This ministry is led by our Early Childhood Director, Mandi LeJeune.The age group we minister to is Nursery – Pre-K. When the children reach toddler age, we begin reading Bible stories to them, teaching them songs and helping them make crafts they can bring home. We also begin teaching age appropriate lesson material. It’s here that we begin teaching them that Jesus is a loving friend.

While all of our church ministries are important, this one is especially vital for our young families and visitors. In order for young mothers and fathers to be able to participate fully in the life of our church and the classes we offer, they need to feel assured that their children are receiving competent loving care.

This ministry takes place from 9:00-10:15 and from 11:00-12:15 on Sunday mornings and 6:30-8:00 on Wednesday evenings.

KCNN (Kid Community News Network) is a Sunday morning worship service, Kid Style. We use a team of leaders to produce a Children’s Church. Each service consists of a Bible lesson, singing, offering, prayer time, and games and activities in which the kids can participate.


During our time together the kids can participate at whatever level in which they feel comfortable; if they want to watch they can watch, if the want to sing with microphones they can sing with microphones. We also let them participate in activities and games. Each week, we teach a meaningful lesson, something that the kids can really hold on to and remember, and something that can be life changing. They will experience the truths of scripture and biblical principles such as tithing, prayer and worship.

KCNN is for children from K-6th grade.

Scheduled time is at 9:00 and 11:00 during adult worship times on Sunday mornings.

After a long day at school, we want our kids to look forward to coming to church.

Typically when we meet we will read a little bit of the Bible and then talk about what it means;Why it was written, to whom it was written, what normal life was like in those days, what it means for the us today and how we should live, ...at school, at home and in our neighborhoods.We also use drama as we allow the kids to practice and perform short skits for each other.We’ll also use this time for the kids to participate in various crafts and active games. Each and every time we meet, our goal is to be good examples for the kids we teach, to model the Christian life to give them a pattern to follow.

The kids are divided into two classes: 1st-3rd and 4th-6th. The meeting time is 6:30-8:30 on Wednesday evenings.

First Serve Opportunities
