About Our Children's Ministry
Our Children’s Ministry is known as bKids (be Kingdom Inspired Disciples who Serve). Our vision is to inspire children with the Word of God and teach them how to disciple others through service. We provide a safe, exciting, Christ-centered ministry for infants through 5th graders for both services on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. For young infants, we offer a nursery and for older mobile infants we provide a crawler’s room to help them achieve their developmental milestones. We have a toddler classroom for 12-24 month old’s as well.
What We Teach
Our ministry utilizes Orange curriculum for 2 year olds through 5th graders. Orange is a strategy that combines the influences of the church and home to incite wonder, provoke discovery, and fuel passion in the hearts of the next generation. For pre-school and younger it is called First Look and for K-5 it is called 252. In our K-5th grades we have a live praise and worship large group and then break off into small groups within classrooms. Find more information HERE. We are also proud to provide Sunday service to children with special needs in our Freedom classroom. This classroom is open at our 10:15am service and is equipped with parents of children with special needs or other highly trained volunteers to ensure the best experience for your child. Our philosophy is not to babysit your kids, but to nurture them, pray for them, and help them grow closer to the Lord! We partner with parents to train our children to “love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength, and to love one another.” (Luke 10:27)
Ready to Serve?
If you are interested in purposeful, rewarding, and fun ways to serve, our Children’s Ministry is excited to share more about what we do. We love to grow leaders. We often have openings as teachers and teacher assistants in classrooms as well as praise and worship leaders. If you like behind the scenes work, we appreciate the help of individuals to assist with curriculum preparation and office/technology support within our ministry. If you would like to know more, please email our Volunteer Coordinator Patty Divincenzo. For enhanced safety, all children are checked in through our registration system and must have matching security tags for pickup. We hope to see you and your children at our services soon!

DC4K (Divorce Care for Kids): We believe that God is the ultimate healer and if you know a child(ren) who have experienced the divorce of their parents we provide a support group to help them process their feelings and cope. Our next DC4K support group will begin in October 2017. Please email us at Marinda Skeesick more information.
