We love children and believe that teaching them God’s truth beginning at a very early age is crucial. We have fun while teaching children through age-appropriate lessons and activities in a safe environment. Our desire is to cultivate growing faith in our growing kids! Kids ministry classes are offered during both the 9:00 AM and the 10:30 AM services. For more information, contact Melissa Norman.
DECEMBER 9 | 10-11:30AM
A morning of fun created especially for 2nd and 3rd grade girls. Pre-registration is required.
The Woodlands is a place where young children can come and learn stories from the Bible, stories that are made relevant to their lives through small group story time, activities, crafts, and worship.
Fusion is just for kids in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. Kids will sit with their parents during worship time and are then dismissed to the Family Life Center Gym for large group Bible teaching, large group activities and games, and small group discussion time.
Fusion+ is our Pre-Teen space just for kids in 4th and 5th grades. We take a deeper dive into God's word during our large group Bible teaching time and small group discussions. Fusion+ kids sit with their parents during worship and are then dismissed to the Family Life Center.
Enjoy a great cup of coffee (or tea) and connect with other women and let the children bring the chaos. Moms, feel free to bring your strollers, riding toys, and kiddos to the Ministry Center Gym. This open gym time will be a great way for our littlest ones to get their wiggles out while women grab a cup of coffee and connect with one another. For more information, click here.
Kids ministry is available during both services. Follow the signs to enter the church lobby and look for the "First Time Kids Checkin" Table as you walk through the doors. Here a member of our Hospitality Team will walk you through the registration process.
At the First Time Kids Checkin Table, we will ask you to provide us some basic information about yourself and your children. You can do that in person or online in advance.
For your child's safety, at check-in, you will be given name tag for your child along with a parent tag that must be presented in order to pick up your child at the end of the service.
A member of our Hospitality Team will escort you to the appropriate classrooms for your children. The Woodlands classrooms are divided by age and are located directly adjacent to the auditorium.
School-aged (grades K-5) children will join you in the auditorium for the music portion of our worship service. They will then be dismissed to the lobby where Kid's Ministry volunteers will walk them over to the gymnasium (in the Family Life Center across the parking lot) for our Fusion and Fusion+ programs. You are welcome to walk with them if you would like!

Dads today are often overwhelmed with both the responsibility and the complexity of raising sons in this challenging culture. At the same time, self-initiation is killing our young men. Without strong mentors, boys are walking alone into a wilderness of conflicting messages about who they should be as men. It's no wonder that our sons are confused about what the world expects from them and what they should expect of themselves.
The Intentional Father is a helpful antidote. This concise book is filled with practical steps to help men raise sons of consequence--young men who know what they believe, know who they are, and will stand up against the negative cultural trends of our day. Jon Tyson lays out a clear path for fathers and sons that includes specific activities, rites of passage, and significant "marking moments" that can be customized to fit any family.
It's not enough to hope our sons will become good men. We need them to be good at being men. This book shows how fathers, grandfathers, and other male mentors how to lead the way.
