God desires all to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth (1 Tim. 2:4). We see children as an important part of that “all.” Our Kids’ Church coordinators provide a safe, positive, and educational atmosphere for our children to make friends, have fun, and learn about Jesus and the Bible. We currently provide care during the church service for children up to the age of 10 years old.

The Christian life does not stop with belief and baptism. Our Higher Ground discipleship series is built upon mentor-based relationships. We strongly believe that people disciple people and it usually happens in small numbers. Higher Ground is segmented into short, manageable areas of focus.
Solid: In order to continue following Jesus in the midst of this chaotic world, the Christian life must first have an indestructible foundation. This study tracks the fundamentals of salvation, using Solid, a book written by John Myer. It surveys all the pertinent Bible verses that illuminate the uniqueness of Christ, what it means to be saved, how to be saved, how to know for sure you are saved, and how to know you will be saved forever.
Presence: Christians need a dynamic devotional relationship with our highly relational Savior God. This practice-oriented discipleship will help a person develop the habit of spiritual self-feeding. It utilizes the workbook Presence by John Myer and Seth Evans which focuses on spending time in the presence of God through prayer and the Word.
The Main Point New Testament Survey: As a people who derive truth from the Scriptures, it goes without saying that we should make it our business to understand the Bible! This survey by John Myer assists not only in reading the New Testament, but also in learning the theological point of each book. The emphasis here is upon enrichment and education.
Life Shapes: The overall goal of discipleship is to have your life shaped by Jesus Christ and to then help others be conformed to His image. Utilizing the book Building a Discipleship Culture by Mike Breen you will learn, implement, practice teaching, and then look to disciples others into a holistic lifestyle growing into the image of Christ.
