Children & Youth Ministry


We currently offer children's ministry for PreK and NovaKids (K-5th) during the Sunday service. 


More information will come about our Nursery ministry soon.

Nursery  (Newborn - Age 3)


  • More information coming soon.

PreK  (Age 3 - 4)


Check-In

  • Parents will begin checking children in upon arrival. (It's best to come a little early for check in.)
  • NovaKids volunteers will check-in students under a children's ministry tent just off the main walkway.
    If we don't already have it, we'll need your name and phone number as well as your child's name and grade level.
  • Bring your child over to Room 7 (East side of the North building, by the Prayer Garden).

Lesson Time

  • The children will remain with their teachers from before the service until pickup time right after the service.
  • The children will be taught a lesson and will be able to participate in some crafts.

Pick-Up

  • After the service, you can pick your child up from Room 7.

NovaKids  (K - 5th grade)


We look forward to the opportunity to teach your children about our great God and demonstrate His love for them. We also welcome any questions you may have. Thank you for your continued support and for giving our team the opportunity to speak truth into the life of your children. Of course, if you feel more comfortable keeping your children with you during the service, you are welcome to do so. 


Check-In

  • Parents will begin checking children in upon arrival. (It's best to come a little early for check in.)
  • NovaKids volunteers will check-in students under a children's ministry tent just off the main walkway.
    If we don't already have it, we'll need your name and phone number as well as your child's name and grade level.
  • We are asking that all parents make sure their children have used the restroom prior to the start of the service in order to minimize the need for restroom usage during lesson time.

Meeting Teachers

  • Children will stay with their parents during the worship set and will be dismissed after the pastoral prayer to meet their NovaKids leaders. 
  • NovaKids leaders will walk the children to their outdoor meeting location in the North parking lot. 
  • The area where the children are meeting will be blocked from any potential car traffic by volunteer vehicles. This area will likely be in full sun for the majority of our meetings. We ask you to plan accordingly by applying sunscreen and considering sending your child with a hat.

Lesson Time

  • Leaders will split children into two groups, by age, and tell each child where to sit. Each child will have a prepackaged bag of supplies, including a pencil and workbook that leaders will distribute. One leader will teach each group. We expect that each group will have between 6 and 12 children.
  • Children's Ministry leaders have evaluated and purchased a small group bible study curriculum which NovaKids leaders will use to teach a brief bible lesson and then guide students through accompanying activities. 
  • If your child has a personal bible that they could bring to our lesson times, that would be excellent. 
  • We expect lessons to last the duration of the sermon (about 25 minutes). 

Pick-Up

  • Upon the conclusion of the service parents will proceed up the sidewalk and pick their children up. Parents will be directed to stay on the sidewalk by the Nursery and Youth Room and children will be called from their seats once their parents have arrived. 
  • As students go to meet their parents, they will drop their labeled supply bag into a box for use next week.
