There are no ordinary kids!

Our passion, quite simply, is you and your kids!

We believe that God has amazing plans for your kids, not just when they grow up, but right now! That’s why we believe every kid has a future worth fighting for. When kids see God for who He is, they’ll trust what He says about who they are. Our desire is to work alongside our parents to connect kids to Jesus as they discover God’s world in a safe, friendly and fun environment. We want to SHOW kids how amazing it is to follow Jesus, not just tell them they should. We want children to KNOW God, not just know about church, and we want our kids to have VALUES to guide them, not just schedules that will control them.​

We believe that teaching children to count is fine, but teaching them what counts is best. That’s why we consider it an honor and a privilege to be a positive, encouraging voice in your child’s life. There’s too much at stake to leave their future to chance because we believe there are no ordinary kids!

The Four Principles that guide what we do and why:

Our Mission:

  • To come alongside families and assist them in fulfilling God’s calling to protect and guide their children.

  • To communicate the gospel from God’s Word in a relevant, age appropriate and meaningful way.

  • To provide a safe environment where children can explore, grow and build healthy relationships.


SEEDLINGS (0-preschool) Our goal is to help preschoolers take their first look at who God is and discover how much He loves them in a safe, loving environment. We use an age-appropriate curriculum called First Look that engages our little ones in fun activities centered on embracing these three basic truths:


  1. God made me.

  2. God loves me.

  3. God watches over me.


SPROUTS (1 – 3 grade) As children grow, their world expands exponentially and becomes incredibly confusing and sometime frightening. Our goal is to be a safe, loving place for kids to explore this big world and to equip them with a good map for the lifelong adventure of following Jesus. Modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52 (And Jesus increased in wisdom and in years, and in divine and human favor), we want to help our kids embrace these three basic truths before they graduate fifth grade and move into middle school:

  1. I need to make the wise choice.

  2. I can trust God no matter what.

  3. I should treat others the way I want to be treated.


SAPLINGS (4 – 5 grade) As children grow, setting roots is critical before the turbulent storms of adolescences. Kids needs the opportunity to be the Church while they’re with us, so they’ll still be the Church when they aren’t. Our goal is to instill in kids their value in the kingdom and the church and the world.


  1. God guides me.

  2. God uses me to love my family and friends.

  3. Jesus was Jesus all week long, not just on Sunday.
