We believe every child has a purpose and is a minister of the gospel in their own way.  It is our desire to present the message of Christ in a way that will encourage the faith of our children and build them up spiritually, emotionally and physically. We use cutting edge educational techniques and interactive curriculum to establish Godly principles in the lives of the children we serve.  

Newborn - 2 yrs

We know that leaving your new baby or toddler can be a difficult transition. That's why we seek to provide the safest and most welcoming place we can for your child. All children's workers are screened and approved so you can be sure your child is in safe and caring hands.


3yrs - 5yrs

There is no more critical a time to begin building a foundation of faith than with our pre-schoolers. During class, kids will complete a craft or project, play games, worship, and learn interactively with one another. Our teachers work to model a firm foundation of a child's growing faith in God.


Kindergarten - 5th Grade

We count it a blessing to be a part of your child's life during this exciting time of growth. Our desire is to come alongside parents and guardians to build a foundation of faith. Kids in kindergarten through 6th grade can expect a fun-filled, high-energy experience in STAND Kids services as we seek the Lord together through games, worship, and interactive lessons that show the children how to begin to serve Him, right now, even when they are young.


To support our children as they grow from one level of learning to the next, we recognize there may be special circumstances that exist for a child such as school difficulties, cognitive or social issues, traumatic injuries, and other such issues. In an effort to assist our children and teens and ensure they are supported, we adhere to the following standard of practice: 

1.  Without intervening issue, children generally transition with their school grade level.

2.  When issues exist in the school setting, such as being retained in a grade, the Children's or Youth Pastor will meet with the parent or guardian to determine the best placement for the child/youth.

3.  When medically influenced issues such as cognitive delay or mental health issues exist, the Children's or Youth Pastor will meet with the parent or guardian to discuss the child/youth's needs and determine the best plan for supporting the child/youth in spiritual and social growth. Our ministry team will work to accommodate situations as we are prayerfully able.
