Partnering with Parents to Make Disciples

Little Village (birth - K)

In our Preschool ministry (ages birth-K), we strive to create the first building blocks of a strong, gospel-centered foundation for our children. We teach from the Scriptures and help parents proclaim to their kids who God is and what He has done in the person and work of Jesus Christ. During the weekends, in Little Village, we sing, dance and teach the Bible to the kids, focusing on our five foundational truths: God made everything, God is in charge of everything, God is good, Jesus came to save sinners, and God wants to talk with us.

Our volunteers are required to be trained and screened, and we maintain strict teacher-to-child ratios to ensure safe care. For health standards, children must be free from fever or symptoms of contagious disease for 24 hours. Let us know of any allergies or medical conditions your child may have.

Baby Dedication

When dedicating your baby, you celebrate a commitment to raise your child in the ways of the Lord. You also commit to joining a community of believers who help you and hold you accountable. To help equip we provide a baby dedication booklet to guide you through hosting your own baby dedication with friends and family.

Kids Village (1st - 5th grade)

In our Elementary ministry (1st-5th grade), we work to continue building up a strong, gospel-centered foundation for our children. We do this by teaching our kids about the nature and character of God—that He is wise, generous, loving and good. Our hope is to partner with parents in the discipleship of their children by creating environments, curriculum and resources that center on the gospel of Jesus Christ. On the weekends, in Kids Village, we worship through song, tell stories from the Bible and gather in small groups by age to talk about Scripture together.

Child Baptism

We treat the baptism of children with special care and have created a class to help parents of 1st – 5th graders walk through the process with their children. The class lasts three weeks, and you must attend all three classes. If your child expresses interest in baptism, please get in touch with our Next Gen staff to talk about next steps.

Middle School

In our Middle School ministry (6th-8th grade), we seek to increase that strong, gospel-centered foundation in our students through learning and studying the Word of God and living out biblical community in small groups. Middle school is where our students get their first experience of what group life is like within the church. Led by trained adult leaders, our groups meet weekly to foster community, accountability and friendships. Our hope is to partner with parents in helping students go deeper with each other, their leaders and, most importantly, God. 

High School

In our High School ministry (9th-12th grade), we seek to keep building gospel maturity in our students and help them grow in deeper relationships with each other, their leaders and, most importantly, the Lord. On a weekly basis, our students meet in small groups that are broken up by age and gender to learn and study God’s Word and to foster biblical community at a young age. Our High School ministry is part of Groups ministry. Led by trained adult leaders, our groups meet to foster community, accountability and friendships.

Baptism

We treat the baptism of students with special care and want to help parents walk through the process with their children. If your middle or high schooler expresses interest in baptism, set up an interview with our   so we can help you determine next steps.
