At Central, we consider it a privilege to serve families with children in a fun and spiritually engaging environment. Through building strong relationships, we are committed to partnering with parents in cultivating disciples for Christ. It is our desire as a church to see kids realize that the most exciting life he or she can live is a life lived for Christ. Your kids are important to us, so we’ve created a place for them to learn about Jesus on their level. Each week, all children (K5 through 6th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way.

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. 3 John 1:4
What to expect on your first visit:
When you come to our campus there will be friendly faces waiting to greet you. A welcome team member will be glad to show you around and help you to register your child into our security system. Your child’s security is of the upmost importance to us. We will ask you about any allergies at this time as well as any other special needs your child may have. You and your child will both get a sticker with a matching code. If for any reason we need to reach you during the service, we will text the number you provided. The security sticker is also what you’ll use to pick-up your child after the service.

Sunday School and Kids Worship Schedule
9:00 service: Grade K5-2 Kids Worship on 2nd floor HQ
Grades 3-6 Encouraged to attend Worship with their family
10:30 service: Sunday School Life Groups for Grades K5-Grade 6 on 2nd floor
Our Kids' Worship meets in the large Kids HQ room on the second floor of our children's wing. Our 10:30 Sunday School classes meet in individual classes on the second floor. Each class is clearly marked by age/grade.
Each week your child will be taught and encouraged by our ministry volunteers with God’s word and fun activities. Kids Worship begins at 9:00 a.m. for K5 through Grade 2. Grades 3-6 are encouraged to attend with their families the large worship service, but are always welcome in Kids Worship. 10:30 a.m. Sunday School/Life Groups are available for grades K5-6th grade.
Sunday School is a time of small group Bible Study and activities. Kids Worship allows children to also study God’s Word, but includes other elements of worship including singing songs, prayer, and a time of offering. Kids Worship gives children a worship experience designed for their age and attention span and prepares them for the years ahead when they will worship with the rest of the church.
M&M’s (Music and Missions)
During the school year we combine two exciting programs. The children in K5-6th grades go to music where they have fun singing, playing bells and other instruments, and generally having fun while praising God. After 45 minutes, they switch to missions education through RA’s (Royal Ambassadors) for boys in grades 1-6, GA’s (Girls in Action) for girls in grades 1-6, and Mission Friends for Kindergarteners. During this 45 minutes they not only learn about missionaries, but participate in mission projects and learn how they can spread the love of Jesus as they grow.
A few other things you'll want to know:
What should your kids wear?
Whatever is comfortable; Dressy or play clothes are always welcome! Central Kids is a fun, active environment. Your kids will be playing, singing, and dancing as they learn about Jesus in small groups and large groups.
Interested in touring Central Kids?
We'd love to have your family visit Central Kids during the week! If you're interested in a weekday tour or have any additional questions, please email our children's director, Katie Creery.
The ride home
We encourage parents to keep the conversation going on the car ride home. Ask your child these two questions: Did you have fun? What did you learn? Our goal is to have a positive answer to both of those questions each week. Your child will receive weekly take-home pages to help you as a parent in discipling your child.
