All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.
— Isaiah 54:13 ESV

Being a parent is hard work. It’s a 24/7 responsibility and no one can influence the heart of your children better than you! The church is here to partner with you on this journey. The Bible tells us our children are made up of three parts: physical, mental, and spiritual. We provide a variety of ministries because it takes more than one activity to be spiritually healthy.

Our Goal

Our goal is to provide the best ministry possible to all kids birth to 12 years-old. We want every child to feel safe and accepted in a fun, Christ-centered environment. The church can only be partially effective without your partnership. We encourage you to talk with us so we can help your children develop spiritually as much as possible.

Safety is a Priority

Each Kids Ministry team member undergoes a background check and training for working with kids. All of our environments utilize our electronic "Check-Ins” system for secure check-in and check-out. This system has multiple layers of security but is very simple and convenient for parents. It will also allow us to see your child’s up-to-date safety information right on their name tag. You can even pre-register your child before your visit if you’d like by clicking below.

Service types

FAMILY EXPERIENCE (FX)

This is where kids bring their families to experience the hope of Christ together. The FX (Family Experience) environment takes funny sketches and worship and combines them with a short, creative message for the purpose of partnering with parents. What families experience together gives them the ability to take their faith home and talk about it throughout the week.

Sundays

Kids Connect

This is where kids connect with God, leaders, and each other. Kids Connect begins with an exciting large group Bible time. Then age  appropriate Small Groups take the hands-on approach to make the life application of God’s Word personal.

Preschool & Nursery

Groups are offered for babies through pre-kindergarten children during the services and on Sunday nights. Our nursery provides a loving and safe environment for babies to grow and to learn about God’s love. Preschoolers learn about Jesus through music, exciting Bible stories, crafts and play time. These groups are staffed by safe dedicated teachers and parent volunteers.

Events

Family Fun Nights

Our Family Fun Night activities are planned at various times throughout the year and offer group discount rates to local attractions.   This is an excellent opportunity for connections between people of all ages and it’s just plain fun!!  Activities we enjoy include sports events (Suns and Diamondbacks games), roller skating, indoor trampoline venues, game nights and more!  It’s awesome to see the friendships that grow through these events.

Summer sunday nights

Kids have a blast each summer learning about wisdom, faith and friendship.  Jesus said, “Everyone who hears my words and puts them into practice is like a wise man.”   Our exciting summer program offers age appropriate group activities, cool Bible stories and more! 

Trunk or Treat

At this event, we fill a section of our parking lot with volunteers who park their cars, decorate their trunks and hand out candy to the kids. We also have inflatables, games and food (at a minimal cost). Our Trunk or Treat event is held on the Friday before Halloween.

This event is a great way to connect with other volunteers as we reach out to the families in our community for a night of fun and tons of candy!  Get the whole family involved!  We want to get the gospel of Jesus in the hands of each child that walks onto our campus (the Book of Hope).

Kid’s Christmas Musical

The Kids Christmas Musical is a creative and fun way for 1st-6th graders to share the story of Christmas with our church. This is an opportunity for our children to proclaim the Gospel to their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and church at large, with the acting and singing talents God has given them!


Clubs

Boys Ministry

Jesus isn’t part of the big story - He is the point of the story, from Genesis to Revelation. Each week, leaders help these stories come to life through a large group lesson and then break into small (age-appropriate) groups. The Gospel Project is a Christ-centered, Bible curriculum and chronological timeline of Bible events. The truths are reinforced with games, videos, activities, and more. Boys may enter the program at any time.

Girls Ministry

Girls love relationships! Our Girls Ministry program is designed to provide encouragement, support, and accountability through lasting relationships. It also provides an environment for girls to develop their gifts and abilities, grow spiritually and learn how to make a difference in the world around them. These age appropriate classes help girls to become the best they can be in Jesus! Girls may enter the program at any time.

Kids Choir

Kids Choir offers a quality music program for 1st-6th graders and emphasizes musical skills, vocal technique , ministering through music and having fun. Our Kids Choir sings regularly in the Family Experience, adult services and our annual Kids Christmas Musical.
