We LOVE our kids! At Kids Trek, kids are encouraged to grow in their relationship with God through interactive services, time with invested adults, and intentional activities to reinforce the truth of the gospel. Age-appropriate classes take place during each Sunday service, unless otherwise noted.

NURSERY (3 months–AGE 2)

The Nursery staff is committed to love babies and affirm parents in their important role in nurturing children. Each week we integrate music, play time, share Bible stories, and reinforce three basic truths: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever.


Preschoolers meet in The Clubhouse where the excitement is palpable! Through hands-on interactive crafts, worship and creative storytelling, kids will know what it is to come to a lasting and vibrant faith in Christ. These little ones will learn three basic Bible truths: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever. Check it out! You'll wish you were age 3 again. Parents, Follow Us On Facebook For Updates.


Before kids leave the 5th grade, we want them to understand three basic truths: FAITH I can trust God no matter what. WISDOM I need to make the wise choice. FRIENDSHIP I should treat others the way I want to be treated. Kids are invited to learn these important truths in a fun, interactive environment. They'll 'plug in' with small group activities that help them focus, then they'll 'power up' in a dynamic service setting with games, songs, and a Bible story, and they'll 'catch on' with more intentional small group time to reinforce the lesson. Parents, Follow Us On Facebook For Updates.


Sunday during the 10:00 AM service in Room 103.

The focus of this program is helping students to know Jesus through love, prayer, and worship on an individual basis. We encourage students to be all God created them to be, and we accept and love them as they are. Depending upon their needs, students will be escorted to Kids Trek Large Group, Alive Youth or remain in the class for one-on-one connection.
