Spark Kids - Children's Ministry

 

Upcoming Events:

Fall Kickoff - September 11th

Save the Date:  Stellar Vacation Bible School 2023 - August 7-11, 2023

Our Spark Kidz program for children age 2 through 5th grade begins at 10 AM each Sunday (September through June) in the Sanctuary, where children attend the first 15 minutes of the service with their family and then are dismissed for their individual classes following the children's sermon.

During Spark Kidz, children and leaders explore the Bible through exciting hands-on multi-sensory lessons from the God Loves Me (2&3yr olds) and Buzz curriculum (PreK-5th grade).

Parents can pick up their children in their classrooms following the conclusion of our 10 AM Celebration service.

If you're looking for a place to help plant the seeds of faith in your child, come to Spark Kidz on Sunday mornings.  Visitors are always welcome!
