Our Values

Create a safe place.

Safety is a big deal to us. That’s why all of our leaders are background checked and thoroughly trained. But safety is more than just physical. We want to go a step further. We want to create an emotionally safe place where every kid feels like they belong, as well as a spiritually safe place where kids can ask questions and explore their faith.

Bring the fun!

We think church should be the best part of a kid’s week! That’s why we place a high value on fun and relationships. Our kids services are full of exciting games, high energy music and engaging activities. And on top of all that, it‘s a great place for your child to make new friends.

Help kids build an everyday faith.

Our goal is to help kids build a faith of their own and put it into action. The best way for kids to grow is through forming meaningful relationships with their leaders and each other. When kids see God at work in someone else’s life, it inspires them to follow their example. After all, kids care more about what they see than what you say!

Help parents win.

The primary influence in a child’s life will always be their parents. As a parent, God has given you have a special responsibility and we want to equip you for your role as the primary spiritual leader for your child. After all, the most important pastor a child will ever have is a parent!
