Spark Kids - Children's Ministry

Special Note:  Our classes are preparing to reopen on Sunday, October 4th.  Class size will be limited to 6 and additional safety and sanitizing measures have been put in place.  Online registration will be required each week.  Hope to see everyone soon.  

Scroll down for at home family activities and don't miss our kids grab & go packets at our outdoor worship service this summer. 

Our Rocky Railway VBS has been postponed until August 2021.  We hope to see everyone at our train station then.  Check back for future updates.

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!
