We love kids at Connect Church! The Bible states that, “He [Jesus] said to them, ‘Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children”. (Mark 10:14) Our goal is to partner with parents in laying a foundation for children to honor, love and serve our Lord Jesus Christ for a lifetime.
Serving children 6 weeks through 6th grade, our age-appropriate classrooms offer a safe and nurturing environment. Children worship together, sharing the truths of God’s Word in a fun and meaningful way through music, Bible stories, activities and prayer. We encourage families to take the opportunity and continue the conversation and learning at home throughout the week.
All volunteers complete a background check and participate in on-going training, ensuring that a loving and equipped teacher leads each class. For added security, our preschool area locks 15 minutes into each service and requires a member of our team to enter. All children must check in before attending class, further ensuring the safety of our precious little ones.
The Connect Preschool classrooms are open for both the 9:00am Discipleship Hour and 10:30am Worship service.
The Connect Kids' Ministry meets at 9:00am for Bible study and small groups. Our preteen class of 4th & 6th graders also meets at 9:00am. We encourage families with children in Kindergarten through 6th grade to worship together at 10:30. After worship, Kindergarten through 3rd graders are invited to move into the Kids' Ministry for a biblically-based message taught in an age appropriate and impactful style. 4th - 6th graders remain in the service for the message.
We strive to teach and model our church’s mission to our children by “Making disciples of Jesus Christ who love God, Love People, and Impact the World”.
