Children and Family

Children and Family


Our children and family ministry programs:

  • Teach kids of all ages that they are loved by God, no matter what.
  • Encourage kids to share God’s love with others through service and simple acts of kindness.
  • Remind families to never stop growing in their spiritual and faith development.
  • Offer a safe place for children and families of all kinds to come and enjoy community, fellowship, and God’s love.


What is Christ’s Carousel?

  • It is an exciting adventure for kids in preschool through fifth grade based on the rotation model for Sunday School.
  • It starts at 9:00 and 10:45 on Sunday mornings. Each week begins with a large group time before separating into age-based groups for workshops.
  • Bible themes and stories are introduced and explored over a five week period. Kids are encouraged to touch, taste, feel, hear, and experience the story through different media and materials.
  • Our classrooms are very inviting and kid-friendly. Props, toys, and decorations  create a unique feel in each room.


Children are enriched each weekend in Sunday School with strategic and fun programming!

Sunday Morning Live
Here the lessons come alive through books, drama, and storytelling. We use activities and games that encourage kids to relate the Bible lessons to their everyday lives.

Art in Heaven
This is the place to explore the lessons with a variety of art materials and create projects that encourage kids to share with their families what they have learned

Solid Rock Café
Here, lessons are turned into yummy treats, which we prepare and cook within our own café.

Joyful Jams
We sing, play, and dance the lessons into life using our voices, musical instruments, or recorded music.

MasterPeace Theater
Our own movie theater, complete with a popcorn machine! Here, we get to see the story take place on the big screen.


Our caring nursery staff are available to take care of your children ages 0-3 during both the 9:03 & 10:30 am worship services in our clean, vibrant, and fun nursery room.


Mark your calendars now!  We will host VBS 2017 June 12 – 16 from 9:00 am – 12:30 pm each day.  There will be many volunteer needs, and Larissa would love to have some new faces helping out and being part of our VBS week this year, so start planning now to spend Vacation Bible School with us!
