Our vision is to lead children into an intimate, dynamic, and powerful relationship with Jesus in order to fulfill the Great Commission of bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to a lost and hurting world.

Connect KiDS offers a place where children of all ages can discover and develop a passion for God. Through worship, teaching, and a variety of fun activities, children are exposed to God’s Word and challenged to grow in their relationship with God.

Birth to 2 Years

Our nursery is staffed with professional, caring adults who provide a safe and secure environment conducive to your child’s physical, social and spiritual growth. Each volunteer has met background requirements. When you are confident in leaving your baby in the care of our staff, then you are able to worship with a sense of security. We have taken great care to prepare our nursery room to be the best environment for your baby with age appropriate toys and an opportunity to interact with others. As we hold the babies, we pray for them to receive all that God has for them in life. We believe every child we pray for will be touched by God.

2 – 3 Years

Our 2s and 3s classroom is staffed with professional, caring adults who provide a safe and secure environment conducive to your child’s physical, social and spiritual growth. Each volunteer has met background requirements. When you are confident in leaving your toddler in the care of our staff, then you are able to worship with a sense of security. Your child will have ample opportunity to interact with others in a safe and fun environment, while learning about God and His love for them through age appropriate Bible stories, songs, and activities.

Pre-K – Kindergarten

During services, your child will be in the care of several trained volunteers, all of whom meet required background standards. Our goal is to encourage preschoolers in a growing, loving relationship with Jesus Christ and others in an atmosphere where they feel a sense of belonging. We present biblical learning materials with a hands-on approach to help establish in the hearts of the children an active faith toward God and His Word. We have designed age appropriate classes just for them. We teach the simplicity of the Gospel through a variety of stories, crafts, Bible action songs and other activities. Every lesson taught reinforces Biblical truths.

1st – 2nd Grade

Our elementary small and large groups are staffed with adults and high school students who are committed to teaching and ministering to children. Each volunteer has met required background standards. We utilize the Orange 252 Kids Curriculum, where everything we teach is based on one of the three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52. 

      • I need to make the wise choice.
      • I can trust God no matter what. 
      • I should treat others the way I want to be treated. 

The curriculum is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a deeper relationship with Jesus. It focuses on 150 Key Bible Stories, 4 Faith Skills, and 30 Life Applications. You can be confident that your child is well-cared for and having a great time learning about God while you worship.
