We believe that Children's Ministry is one of the most important things that we as Christians are called to do. It is our responsibility to help children come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior and to teach them how to live their lives pleasing to Him.  It is also our responsibility to maintain a safe, loving and nurturing environment for this to take place.

sunday school

Welcome to Deep Blue where kids will dive deep into God's Word.  Sunday School is offered for children of all ages at 9:45.  If you are running late and don't have time for breakfast, we have you covered.  Cereal, pastries and juice are offered until 10:00 am. Following breakfast , we all gather together to have music and watch the weekly lesson.  Afterwards, we have fun activities so that we can learn more about God, Jesus, faith, and how it all fits together into life today.  

children's church -

For children ages 4 - 8, we offer Children's Church during the 11:00 service.  The children are with their parents in the sanctuary until the Children's Message, after which two adult staff and/or volunteers will meet the children in the back of the sanctuary and escort them to the Children's Wing.  There they will have an age-appropriate and Christ-centered lesson, craft, activity, game, or short video. Except for Communion Sundays, children are kept in the classroom until parents pick them up after the service.  

On Communion Sundays, please know that we have an Open Table, which means you do not have to be a member of a church to partake.  All that is required is a heart seeking to follow Jesus.  Children of any age are welcome to participate, at their parents' discretion.  Children who are in Children's Church will be escorted back to the sanctuary to join their parents immediately before Communion begins.
