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


Just drop your infant or toddler off in our fun and colorful Nursery environment on the first floor and then enjoy the worship service!

The Preschool Room is all about the word TRUST. Our unique and creative programming consistently points children in grades Pre-K through kindergarten 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

Just drop your child off at in the Preschool Room upstairs, where they will experience a fun time of singing and Bible storytelling.  Our Amplify Kids love coming to church!

The Elementary Room is where our 1st – 6th 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 as well as small group connection with an adult leader and other children their age.
