Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."
We believe every young person was created to – and is able to – know God. We believe it is in fact essential for everyone to “receive the kingdom of God like a child.” (Luke 18:17) Therefore, our purpose is to see every child, student and young adult led to salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ – by grace, because no one seeks God and his righteousness on their own and through faith, being “the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” (Rom. 3:10-11, Heb. 11:1)
During the Sunday Service, we provide nursery care for children under three years old, and Children's Church for those three and four years old. Both serve to allow parents to engage with worship and God's word, as well as providing age-appropriate exposure for children to God's grace through the care of teachers and volunteers.
During the equipping hour, we continue to provide nursery care, as well as Sunday School classes for all ages, from pre-K through 12th grade. These classes attempt to guide young disciples in their maturing relationship with Christ, from the most basic truths - God made me, God loves me, Jesus wants to be my friend forever - through the more complex challenges of applying scripture to life, and sharing one's faith with friends.
