More than anything else, kids need unbelievable and unconditional love. In this message, Pastor John explains how Children are a gift from God. He describes 7 key points pulled directly from the Bible that God, the Father, says are necessary to follow when raising kids.
We’re here to come alongside families with relevance and grace at each stage of their journey. We support families as they seek to teach their children about God and His beautiful design for the family and equip themselves to make a greater difference in the lives of those around them. Explore our family ministry programs listed below.
We provide friendly, loving nursery volunteers to care for your child in a safe environment during our Sunday Gathering. In the Living Vine Nursery, our goal is to provide a safe and clean environment where babies sense God’s love. Through songs and play, our hope is that our little ones hear three basic truths: “God loves me, God made me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever.”
During our Sunday Gathering, toddlers are provided with a safe and loving environment where they can explore and feed their natural curiosity. Kids get to play, hear a Bible story, enjoy a snack and make friends. By partnering with parents, kids learn what it means to be lifelong followers of Jesus.
During our Sunday Gathering, children are welcomed by an adult greeter and are invited to sit in a circle with the storyteller, who will share the Godly Play Story of the day. In Godly Play, we tell Bible stories to encourage children to enter the stories and relate them to their personal experience. Because everything in the classroom is designed for children to use and enjoy, children look forward to coming to Godly Play and immerse themselves in the biblical story. Additionally, the children will prepare and share a "feast" during each session.
Middle School and High School students gather for games, fellowship, teaching, and lots of fun. We provide a safe space to discuss life struggles, joys, needs, influences, spiritual disciplines, identity, and more.

At Family Fun Nights, we offer an evening for the whole family to explore life and faith together. Families gather to eat, laugh, connect and grow! This event is meant to help families connect, have fun, and get to know one another. We are aware of busy schedules so cross making dinner off your list that night - we offer pizza and salad to make it easy to eat with your family & friends as we gather.
