    Our Mission:

To assist families in inviting their children into a life-changing and ever-growing relationship with Jesus Christ  


Nursery Newborns up to 12 months
 Welcome to the beautiful jungle inspired nursery for all infants. You can feel safe leaving your little one with our caregivers who all have Act 24 clearances and special trainings. A cry room, with a live showing of the service, is available to all those who need a place to sit with their little one. 

2 & 3 Year Olds
Through sensory interaction, storytelling, repletion, encouraging worship, and quarterly celebration your young one will learn the fundamental truth that God made them, loves them, and is with them. 

 4 & 5 Year Olds and Kindergarten
Through exciting exploration, interactive storytelling, purposeful response time, and connecting through games and crafts, your child will experience the WONDER of who God is!

1st through 5th Grade
Kids will have the chance to anticipate, celebrate, respond, and be blessed in a participatory environment while learning about God's redemptive plan revealed through the Big God Story.

Tru Kids Throughout the Year

Fall Family Celebration: Held in early or mid October, this event is for families of all ages to come together and celebrate the Harvest Season. This year we will be attending a hayride and bonfire at Soergel Orchards!
 Christmas Pageant: All children, Kindergarten through 6th grade, are invited to participate in our annual Christmas Pageant. Rehearsals are scheduled once a week and begin in early November. Performances are held at a local personal care home and during the 9:15 church service in mid-December. Watch for a parent meeting and sign ups in late October.
 Advent Activity:
Each year, we create a package an Advent Activity to be offered to the congregation at a minimal price or we host an Advent Wreath Making Party. Each project provides a great opportunity for families, couples, and singles to keep focused on the true meaning of Christmas during the busy weeks leading up to Christ's birth. It also makes a great gift!
 Resurrection Celebration: This event is for families of all ages and is held either Palm Sunday or a weekend right before Easter. Age appropriate activities are planned to give participants hands on experience of events of Holy Week and Jesus' resurrection. The event concludes with a giant egg hunt on the church property!
 Summer Surge: Check out our sub page on the right hand column to learn more about the best three weeks of the summer!
 Break out: This discipleship program for 4th and 5th grades is held in the Rec Room on Tuesdays from 4:15-5:30 p.m. Watch for dates in the bulletin. Bring money for pizza!
 The Next Big Step: All 5th graders are invited to this program held in the spring. Watch for more details!
