Serving Children with Special Needs—Sundays, 10:30AM

It is our heart to serve families who have children with special needs. Soon we will offer our ‘Free2FLI’ program—a program specifically geared for K-6th grade children with special needs. This program will be offered at our 10:30AM service. To learn how you can get your child involved, contact Elementary Director Tammy Bierman.

Summer Kids Camps


WOW! Kids (Birth to Kindergarten)
Early Children Program —a first impression of a loving heavenly father.
Children enjoy age-appropriate fun, Bible stories, and worship while in a safe and inviting atmosphere led by loving and dedicated leaders. Little ones will thrive on the program designed especially for them. Our goal is to demonstrate God’s nurturing nature, engage the five senses, help a child by age five to believe God made me, God loves me, Jesus wants to be my friend forever, and Jesus is my Lord and Savior. Our WOW! Kids' program is available at all services.


F.L.I. Zone (Grades 1-6)
Faith, love, and inspiration—that's what it's all about in the F.L.I Zone. Our time together begins when children are checked into their small groups to participate in an activity building friendship with other classmates and to introduce them to the day’s topic. From there, students can expect a fast-paced worship service and group prayer. Returning to small group, they will hear a message reflecting the teaching offered during the adult worship service, fostering dialogue with the family about the service. The truths are applied through games, crafts and other class activities, reflecting our vision to follow Jesus wherever He leads, to love Jesus and others, and to inspire others to follow Him. The elementary program is available at all services.

Club 56: Ordinary Kids, Extraordinary God
Fifth and sixth graders are invited to participate in Club 56—a club designed with you in mind that is energetic, fun, sporty, and service oriented. Catch us in action during regular service hours (SAT 6PM & SUN 9AM, 10:30AM and Noon).


Free2FLI (Grades K-6)
At the heart of Free2FLI is to bring the message of Jesus to children who need an individualized approach to learning. The goal is to minister to the family and child as the child learns and understands the opportunities he or she has to use their God-given gifts to reflect Jesus to the church and world around them. If you have a heart for kids with special needs, consider partnering with us in this ministry. View volunteer job description for our Free2FLI teacher and Free2FLI buddy.
