We believe that children are spiritual beings, created by God. Even the youngest children can experience the Holy Spirit and be spiritually transformed.

Created By God 2024

February 2 - 4, 2024 (Friday: 6 - 9 pm, Saturday: 9 am - 6 pm, Sunday: 1 - 3 pm) **Parents join on Sunday

Human sexuality is one of God’s greatest gifts to people. Created By God is a weekend retreat designed to communicate to fifth graders that we are a fantastic creation made by God. The topics of human sexuality, values and relationships are approached in a frank, honest and Bible-based manner. This is one of our best attended events and it will prepare you and your pre-teen to have honest and open communication around the topic of their sexuality. Parents are required to attend an information meeting in order for your child to participate.


Spiritual Transformation

Our Children's Ministry is unique. Open to children ages infancy through 5th grade, this is more than childcare. We believe that children are spiritual beings, created by God to experience God's love in deep relationship with Him. Even the youngest children can and do experience God. The God Centered Model for Spiritual Transformation is a unique model we use with our children. It gives each child the opportunity to encounter God's Living Word, the Bible, and then allows space for that experience to bring them into the very presence and heart of God.

Through activities such as Sacred Circle Time, Holy Listening and Blessing, our children are not only taught Truths from the Bible, these Truths are brought to life in their hearts. They are given space to process the story through play. They are taught to meditate on God's Word and listen for how God is speaking to them. Our trained Holy Listeners, give each child a chance to be heard as they share what God is putting on their heart.
