             By guarding it according to Your Word." (Psalm 119:9)

    PRESCHOOL SUNDAY SCHOOL is a ministry for bed babies and children through pre-kindergarten.  Children will learn Bible stories and engage in age-appropriate learning activities.


    EXTENDED SESSION is our nursery ministry that takes place during our morning worship service.  We provide optional care for bed babies through pre-kindergarten ages.

    CHILDREN’S SUNDAY SCHOOL is a ministry for children of kindergarten age through 6th grade.  This group is broken down into two groups: K – 3rd grade and 4th – 6th grade.  We use a curriculum called “FaithWeavers,” and the material is grade sensitive to ensure that our teaching is age-appropriate.


    CHILDREN'S CHURCH is an opportunity for our children of kindergarten age through 3rd grade to engage in worship alongside their peers.  This is an alternative to the adult worship experience.  Our caring team leads the children in worship and biblical teaching.  We use crafts, videos, Sunday School lesson review, and play time to create an environment of learning and fun.


    KIDZ BLAST is a Sunday night program that includes drama, singing, and play.  This program is open for children from four years of age through 9th grade.


    THE GOSPEL PROJECT is a Wednesday night program for young people ages three and up.  "The Gospel Project" is a Lifeway curriculum that takes young people on a three-year chronological journey through the Bible and shows how Jesus Christ is connected with all of Scripture.


    VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL is a four-day summer program where children come together for worship, Bible teaching, crafts, games, and food. Each summer there is a central theme that coordinates all of our activities. The primary purpose of VBS is to share the love of Jesus with children, so that they might be drawn into a lifelong relationship with Him.


    PRETEEN CAMP is a five-day summer camp for children going into the 4th, 5th, and 6th grades.  For the past several years, we have attended Camp Copass on Lake Lewisville near Denton, Texas.  Camp Copass engages young people with biblical teaching, praise and worship, and sports activities.  Our preteens also have the opportunity to interact with kids from other churches that attend the camp.

  • youth

    SUNDAY SCHOOL for our middle and high school students begins with a time of social interaction that includes a snack and casual conversation.  It continues with a time of worship.  After worship, we dive into the “FaithWeaver” curriculum, which challenges our young people with the reality of Jesus Christ's lordship in our lives and how that applies to our daily behaviors.


    YOUTH CHURCH is for 4th through 12th grades and meets on Sundays during the main service, at 11:00 am, in the youth chapel.  It features live worship, practical Bible applications to real world situations, and fellowship.  Our focus is on revealing God's plan for the future and helping our youth consistently turn to Jesus in all aspects of their lives.  We spend the last Sunday of the month and all special occasion services in the main worship service.


    SUNDAY EVENING activities are scheduled from time to time and may include additional Bible studies or activities away from the church.


    THE GOSPEL PROJECT curriculum is geared for youth also.  As we engage with The Gospel Project on Wednesday nights, we also set aside time for sharing a meal, Bible study, life studies, and recreational activities. 


    YOUTH CAMP is for our 7th through 12th graders.  This year, we will head out to Student Life Camp at Midwestern State University, in Wichita Falls, Texas.  This camp focuses on missions and allows our students to serve in a meaningful way without losing the fun and discipleship that are part of camp.


    OTHER YOUTH ACTIVITIES include off-campus educational and cultural growth events, Christian events, mission trips, and other fun outings that enhance student community.
