We believe children are one of our most precious assets and are committed to partnering with you, as parents, to lead your children to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. Join us as we advance the Kingdom of child at a time!


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.

Kairos Quest Artwork  

Kairos Quest
Begins September 2016

There is an amazing God working behind the scenes of our everyday lives. While our lives may seem ordinary and boring, God is waiting to break into our day and take us on an adventure. In this adventure-themed series, kids learn how to pay attention to those “Kairos” moments, when God invites them to join His epic quest. Kids will discover how to hear from God and act on what He tells them. Look for this new adventure starting Wednesdays this fall!

Family Events  

Family Events (For Families of 1-6th Grade)

Twice a year Faith Christian Community offers family events with an emphasis on positive role modeling. These events partner with the home to instill a sense of healthy relationships within the child. The first scheduled event is a large-muscle, get-'em-going game day for mothers and sons, along with a sit-down luncheon. The second is a father and daughter dance, a fun-filled evening for young girls. Volunteers will take the lead and express their creativity to make each ocassion a wonderful and memorable event, leaving each child feeling loved and respected.


The New Curriculum—ORANGE!
It’s simple. Orange is a strategy that combines the critical influences of the church and home to incite wonder, provoke discovery and fuel passion in the hearts of the next generation. Learn more.
