Our KIDSLife programs are available for children 4 years old through the 5th grade on Sunday mornings following worship and Wednesday nights from 6-7:30.
The purpose of C3 is to be a Safe Place, a Grace Place, and a Faith Place. We fulfill this purpose in KIDSLife by committing to creating the following environment:
A Safe Place – God is bigger than our biggest questions. He wants us to wrestle with life’s problems together and find that He is with us through them all. All are accepted and free to grow and realize their potential in Christ.
A Grace Place – We all have sinned and fall short of God’s glory. (Rom. 3:23) Your sin is not worse than my sin; my sin is not worse than your sin. We are all recipients of God’s unmerited favor – His Grace – because of His love for us as evidenced by Jesus’ work on the Christ. Because of the forgiveness we have been shown by God, we freely forgive others.
A Faith Place – Without faith, it is impossible to please God. (Heb. 11:6) Life is hard but God is good. Finding God in the midst of both trials and victories takes a community of faith. Knowing why we believe solidifies our faith to face life’s storms. In this world you will have tribulation, but take heart I have overcome the world. (John 16:33).
Our Sunday morning program revolves around the Elevate and Elevate Jr. curriculum that employs creative, video-driven lessons as a springboard for a fun, interactive, age-appropriate learning experience. Kids will join their parents for corporate worship in the worship center, and will be dismissed to their classrooms prior to the message. Students can be picked up following the service.
Our Wednesday night programs exist to build up the community of believers and encourage one another as we put faith tools in our spiritual toolboxes to do life together. The KIDSLife programming upholds those same standards. KIDSLife exists to teach even the youngest believers to do life together by unpacking the mysteries of the Bible in words they can understand. Our kids will wrestle with real life applications based on what they’ve heard; this occurs by sharing struggles with one another and rejoicing together with victories. Perhaps the kids' favorite part is learning that we serve a God who loves us and wants us to enjoy an abundant life; this sometimes translates as ridiculous games, hands on art projects, leaders who wear ridiculous costumes, and themed based decorations and snacks.
