It Takes a Village
Our Children’s Ministry Values
Humility: We serve one another, learn from each other, and seek to love as Christ loves us.
Faith: We courageously trust Jesus, believing He is at work in all that we do.
Love: We serve and care for others so they may discover the depths of God’s affection.
Safety: We foster a physically, emotionally, and spiritually safe space so every child can feel the freedom to be themselves.
Joy: We learn and practice joy, remembering our heavenly Father is always with us.
Sundays in The Village
Each Sunday morning, our children have a time of worship, teaching, sharing, learning, and praying in the presence of the Holy Spirit. The rhythm of the day is uniquely catered toward each age group.
Check-in opens at 8:45AM and 10:45AM, and closes 15 minutes into the main service.
Safety Is Our Top Priority
We ensure every child’s safety and security under our care through multiple security systems. All of our volunteers are cleared through background checks and given classroom safety training. Additionally, we have an easy check-in platform that you sign into each time you attend church. All parents/guardians are given a security sticker when checking their children into The Village and must present it upon picking up their child. No child will ever be released without the parent/guardian presenting the security sticker.
Volunteers Who Are Invested in Your Children
We call ourselves “The Village” because we believe that faith in Jesus becomes captivating for young people when they witness the passion of a wide variety of believers in community, empowered by the Holy Spirit to embody the Gospel. And while your child’s most significant relationship is with you at home, they have a better chance of understanding life-changing truths when multiple influences are all reinforcing the same thing. That’s why our volunteers are trained and equipped to share the love of Jesus and embody God’s delight in every child. Our volunteers are like shepherds and mentors for our kids, desiring to see each child grow in their love for Christ.
Family Room Available
During our services, you’ll find a family room just off the sanctuary next to the elevator [Room 200]. In this room, parents with younger children will find age-appropriate toys and a changing table. A video feed of the main service is also available.
