Children's Ministry

All of our children's ministries fall under the "Creek Kidz" umbrella.  Our staff is eager to create an exciting, fun-filled atmosphere that your children enjoy; we can't wait to see you each week!


Our goal is to come alongside families in teaching children spiritual truths they will carry with them for a lifetime.  We partner with parents to begin laying a spiritual foundation through age-appropriate lessons and activities, not only for enjoyment, but for spiritual growth.


Parents can rest assured their little ones are being cared for and ministered to by loving staff members.  Our prayer is that they are loved enthusiastically and are encouraged to grow into spiritually strong and healthy individuals.  


Come join us for a wild ride down the pathway of life as Christ followers seeking to serve Him, kidz style!!

Nursery

And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee

wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. II Timothy 3:15


Our goal is to provide a safe and warm environment that will benefit the entire family during Sunday School and Worship Services. Each child is a unique gift from God, and we strongly advocate an atmosphere of loving, caring, and sharing. We recognize that parents and family are the most important influences in any child’s life, and we want to partner with you in reinforcing spiritual truths. We will model simple prayer, worship through music, and learning from the Bible.

When You Arrive

You may also elect to be contacted via cell phone if you will be somewhere other than the sanctuary.
