Children

The Children's Ministry seeks to provide children in Grades 1-6 with fun, engaging Bible-learning experiences that help them grow through following Jesus' example, loving others, and taking their next steps with Christ. 

Most children's activities take place on the second floor of our Children's Building (map). Volunteers are available at the Welcome Desk to assist you.


SAFETY & SECURITY

Your child's safety is at the forefront of our ministry.
Staff and volunteers who work in the Children's Ministries go through training and have undergone a criminal background check.

NEW CHRISTIAN CLASS: discovery class for children who have recently made a decision to follow Christ

Parents are encouraged to enroll their children in this class as their next step in becoming a believer. Children will discover what it means to be a follower of Jesus; how to pray; to read God's word; the significance of baptism; and how to share their story of becoming a Christian. Classes are offered periodically throughout the year.

For more information, contact Lezah Maitland.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL: week-long day-camp held each summer

Children who have completed kindergarten through grade 5 learn about God's plan and love for us through music, recreation, Bible stories, games, crafts, and skits.

Preteens who have finished grade 6 are invited to bring their friends to XA Camp, a special 6th grade-only evening VBS event.
