King’s Kids

Is a worship experience designed to incite wonder, provoke discovery and fuel passion in the hearts of our children who are 5 years old through 5th grade. This hour-long worship experience takes place in our King’s Kids room in the Children’s Wing at 9:30 am on Sunday mornings. Our adult volunteers help kids discover Jesus and reflect his character to the world around them. Children are invited to begin in the sanctuary with their parents. They will then meet the King’s Kids volunteers at the back of the sanctuary after a time of praise to proceed to their own worship experience.

After School Camp

Children from Kindergarten through 5th grade gather after school for snack, homework, playtime, crafts, movies, and fun. Summer programming includes swimming, trips to movie theatres, a pumpkin patch, conservation areas, and local museums.
