As parents, our highest priority is to raise our children to love the Lord as their Savior. Through our daily personal walk and through our interactions with our community of faith children learn what it looks like to rely on God.
Our goal is to partner with parents by offering spiritual guidance, Bible-based teachings in a safe, secure age-appropriate environment where every child feels loved. Your children will learn how the stories of the Bible apply to their lives and build friendships that will last.
Join us on Sundays!
Our Children’s Ministry has Sunday School, nursery, and childcare ministries in the children and youth building at our Fairpoint Campus.
Sunday School starts at 9:30 for children k-5th, and childcare is available at 9:30 and 11:00 for younger children.
Child-friendly activities are available for children who attend our Worship at the Water™ campus.
This year the children will be studying the whole Bible in one year!
Digging into the Bible in one year takes kids on a whirlwind journey from Genesis to Revelation. Kids experience a relationship with God through the eyes of ordinary Bible people.
Kids will discover that they are a lot like people God has always loved and worked through. Your children will learn how the stories of the Bible apply to their lives and build friendships that will last.
This class is available for children who attend both our Fairpoint Campus or Worship at the Water™ Campus.
