To provide an age appropriate environment where children ages 0 – 12 can learn the foundational truths about God and how they fit into His plan on earth. We seek to work with parents to nurture their child’s faith so that the influences of the Church and Home can have greater, lasting impact. We understand that we are developing the next generation of leaders and will leverage every opportunity to engage, excite, enlighten and empower them for Kingdom service and success.
God has placed gifts and talents within me to help me do my best.
I was created to honour God and fulfil His plan for my life.
God has given me wisdom so that I can influence and inspire others positively.
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
2 Timothy 3:14-17
But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.
FIREFLIES (Ages 0 – 4) Our Nursery and Kinder-church classes are focused on introducing our little ones to God through songs, prayers and confessions.
KINDLE (Ages 5 – 8) is focused on Inciting Wonder as we discuss God’s Original Plan and make a first offer of salvation.
Next, we Ignite their passion for God through an introduction to the Holy Spirit and Praise & Worship.
