We have options for ages infant - 5th grade at our 10:30am service. Children are welcome to attend the service with their parents, or they are welcome to attend a class geared toward their age group. If children decide to attend service with their parents, we do have activity binders available, just ask a volunteer and they will direct you where you can find them.
We love kids, and want them and you to feel welcome! Safety is a top priority for us, so we have a check-in station located in front of the classrooms that we use for nursery and children's ministry. We also background check each of our volunteers.
What is your age/classroom breakdown? We currently have a room available for parents to use with their infants if they needed, a preschool class which is for ages 2-4/5, and an elementary class which is for grades K-5. We have teachers in each room to help teach the lesson in an age-appropriate manner.
Where do I take my kids? You can check them in by the classrooms in the lobby. You can't miss them- just walk in our front door and you'll see our check-in off to the right. Our check-in system helps keep your kids safe- we get all important information from you like allergies or sensitivities. Want to per-register your child into our check in system? Contact us and we will help you through the process.
What do my kids learn? We use Grow Curriculum, where we cover every major Bible story over a three year period, then we start over. We spend time both in the Old Testament and the New Testament. In this curriculum, we teach the Old Testament chronologically over that three year time period and the New Testament chronologically each year (covering different pieces of the New Testament each year). Long story short- we are very intentional about teaching your kid the Bible and we make sue that we cover it all. Be sure to get on our parent email list (contact Pastor Jake firstname.lastname@example.org to get on this list), as we send out each month's topic and provide resources for you to continue conversations at home.

Hey Parents- head to our Facebook page to see things like our memory verse of the week.
Why are there so many Christmas songs about angels? Because angels show up all throughout the Christmas story with great news! In this four-week series, kids will explore the foundational stories of Jesus’ birth with a focus on the angels who were there to witness them! From the city where Jesus was born, to the cities we live in today, the angels’ message is just as important now as it was then! Jesus is God’s plan, calms our fears, makes everything new, and is God’s love for everyone.
Didn't make it this past week, but your kiddo still wants to watch Cali's World to hear the Bible story? You can download the PDF below and click on the week you missed.
You can also contact Pastor Jake and he can send you some coloring sheets and family discussion guides to cover that week.
