We believe that even at a very young age children have the potential to begin understanding basic concepts about God. Through Bible-based stories, lessons are planned so that children can learn:

  • God made me
  • God loves me
  • Jesus wants to be my friend forever



Birth – 26 Months

The nursery exists to provide a safe and loving atmosphere where simple Bible truths are modeled and taught. Planting eternal seeds from the very beginning is important to us. We desire to partner with parents and help them feel confident in knowing we are on this journey with them.



3-5 Year Olds

Our desire in preschool is to instill biblical concepts through age-specific learning. Classroom time is broken down by age and consists of activities and crafts that reinforce the biblical truths taught during large group. Children also engage in age-appropriate worship.


We believe the Bible is alive, exciting, and should never be boring; good leaders always care; and worship can be fun. Before kids head off to middle school, we want to make sure these 3 Basic Truths stick:

3 Basic Truths
“And Jesus grew in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and Man.” – Luke 2:52

  • I need to make the WISE choice.
  • I can TRUST GOD no matter what.
  • I should TREAT OTHERS the way I want to be treated.



Large group time includes interactive worship, the teaching of God’s truths, and exploring the influence these truths have on their choices and actions. Kindergartners use the small group setting to put these truths into practice by participating in appropriate games and activities.

1st & 2nd Grades

Children participate in grade-level groups with instruction and activities conducted in large and small group settings. An emphasis is placed on children building relationships that will facilitate spiritual growth. Exciting worship, group games, and dynamic presentations characterize this weekly experience.

3rd & 4th Grades

Children participate in grade-level groups with instruction and activities conducted in large and small group settings. To build godly character, children participate in activities that help them learn to apply biblical truths to their everyday lives, as well as engage in dynamic praise and worship.

Worship at kid::life


We were all created to worship God. We don’t have to wait to become a Christian adult to be a worshiper. We offer multiple worship areas for age groups with diverse elements, including prayer, singing, and art, to engage the hearts of children, even as young as toddlers.
