Each Sunday, we offer exciting times of learning for both preschoolers and primary grade students that emphasize both small group and large group settings. Our commitment is to offer a safe, caring and fun environment where each child's needs are met, giving each child an opportunity to learn about Jesus Christ in ways that are developmentally and age appropriate.
We believe children are a gift from God and should be handled with love and care. They are important in the Kingdom of God. (Psalm 127:3; Matthew 19:14 )
We believe children can respond in faith to Jesus Christ because Christ died to redeem them from their sin. (Psalm 22:9b; 2 Tim 3:14-15 )
We believe the church’s role is to come alongside parents and support them in the spiritual training of their children. (Deuteronomy 6:6-9; Ephesians 4:12 )
We believe children deserve a safe, positive, nurturing and age-appropriate learning environment - free of fear, pressure, and prejudice. (Matthew 18:1-6 )
We believe children need to be taught and shown how to live a balanced Christian life. Positive role models are imperative. (Luke 2:52; James 3:10-12 )
We believe ministry is not just “to” children but “with” children. We learn from children as we teach them. (Matthew 21:16 )
In Fish, we believe it is important to teach the Scriptures to young children. Every year we teach systematically through a Testament of the Bible. Every week your child will have games, stories, crafts, imaginative play and a snack that will all correspond to the Bible lesson that day. Also, we like to party! Every year we have a birthday party for Jesus and we celebrate his resurrection with a big class party as well. Each teacher in preschool ministry is background checked. We hope that your preschooler can join us for a fantastic learning experience in Fish!
Our nursery ministry consist of very loving adults who take extra special care of your children so parents can go to our main service. Your children will be sung to, played with, fed a snack (if permitted), read to, changed, and most importantly, prayed for. It is our desire to shower these precious gifts from God in love and prayer. All of our nursery volunteers are background checked and approved. Fish nursery is a great environment for your children to be cared for each week.
Amplify meets during the service on Sunday. Each Sunday we offer exciting times of learning for primary students that emphasize small group bible study and large group worship and games. The Amplify Team consists of many individuals who are passionate about Christ and passionate about kids. We find great delight in celebrating the uniqueness of each child and serving them through the Sunday morning experience. We are partners with you, the primary caretaker and spiritual leader. Our commitment is to come alongside you, the parent, as you spiritually nurture your child. We would never want to steal that joy from you. We seek to teach children the scriptures and show them how to insert them directly into their lives. We want to help them listen to the Holy Spirit as he speaks truth to them and we want to help you introduce them to a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Seeds is a time for our 4th/5th graders to come together to worship and learn more about God. It is our desire to see our 4th/5th graders go deeper into the scriptures and prepare them for their teenage years. The pre-teen age is a very critical time and is becoming increasingly difficult in this day and age. We want to walk beside your pre-teen during this time and help show them how God has called them to live.
Seeds takes place at the same time as our Journey Classes do. Please bring your child and enjoy going deeper into the scriptures with one of our other classes.
