Creation Kids is a place where kids grow strong in His Spirit! We offer many ways to help children grow in their faith, from Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights, to our five day a week preschool, to community outreach events like VBS, Trunk or Treat, and Praise Hunt in the Park. We want children to know who God is and who they are in Him!

Sunday Mornings
Children’s Church is available for children three and up during the 8:30 and 11 AM worship services. Staff and Ministry Safe volunteers will lead the children rom worship to Godly Play in the Fellowship Hall of the main building. Of course, children are always welcome to stay and worship with their parents.
 
We currently offer nursery and early childhood care (infant through pre-k only) during our Sunday morning worship services. Elementary age children will need to stay with their family in worship at this time, but plan begin meeting for Godly Play soon.

During the school year, children ages 3 through 5th grade are welcome to participate in Godly Play during all in-person worship services. Godly Play is a Montessori style method of telling Bible stories, developed by Jerome Berryman; using parables, sacred stories and liturgical lessons about religious traditions through simple materials. It invites the listener to connect faith stories with personal experience through wondering questions and open-ended response. Godly Play can help you see and do things differently.  It creates a sacred safe space to allow children to wonder about the mystery of God and nurtures the community of children by promoting Biblical knowledge, empathy, spiritual growth; providing a multi-sensory approach to learning; developing language and communication skills; encouraging thinking skills; and has depth and reflection in every session. Read more about a typical Godly Play session here. 
Sunday School is from 9:45 to 10:35 (between the worship services) for children ages 3 and up.  All children’s classes are located in the main building.  Our preschool classrooms use Hands-On Bible curriculum that teaches them in fun, tangible ways.  Our K-5th grade Sunday school is a rotation based model where the kids learn through art, computers, cooking, drama, games and music, science, and video.  During the summer we have a large group format to focus on bible skills.
During the School year, children 3 years through 5th grade are welcome to participate in the Kids Club program. Wednesday Nights are filled with worship, This program includes our KIDS club choir that performs throughout the year.  Our kids engage in music, creative lessons, games, and service projects for our community from 6:30-8:00PM in the Fellowship Hall.
