Children's Ministry

Welcome!  We are not just a Children's Ministry we are a Family Ministry!  

Training up a child in the Lord is not something we take lightly.  Realizing that we impact your child(ren) for a small part of their week, we want to support you as parents who impact the lives of their children deeply.  We do that through solid Biblical Teaching, Ministry opportunities, & Family Fun Events!


Vision:  TRAIN up a child to a deeper relationship in Christ!

Mission: We exist to partner with parents as we Teach, Raise up, Accept, Invest, & Nurture a child!


  • New Hope Station (Nursery & PReschool)

    Train Stations and train rides can be amazing adventures as a child.  At New Hope Station, you will find yourself on such an adventure.


    As you arrive at the New Hope Station ticket booth you will be greeted by our ticket staff.  Using the keyboard & touch screen you will check-in.  A name tag ticket will be printed for your train ride and a tag for parents to pick you up after class.


    After you get your ticket, you will walk through the station that will lead you to one of the trains (hallways). All trains run during both services:  9am & 10:30am.


    Current Station Stops:
    Central Zoo (Nursery)
    In our nursery, newborns & toddlers are gently cared for by adult & youth volunteers in a clean, quality environment, while parents attend connect groups & worship.


    Central Park (Preschool)

    Preschool children discover biblical truths through songs, stories, hands on activities, and play.  Every lesson teaches your child about Jesus love and how to live for him everyday.

  • 2019 Parental Consent Form

    Throughout the year, we have trips to camp, conferences, activities, etc.  Each year, we ask that parents/guardians fill out a consent form that covers any of those events for the year.  Just FYI ... There are some events sponsored by another organization that do require a separate permission form.  Click here to fill out form online or forms may be picked up at any Check-in station.

  • Children's Christmas MUsical

    December 16th @ 6pm

    Things kick off in the "sleepy" little village of Bethlehem.  But in this tiny town something huge and miraculous is about to happen...the birth of the Messiah!  Right in the midst of all the action is an irresistibly group of orphans who reside at the inn of Bethlehem.  Meet Starr, Zoolie, John Luke, Gertie, Magnus, and Blake (oh, and shepherds Zeke and Ziggy!).  Along with Trixie, who runs the inn, this loveable group of kids and animals will put a smile on your lips and a song in your heart as they unveil the story of Christmas and how God sent His only Son to be born, STRAIGHT OUTTA BETHLEHEM.  As eyewitnesses to the holy, blessed event, their special retelling of the story is sure to shine a bright new light on the Savior's birth!
