Raise a Generation for Christ
Our gsKidz ministry serves Birth through Grade 5 and is offered during our weekend. We believe the best way to prepare kids for their future is to partner with parents. Why? Because developing kids to stand firm, and have faith that sticks depends on this partnership. Our Kidz Ministry is committed to families in two ways. First, we are committed to guide and equip parents with tools and resources to help them be the primary spiritual influencers in their homes. Second, we are committed to teaching God’s truths to kids through relevant Bible teaching, music, group discussion and age appropriate activities. Kids are in a safe and secure environment. All volunteers and leaders are carefully screened. Our facilities and emergency procedures have been approved by the leadership and a stringent security process is in place for all kids. If you are a new family, we suggest you arrive 20 minutes early so we can walk with you to your child’s rooms. As kids learn Biblical truths and experience God’s love at home and church, their faith will grow and develop into a faith that sticks!
Nursery & Preschool
In our nursery – two’s, our goal is simple—that your child will begin to learn and understand that God loves them. How do we do that? Through the care of committed volunteers, as well as activity and story times that reinforce the Bible story of the month. These early encounters let each child know they are valued and begin to build a foundation for a relationship with God. Please bring diapers, bottles, pacifiers, and any special blankets that will soothe your baby through the morning.
Preschool provides purposeful connections where kids discover that they belong to God, Jesus loves them, and he has a job for them to do. Each week in Preschool, caring volunteers lead our 3-year-olds through young 5’s in worship, a Bible story, and a key concept that ties the morning together.
Kindergarten through 3rd grade
Early Elementary is for children in Kindergarten through 3rd grades. Worship in the KidStuff Theatre is a time of song, praise, and Bible study that is geared toward children. Biblical truths are presented on a weekly basis through a variety of age appropriate and dynamic avenues! Children will enjoy dramas and inspiring worship.
During the program our children will also have the opportunity to participate in “community group” activities with children their age. Our community group or small group time is where the children are discipled to receiving Christ as Lord of their life and then following Christ into the world and throughout their day. Biblical truths are solidified through interactive games and discussion. We highly encourage you to get involved with what your child is studying and to make applications throughout the week!

Growth Groups is gsKidz ‘midweek’ discipleship program for Kindergarten through Fifth grade. These groups are designed to help your child grow in their knowledge and relationship with God, as well as, facilitate an environment that fosters positive friendships.
