MISSION STATEMENT

We strive to be a welcoming community of growing disciples that worship God and share a message of grace, hope, and love with the world around us.

WE DESIRE FOR OUR STUDENTS TO:

Seek and fall in love with the heart of God and reflect His image to those we encounter in the world.
Have a solid foundation in the Word of God, the Bible.
Discover the beautiful truths of who God is and who He calls us to be.
Become confident in our identity as sons and daughters of God the Father.
Model the life of Christ by serving the people around us and doing great works for the Kingdom.
Learn to listen to the Holy Spirit and follow His lead in our lives.

WEEKEND SERVICES

BIRTH - 2 YEARS OLD

In Birth to 2 your child will begin the exciting journey of discovering eternal treasures that are found in God’s Word, the Bible. Children are never too young to learn! Your children are lovingly cared for by wonderful staff and volunteers. We strive to make our nursery allergen-free by only serving Rice Chex. Staff will notify parents when their child is ready to move into the 3 Year Old Room. We prefer that your child is potty-trained to make this move.

Questions? Email Nursery & Childcare Coordinator Megan Schrock.

3 - 5 YEARS OLD

We have the privilege to partner with you to help your child experience Bringing the Bible to Life. Each Saturday and Sunday, your child will participate in free play, a visit to The Playground, fun worship songs, a Bible lesson and more, in order to create a very interactive and teachable time. They will be served a snack of Rice Chex or animal crackers.

Questions? Email Nursery & Childcare Coordinator Megan Schrock.

K - 6TH GRADE

Our First Free Kids in Kindergarten - 6th grade participate in the Discovery Land program during weekend services. Our programming consists of worship time together, a high-energy and fun activity during Discover Time, and a Bible lesson tied to a specific portion of Scripture each week. Students learn about God through hands-on activities geared toward what kids love.
