Children’s Ministries

Mission and Vision

We exist to equip children to learn about God, grow in their faith, and serve in the church and community as we support parents and caregivers in the discipleship of their children. Our desire is that every child would have a personal relationship with Christ and seek to live a life that is honoring to Him.

Safety Procedures

Toys: We have lots of fun toys here at church! We ask that children leave their toys at home. (We will make exceptions if a fidget toy is necessary—please contact Bethany Hirschy).

Snacks: Please let us know if your child has any food allergies as we often serve snacks.

Diapers: Volunteers will use gloves and wipe down the changing table after each use. A sticker will be placed on your child’s diaper to let you know they have been changed!

Stay Home: If your child is showing any symptoms of illness (cough, runny nose, vomiting, fever, etc.) please keep them home until 24hrs after the symptoms pass (fever free for 24hrs without medication).

Check-in

To assure the safety and security of your child, we have instituted the use of Elexio Check-In. This is a check-in and child information program that is used nationwide by churches, schools, and daycare providers.

Elexio Check-In ensures that only the people you designate can pick up your child from the church.
