult Sunday school. 

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 at 9:00 am before the 10:30 service! JH and HS students will all be together, and we will wrestle together with some of the tough questions we all have about our faith. The purpose of this time will be to encourage our teens to own their faith, by seeking to more fully know the God who is bigger than all our questions. We will do so through study of his Word and the use of resources available to us. After class, teens will be encouraged to attend the worship service with their families at 10:30 am.

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