Children's Ministry


Birth – Grade 5


NURSERY: Newborns – 24 months

9:00 and 10:45am — Both Campuses

Our goal is to create a safe and secure environment for your little ones so that they love their experience from the very beginning. We view ministry to this age group as foundational in building a child's trust in a loving Heavenly Father.


PRESCHOOL: Age 2 – Pre-K

9:00am — Both Campuses

10:45am — Both Campuses

Preschool kids enjoy learning in interactive ways. Our goal is to bring the teaching of Jesus to children through puppetry, games and object lessons.


ELEMENTARY: Kindergarten – Grade 5

9:00am — Both Campuses, September thru May only

10:45am — Both Campuses

Your children will learn how to weave faith into life through meaningful activities, great discussions and personal challenges. Each week after a worship time full of songs and prayer, kids break into grade-level groups to learn how to apply biblical truths to their daily lives.




VBS is a free program held for a week in June for children who have completed kindergarten through grade 3. Kids always have a blast during this action-packed event filled with songs, games, arts and crafts, while learning more about Jesus and biblical truths.

Fall Family Festival All Ages

Usually October 31, Shakopee Campus

Skip the fright and spend the night in His light. It’s a celebration with giant bouncers, games, prizes galore, lots of great food, a special glow-in-the-dark room, and of course, lots of candy! There is a small entrance fee.

MOPPETS Newborn – 6 Years

September thru April only, Both Campuses

This is a childcare program held specifically for moms who are attending MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers). MOPS is a place for moms to gather for a much needed break – to make new friends and share the joys and struggles of raising kids.

Child Dedication All Ages

Various Times Throughout The Year, Both Campuses

A dedication is a covenant by the parents to raise their child in the ways of the Lord until the child is old enough to make his or her own personal commitment. When we choose to have our child dedicated, it gives parents, as well as extended family, friends and the church an opportunity to thank God for the birth of the child.

Parents dedicate their children back to God, asking for His blessing. They promise to nurture their children in a Christian home and environment, and are challenged to guide and teach their children in spiritual development. There is no water involved, and the child is not automatically saved, or in the faith, because of the ceremony. Faith is passed on to our children by helping them develop their own personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

You can view our events page to find upcoming child dedication dates.
