We believe that children are precious in God’s eyes and that it is a God-given privilege to bring joy and direction to their lives. We are living in a time when our children are faced with many difficult choices. It is our desire to help children build a solid foundation for life through loving support and spiritual guidance.

Kids’ Quest runs each Sunday morning during our contemporary gathering. Children are registered in the church foyer, prior to the gathering and dismissed from the sanctuary after the first few worship songs. The program begins with an open session where there is an opening activity and song. The group then breaks into two classes, according to age, which meet in their own areas. Here, they watch the Bible story via DVD and participate in activities, crafts, and memory verse activities that reinforce the Bible lesson and concepts of the day.
At ‘Kids’Quest’ we follow the excellent, Biblically-sound curriculum called “The Gospel Project” from Lifeway, which teaches children from the Bible, chronologically, showing them how Jesus relates to every part of it and to every part of their lives. We have a dedicated team of teachers and helpers that seek to meet your child’s needs for love, security, and attention to make their Kids’ Quest experience fun and memorable.
AWANA is a Bible based program designed specifically for children Age 5 to Grade 6. Our goal is to offer a fun program in a loving atmosphere where children can learn and grow in the Lord.
The club meets each Thursday Evening at 6:25 to 8:15 p.m. from September to April. The evening is divided into three main components:
- Handbook Time: Children work at their own pace to complete assignments in order to earn awards.
- Games: Children meet in the gym to play various games, such as relays, obstacle courses and other games that are unique to AWANA
- Council Time: Children gather for discussions, stories and practical Bible messages.
