Journey.Kids Children's Ministries is a place for every child from newborn through sixth grade to learn and grow in the love of Jesus.
During Sunday morning worship, the journey begins in First Steps Nursery, where babies up to age 3 are provided a safe, loving, and nurturing environment as their parents worship without distraction knowing their little ones are well cared for during every service. At age 3, preschoolers move to Stepping Stones, where the Bible comes alive through stories, songs, activities and hands-on crafts. The adventure continues in Journey.Kids service, where elementary aged children can discover all that God has in store for them, through high-energy praise and worship, fun games, and most importantly, learning from the word of God. Our nursery is located near the front entrance of the main building, and the Stepping Stones and Journey.Kids services take place in their rooms in our gym area.
On Sunday nights, while the younger children are in the nursery or Stepping Stones, elementary aged children remain in the sanctuary with their parents, allowing families a chance to worship God together. On Wednesday nights, all boys and girls preschool age and up are a part of the MPact Girls Ministry or Royal Rangers, which are held in classrooms in the gym. All kids also have a chance to be involved in Boys and Girls Missionary Challenge, Junior Bible Quiz, and E-LIFE, and our Timothy Club provides specific leadership and discipleship training opportunities for 4th-6th graders. If your child has any special needs, please contact us for more information on the "Alex's Angels" buddy program; we would be honored to help your whole family be a part of our services.
During Wednesday evening service, preschool aged boys and girls are a part of Rainbows. Noah's Ark provides an exciting theme for the Bible stories, crafts, full-color activity pages, and games for this preschool club. Rainbows add colorful animal badges to their vests as they complete requirements for the achievement program. Once they have completed kindergarten, girls become MPact Girls and boys become Royal Rangers.
MPact Girls Ministry is about intentional outreach and Christian discipleship for girls, sharing biblical truths that will help them learn to make God-pleasing decisions. MPact Girls clubs for elementary aged girls include Daisies (kindergarten), Prims (first and second grades), and Stars (third through fifth grades), all of which include fun lessons, activities, and outreach events that not only allow the girls to reach achievement levels within their clubs, but also provide opportunities for them to share the love of Jesus with the world around them.

Royal Rangers is a mentoring program for future men, providing Christlike character formation and servant leadership development for boys and young men in a highly relational and fun environment. Our mission is to evangelize, equip, and empower the next generation of Christlike men and lifelong servant leaders. In our Rangers program, boys who are in kindergarten through second grade are Ranger Kids, and older boys are Discovery Rangers. Find out more on the national Royal Rangers website.
