Connecting Children to Christ
(for children 0-5th grade)
We “Think Orange” by working with the parents to disciple all of our children. We believe that two combined influences have a greater impact than either influence could alone. That’s why our church loves the color Orange. When we combine the light (yellow) of the church (us!) with the heart (red) of the family (you!), we get a stronger, more vibrant color.
WE PARTNER WITH YOU TO HELP YOUR CHILD:
- See God for who He is
- See themselves the way God does
- Love others the way He does
Our Sunday mornings include a large group experiences that will captivate your child’s attention and teach them more about God and His story. We also have small group environments where your child can connect with the same leader and the same children week to week. They’ll build friendships with people you trust.
The large group is high energy with the purpose of engaging children to learn about Jesus Christ. The small group is led by a committed small group leader who builds a relationship with the children through games, prayer and conversation.

We all want to be strong and courageous. We all want to say we would be brave when faced with fear. But how? What can help us be brave? How can our preschoolers be strong and courageous Super Kids without the capes and super powers we see in the movies? This month we plan on giving preschoolers the answers to all of these questions.
We want our preschoolers to grow up knowing that they can be brave because God is with them. How awesome would it be if preschoolers began thinking, ‘God can help me be brave,’ when they are afraid to walk into the dentist office or talk to a new friend at school. Rather than shy away, they can go for it! And, they don’t even need a cape or a mask!

GOD VIEW: THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE COURAGE AND GOD’S CHARACTER, AS SHOWN THROUGH GOD’S BIG STORY
Throughout our lives, God may ask us to take risks or do something we may not feel prepared to do. But God will also give us the courage we need to face that challenge. We see this as Jesus faced death on the cross. He chose to be brave and follow through on God’s plan.
The very first Christmas looked a lot different than the one we will experience over the next few weeks. It was a string of God planned events that would come together to create a wonder filled story that would be told again and again and again. God sent His Son to earth in the form of a human baby who grew to be a man like no other. Ultimately, He gave His life for us. This month, we celebrate the beautiful gift of Jesus. We want preschoolers to say again and again that, ‘God gave us Jesus.’
We want it to live deep within their hearts so they grow to trust that God loves them with a love so great that He gave them His one and only Son, Jesus, to be their friend forever. May we all pause under our own starry, starry night this year and remember the wonder of what we are celebrating. God gave us Jesus.
GOD VIEW: THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE JOY AND GOD’S CHARACTER, AS SHOWN THROUGH GOD’S BIG STORY
God is the source of our joy. Our circumstances might not always make us feel happy, but we can have joy knowing that God is in control. Through Jesus, God made a way for us to have a relationship with Him. Knowing Jesus can give us joy no matter what’s happening around us.
