Children's Ministry

The Grow Zone

"As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth:  It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire  and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands." Isaiah 55:10-12


The Grow Zone is where we learn to grow in Christ through the planning, preparation, planting, tending, harvesting, and resting of nature's life cycle. There is so much knowledge and wisdom to glean from what God has created - we are without excuse. So let's get to learning about life in Christ!


The Grow Zone

Learning to live, and breathe, and have our being in Christ. 

SEEDLINGS

0-3 Years

The early stages of formation as a Christian, human, or any organism is the most vital for healthy development. We take our role as parents and teachers  very seriously and we fight for our children's viability in a rocky world. We want to make sure our little ones get the best nutrition from their surroundings. The Nursery is a safe place for our "Seedlings" to take root and first steps as we walk alongside them. 

SPROUTS

4-6 Years

They're off and running. These children are out to a great start and are growing like crazy! Budding brains and absorbent learners, it's time to get our hands in the soil. The Garden is the place where "Sprouts" will learn Scripture, spiritual disciplines, and emotional health. They will learn to love God with their whole heart, soul, and strength. The Garden is a space created for children to soak up knowledge and wisdom and grow responsibly in Christ. 

SAPLINGS

7-9 Years

We've made it this far. We're not giving up now. These interesting characters are figuring out who they are. Individuality is shining through as they become more and more independent. But with independence, comes responsibility. The Greenhouse is an activity filled, high energy space for growing and testing boundaries, while learning about the limits in life that nurture our development and growth. The Greenhouse is designed to keep children engaged and curious about life in Christ. 

SHOOTS

10-12 years

How do they grow so fast?! Weren't these guys just Seedlings in the Nursery? Life's questions are getting harder. Peer pressure from friends is more prevalent. The Grove is a place where these pre-teens can learn to slow down and spend time with God. They will learn valuable skills about relying on God, his comfort, reassurance, and direction for their lives. They will learn to engage with their faith as growing believers and to tackle some of the difficulties and mysteries of the faith. They will learn to send down roots and drink deeply from the well of eternal life. The Grove is a place of peace, growth, and rest amidst the ever-increasing pace of life.
