Children's Ministries

@ Sandy Plains

Welcome! Our goal is to help our children become true followers of Jesus Christ by: building relationships with them, being examples for them, and teaching them from the Bible.  

kids love it here @...ways to connect

1.) Children's Church Worship. Kids Worship is available at 10:30 am Sundays. You'll find this check in on the 2nd Floor of the education building. This is available each week a month, except the last Sunday a month, when kids join with "big church." Of course, kids are welcome any week in main worship services too. We've got you covered either way. At the 10:30 am Children's Church Worship, veteran background teachers will help kids...

  • Encourage kids in their faith in Jesus from the Bible.
  • Talk about the Christian faith together in discussion and ideas.
  • Meet new friends and catch up.
