Childcare is provided for children up to age 3 during all worship services. The goal of the nursery ministry is to provide safe, secure, nurturing, clean and efficient care for all children, whether they are a one-time guest, visitor, or regular attender.
Children are registered through our touchpoint sign in system and includes basic contact information as well as allergies and special instructions.
The nursery is “staffed” by a large group of volunteers consisting of parents, grandparents, church members and teens. All adult volunteers are screened and trained according to our “Safe Church” policy.
“Let your roots grow down into Jesus Christ, and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” ~ Col 2:7 (NLT)
Each Sunday, following the children’s message, children age welcomed to continue their worship in Faithwalk. The children depart together to the fellowship hall for a time of singing. The preschool and kindergarten children remain in the fellowship hall and the grade 1-3 children go with their teacher to the youth room for their lesson.
Compel! for students grades 4-6 takes place following the sermon. Each week the Compel! students pick up a Compel! Discussion guide from the welcome desk prior to the service. The Discussion guide includes questions to guide their listening during the sermon. The Compel! class then discusses student responses to the questions and the sermon. Compel! gives this age group an opportunity to ask questions, read scripture, relate the message to their own lives and pray together in a small group setting.
Faith Walk is led by a large group of volunteers consisting of parents, grandparents, church members and teens. All adult volunteers are screened and trained according to our “Safe Church” policy.
It is our prayer that all children will come to know that they have a special place and purpose in God’s great story, and that God loves them very much. Come and join us, we always enjoy welcoming new friends!

*The Cadets (Calvinist Cadet Corps) is an independent (non-denominational) youth ministry organization whose purpose is to provide the local church with ministry programs that will enable them to effectively share Christ’s love with boys from their church and community. Founded in 1952, the Corps has more than 600 clubs throughout North America, a brother organization in Australia and New Zealand, and since 2006 has been working in Kenya and Uganda.
