Kids

Genesis is for infants and toddlers is all about the word EMBRACE. Our dynamic preschool curriculum focuses on three truths that are so important for our littlest ones to learn from the very beginning!

GOD MADE ME
GOD LOVES ME
JESUS WANTS TO BE MY FRIEND FOREVER

Just drop your infant or toddler off in our amazing Genesis environment on the first floor of our Children’s Wing and then enjoy the worship service!

Upstreet is all about the word TRUST. Our unique and creative programming consistently points children in grades Pre-K through 1st grade to a life of trust in Jesus Christ. Each week your child will embark on an adventure while learning about one “Big Idea” per month. Each Big Idea revolves around one of the three main themes:

FAITH – I can trust God no matter what
WISDOM – I need to make the wise choice
FRIENDSHIP – I need to treat others the way I want to be treated

Drop your child off at one of our fun and creative “Upstreet” environments, like the Toy Store or the Candy Store, where they will check in before heading over to the awesome Clubhouse Theater for a time of singing and Bible storytelling.  Our Amplify Kids love coming to church!

This newly renovated space on the 3rd floor of our Children’s Wing is where our 2nd – 5th graders come to learn these 3 core virtues:

FAITH – I can trust God no matter what
WISDOM – I need to make the wise choice
FRIENDSHIP – I should treat others the way I want to be treated

Learning centers around large group singing and creative Bible story telling in our exciting Theater space as well as small group connection with an adult leader and other children their age in our bright and spacious new small group rooms.

J-High is all about creating a community where 6th-8th graders can find a sense of belonging and purpose in Jesus Christ. Through worship, teaching, playing, and serving together, we become the next generation of world-changers. And while it may look messy, loud, or even a little crazy at times, everything we do is designed to grow our students in their faith through life-changing relationships in Christ!

KidzSTUF! reflects our commitment to partner with parents in the spiritual development of their children.  Elementary age kids and their parents head over to The Theater right after church on the second weekend of each month for KidzSTUF!  During this 25-minute, fast paced multimedia production, the zany cast of KidzSTUF! characters entertain and inspire as they creatively present the “Big Idea” of the month.  Knowing each month’s Big Idea empowers parents to be more actively involved in reinforcing what their child is learning. There’s nothing like KidzSTUF! and it happens only once a month – don’t miss it!

Our special needs kids learn the same concepts as their peers all month long! Each child will be given a buddy to stick with them within their environment as determined by collaboration between the parent and teacher. From birth through high school, we’ll do our best to accommodate any needs your little one might have. If it’s your child’s first time, just let any of our Welcome Team members know and they can direct you.

Youth

Amplify Youth is for students in grades 9-12 and meets from 7-8:30 PM on Thursday nights in The Theater for a full worship experience. Students will engage in a welcoming community, passionate worship, life-transforming preaching and practical small groups. These elements come together to help create a dynamic environment for high school students to grow their relationship with Jesus.
