SUNDAY CITY KIDS MINISTRY

School Age (K5-5th)

City Kids School Age is a service for 5K-5th Grade that takes place on the lower level of the church during our 8:30AM and 11AM service times. Kids experience worship, prayer, and teaching to help them grow in Christ.

child dedication

Child Dedication takes place every few months during our Sunday morning services. It is a public declaration of parents' commitment to raise their children in a Christ-centered home. We know that ultimately, our children belong to the Lord. We also know that it takes a village; and that is why we want to come alongside parents and families in helping raise children to grow in their own personal relationship with Jesus.  Click below to sign up for the next opportunity.
