Welcome to Kids Way

When it comes to children’s ministry, we know that kids thrive when they are given age-specific programs that are both fun and educational. Kids Way is a safe and fun place where kids love to come, week after week, and learn about Jesus and God’s amazing plan for their life. Our desire is to connect with each child in a way that they will see Jesus through our genuine love and care, and be radically changed for God.

Weekends

Nursery

Infants-36 Months

We believe in ministering to the needs of every age group, including our smallest children. While parents participate in the adult services, they can rest assured that their babies are receiving the right attention and personal care in a safe and nurturing environment.

Preschool

3-5 Years

Preschoolers love to learn, which is why each preschool classroom provides interactive learning experiences in a colorful and engaging atmosphere. From illustrated Bible lessons to comical puppet skits, preschoolers learn God’s Word in bite-size bits.

Elementary

K-5 Grade

Combining high-energy activities with Bible-based teachings, the gospel is presented through a combination of games, characters and interactive songs that captivate kids’ attention while also showing them that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life!
