Whether through Sunday morning gatherings or camps and special activities, our goal is to help children learn about God in a safe environment. We also work to support parents as they have daily opportunities to teach their children about God. Below is information about our children's ministry. Also be sure to check out our Parent Resources and download the Bible App for Kids which includes access to free companion video resources for parents.
Roar Vacation Bible School - Children ages 3 (and potty-trained) through 5th grade are invited to Roar VBS, June 17-21 from 6:00-8:45 pm. At Roar VBS, kids discover that even though life gets wild, God is good. Roar is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences that kids can see, hear, touch, and even taste!

Child Dedications on Mother’s Day - We’ll have dedications during the service on May 12. Contact Marilyn Moore by email if you’re interested in having your child dedicated on that day.
Parent Resources - Why is there a growing epidemic of anxiety disorder growing among children? It is, in fact, one of the fastest growing problems among young children. Children younger and younger are dealing with anxiety. Maybe it is even a problem in your own home with your children. This month’s Online Parenting Class is taking on this tough topic, with love and grace.
The Ultimate Parent Guide to YouTube - YouTube is the second-most popular website in the world, with over 400 hours of content uploaded every minute. This free resource will help you learn how to protect your child while they use YouTube.
Mom’s Morning Out - The first Saturday of each month, young moms are invited for a relaxing morning of conversation and coffee at Panera (located at 1765 Kirby, Champaign). To RSVP email Marilyn Moore. (Due to space limitations, this is a moms only event.)
Check-In - Parents will check-in children ages 3-5th grade in the north hallway via electronic check-in. Children will receive a numeric name/security tag while parents will take a matching tag for picking up their child at the end of a session. Also, don’t miss the fresh paint in the hallways!
Sundays at 9:00 am & 10:30 am
There is care for the littlest children all morning in the middle hallway. Sessions for toddlers include a children’s Bible story. A nursing area is provided for mothers in the crib room.
Sundays at 9:00 am
Children ages 3-12 years enjoy Bible stories, singing, and activities in the north hallway classroom wing.
Sundays at 10:30 am
Children 3 years – kindergarten have their own Bible lesson, learning activities, and play time while children grades 1-5 participate in active worship through singing, engaging Bible lessons, games and activities. Groups meet in the north hallway.
Please arrive a few minutes early when it is your first time to register your child, so we can give them the best care. Children are given security tags and parents take matching tags that are presented at pick up time.
