Your First Visit

If you are a guest, you’ll want to stop by our guest check-in on our lobby level first to get signed in. From there, head up the stairs to our mezzanine level where you’ll be greeted by friendly faces ready to show you and your child around!

The safety of our kids is very important to us so be sure to review our Safety Policy.

Weekend Services


During the service, your child will enjoy a large group service with great worship and a thought provoking lesson. Then they will enjoy a small group time where they will connect with other children their age and dive deeper into the lesson with one of our amazing small group leaders. Afterwards, the children have time to hang out, play video games, use our special Orange Bucks to get snacks from our Snack Shack, and just have fun!

For security purposes, all children in FirstKids Elementary, no matter their age, must be picked up from the FirstKids area by an adult or approved family member with the security tag.

Wednesday Night Equip

(offered during Wednesday Night Equip in the fall & spring)
During Wednesday Night Equip, your kids will get to dive deeper into our weekend lessons, exploring the Bible through music, drama, and art. Each week, the children will spend time in each of those areas, learning what the Bible says about them and how they relate to the evening’s lesson.

Special Events

In addition to our power-packed schedule, we also do special events from time to time. These things include:

BAPTISM CELEBRATIONS (offered twice yearly, fall and spring)
Family-friendly baptismal services are offered twice a year. These services are specifically centered on kids and are great celebratory events. Families have the option of baptism as part of the weekend worship services as well.

SuperStart! is a pre-teen conference sponsored by Christ in Youth (CIY). Fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students and parents are invited to attend this yearly event presented at another church out of town. It is a great experience for kids (& adults!).
