Kid’s Ministry

First Communion will take place on Thursday, April 6th at 7:00 PM for children who are in fourth grade or older.  In order to ensure that your kids are spiritually prepared for this important step in their faith walk, there are a couple of things you will need to do:

  1. Print and fill out a registration form. It needs to be turned into Cyndy Nelson by Sunday, March 19th.
  2. Print and Complete the First Communion Exploration Activities Guide with your child and turn the finished copy into Cyndy Nelson by Sunday, March 19th. The Guide will take approximately 4-5 hours total to complete.  There is a lot of information to cover, so it is recommended to work together over 3-4 different days/sessions.
  3. Attend the Parent/Child First Communion Class on Sunday, March 26th, 3-5:00 PM.  The First Communion Class will be taught by Sean Nelson, Pastor of Youth, Family, and Discipleship.

Raise your hand if… You have kids…You have grandkids…You know a kid…You WERE a kid.
If you said yes to any of these…READ ON!

All of us are created for community, and that includes our children as well.  So…Bring your kids to church, where they will learn about God’s love for them and build lifelong friendships!

While you attend grown-up service, kids will have a service just for them!

  • Where they will learn how to Worship God, through songs and actions.
  • Fun age-appropriate, Bible-rich instruction that your kids will remember.
  • Kids are in small groups with kids their own age:  Nursery, Preschool, K-3rd and Preteen (4th-5th) graders
  • You can connect with other Parents each Sunday and at special events.
  • Weekly tools to help parents grow in their faith, and help for the family.

Preschoolers love trying to do things like grown-ups. They like to press buttons on computers and jump high to throw the basketball or stir the food to make something yummy to eat. Being able to say they can do things like Mommy or Daddy is a big deal! This month, we are teaching preschoolers something else they can do that’s a really big deal. They can love like Jesus! We want preschoolers to know that they can love like Jesus, and when they love like Jesus, it’s like  tossing confetti everywhere! Serving others, showing kindness, helping and loving everyone—these are things that even our youngest children can do. And when they do, they love like Jesus.

1, 2, 3… it’s Easter! And we are SO excited to share with our youngest friends that Jesus is alive! We want our preschoolers to know that Jesus isn’t just a character in stories. Jesus is alive, and He wants to be their friend forever! This month, we are sharing the most important event in history with our preschoolers. Jesus changed the world, and He still has the power to change people’s lives today. Why? Because Jesus is alive!

No matter how much we mess up, God will always forgive us. Jesus even chose to forgive those who were crucifying Him. Because God forgives us, we should work hard to forgive others. We can decide that someone who has wronged us doesn’t have to pay. With God’s help, we can free ourselves from the weight of anger and bitterness, while giving the other person an opportunity to rewrite the story.

We live in a “me-centered” world, where people act as if the world revolves around them. It can be hard to figure out how to be humble throughout the different circumstances we face. Thankfully, we don’t have to figure this out on our own. When Jesus was on earth, He gave us the ultimate example of humility. Jesus is God, and He put that aside for us. Through His life and death, Jesus also showed us how to serve others and put them first.
