“We are, as teachers and parents, interpreters of God’s Word, translating it into a child’s language. We are dictionaries defining things and encyclopedias explaining things to help children know God better – enabling them to worship Him.” –Kathleen Chapman
We have an awesome kids program called Roots for nursery to 5th grade, that starts when the service starts. If it is your first time try to come a little bit early so that we can help you find your children’s classroom. On the first Sunday of the month we have a family worship time… then we release them to their classes.
ROOTS: Giving Kids a Foundation in Christ is a children’s ministry serving children from birth to 5th grade. Roots strives to partner with families in order to grow their kids closer to Jesus. Roots primary contact with children and their families occurs on Sunday Mornings in the TreeHouse. The TreeHouse, our kid’s church, teaches children who God is and what He has done for us in loving, interactive, and age appropriate ways including small group, prayer, application and worship. Roots also organizes additional opportunities for children and their families to grow in Christ.
- FamilyServe is a monthly event that provides families with service opportunities within the church and community.
- Kids Feeding Kids is our on-going global outreach feeding kids in Haiti and Peru as well as teaching them about Jesus.
- Faith At Home places tools and materials in the hands of parents/guardians to better equip them to lead their children in the knowledge of God.
- What Does This Mean For Me teaches older children in more depth what it means to be a Christian in today’s world and what spiritual disciplines and the practices of the church mean.
