Childrens Ministries

We accept, love and challenge children with God's truth.

We help any willing child reach his or her fullest potential to become radically Christ-like.

Everything we do in Kid City is centered around this purpose.  We provide purposeful spiritual growth opportunities, family-focused events, and community building experiences for all ages.  Our desire is to partner with parents to help raise up Christ followers.  We invite you to stop by the Kid City welcome desk for classroom placement and opportunities to serve.
