Our aim as a family equipping ministry is to engage, equip, and encourage parents in the daily task of discipling their children toward a lifetime of following Jesus. With that in mind, we have put together a Parent Worship Guide to equip you as you walk through the various aspects of our weekly worship gathering with your kids.



Sundays, 9:30am (during service)

Our nursery is available every Sunday during our worship service and most special events for infants and toddlers. On a child's 4th birthday, they will stay with parents during service. Our dedicated and loving nursery staff shepherd children each week as parents worship in service. A cry room is also provided during worship services for those who do not wish to utilize the nursery.



Sundays, during sermon  

Children age 4-6 (Kindergarten) are encouraged to worship with their families the first half of our worship service before being dismissed for the Children’s Lesson where they will be challenged in their faith through age appropriate lessons and activities. Our volunteers spend time shepherding children through activities, play, song, and curriculum, to see Jesus as the central hero in all of Scripture. To volunteer, please contact Judy Boerboom. Please note: Children’s Church availability is subject to change. 



Wednesdays during the School Year, September 3 through April 24, 6:15pm

Children (Kindergarten through 6th grade) participate in our weekly AWANA Scripture memory program every Wednesday throughout the school year (September-April). AWANA establishes a welcoming and supportive environment where children, from every background and cultural setting, learn how a personal relationship with Christ affects their everyday lives. For more information about AWANA, be sure to check out their website.
