Jesus said, "...children are the kingdom’s pride and joy.” (Luke 18:16 MSG)

We believe kids matter. They matter a lot.  

So because kids matter, we want to make their church experience engaging, relevant and memorable.


All of our Life Kids’ classes use the Orange curriculum. This curriculum is focused on the idea that red (the love of the family) + yellow (the light of the church) = orange.  We believe that “two combined influences make a greater impact than just two influences”.  So, we will be connecting not only with kids, but with parents to make sure they have the resources and tools to follow up with what the kids have learned on Sundays.


Each of our classrooms have trained teachers and assistants who love God and love kids. They are ready and prepared each week to teach them and love them! All of our Life Kids’ classes take place during both the 9:30 and 11:00am Sunday Celebrations.

boys and girls missionary challenge

BGMC is the AG missions program for kids that instills a heart of compassion to reach the lost through praying, giving, and going. All funds raised through BGMC go to meet critical needs around the world such as feeding programs, water wells, Bible schools, curriculum, and whatever else a missionary needs in their part of the world.


Each month the Powerzone class interrupts the main church service for a "shake-down", collecting change (and bills) to give to the BGMC cause.  The children learn about what missionaries are doing around the world, and how they can directly contribute to spreading the gospel.
