Preschool & Children
Preschool LifeGroups are for children six weeks - pre-kindergarten. Children at any age can begin learning about Jesus' love -- it may be by hearing a story from the bible or meeting the needs of a hungry child. Preschool classes meet in the Hope Building.
Kindergarten and First Grade Ministry • First Floor of Education Building
Our K-5 program is designed as a transition to the elementary years. Beside learning through Bible stories who our God is, K-5 and First graders will begin to learn basic Bible skills such as the Books of the Bible. These children are very inquisitive, so we provide them with many opportunities to explore, create, and participate in each Bible lesson.
The Fortress (Grades 2nd - 4th) • Third Floor of Education Building
The Fortress is a multi-dimensional LifeGroup that is designed to teach children God's truth through a variety of learning styles. Can you imagine learning about the truths of God's Word while cooking in Christ Cafe' or playing with a computer program in Bible Bytes? Can you imagine stepping back into time and learning lessons from the Bible taught by a Bible hero like Peter in the Teaching Tabernacle or re-enacting the story yourself in the Praise Playhouse? It is an exciting way for your children to learn, grow and experience the Word of God. Come and check it out!
Preteen/Fifth Grade Ministry • Second Floor of Education Building
Fifth grade is an important transition year for students. This ministry is designed to give them the transition that they need from our elementary department to the Student Ministry. They will discuss issues that are relevant to pre-teens and will look to God's Word for insight and direction. Through Bible study, fellowship, activities and special service projects, they will grow in confidence and gain the spiritual insight they need to build a strong foundation for their teen years.
At 10:30am during the main worship service in Abba's House, we have services geared just for children.
For our youngest Abba's Kids, we offer Worship Care for ages 6 weeks - 4 years. Children 6 weeks - young two's are cared for in the Abba's House Nursery just steps from the main auditorium. Older preschoolers meet in the Hope Building.
Glory Train Junction is a place where kids can be kids while learning exciting things about God and worshiping Him. Join us each week for an unforgettable time of worship, Bible study, and lots of fun! Come get on board each Sunday in the Education Building, 1st floor. Passengers must be in K5 and 1st grade. Children must be signed out and picked up within 15 minutes of the dismissal of the main worship service by an adult.
Power House is our worship service for 2nd-4th graders. Our goals are to:
• Experience the heart of the heavenly father in worship
• Empower children by showing them their identity as son & daughters of God
• Equip them with the knowledge they need so they can . . .
• Extend Abba's love to the ends of the earth.
Power House meets in E-210 on the 2nd floor of the Education Building. Children must be signed out and picked up within 15 minutes of the dismissal of the main worship service by an adult.
5th graders go into the main service in Abba's House with their parents.
On certain dates throughout the year, we have Family Worship Sundays where our Children's Services do not meet and families can worship together in the main service in the Abba's House auditorium.
On Wednesday nights, kids get fun lessons on experiencing what God has for them and musical training in age-grade choirs. Check out the full Wednesday night schedule.
