Quest exists to equip kids to bring God glory by making disciples of all nations.


Where?

  • If your infant – Kindergarten child(ren) goes to the 9:15 Bible study, there is nothing else to do before Quest. We will keep them in the kids wing to start Quest at 10:30am.
  • If you arrive before the 10:30a hour, you may check your infant – Kindergartener in at the Kidz Wing, and bring your 1st – 4th grade kid with you to the Worship Center. You can check them in at the Welcome Center (in the main lobby). They will worship with you and then we dismiss them with the leaders to go to Quest.
  • The 5th Sunday of the month, 1st – 4th graders stay in worship center with families to worship.
  • Then you may pick your kids up in the Kid’s wing after the service.
  • The only exception is when we have Communion and or baptisms scheduled, then we bring the kids to the WC to experience those special moments with you as a family.

Why We Are Here

Our Children’s Ministry exists to equip kids to

  • bring glory to God (VISION)
  • by making disciples (MISSION)
  • of all nations (GOAL)

We desire for kids to have a personal relationship with Jesus that impacts the way they live their life and those around them.


Who Is Quest For?

We have three age groups:

  • Infants – 2yr
  • 3yr – Kinder
  • 1st – 4th Grade

How We Are Doing It

We’re excited to bring kids along on a great worship adventure we call QUEST. Imagine a kid’s worship experience where they come away with all of the things we desire them to spiritually, and they have a blast doing it. That’s why we’ve designed QUEST in a unique way to help them to do just that. At QUEST, kids will rotate between various experiences each Sunday with the hope that we are fulfilling some specific needs.

We have six guiding principles for Quest

  1. Kids learn the Bible
  2. Kids learn to worship
  3. Kids feel loved by volunteers
  4. Kids have FUN
  5. Volunteers grow in their personal walk
  6. Volunteers are positioned for success

What Our Volunteers Are Saying

“Kids are willing to listen to a person who genuinely loves them. When they become an adult, many things that are taught at that young age are recalled. God chooses how and when to build on this. It is putting into an eternal safe deposit box whereas each passing day the deposits value is multiplied.”
David McCracken , Elder and Kid's Ministry Volunteer

“Serving in the children’s area allows us to see a glimpse into the future. We are blessed to watch and help lay the foundation as God builds his kingdom. We watch the light grow brighter in each child as they learn more and more about Christ. They gain eternal knowledge that will be used for a lifetime to help themselves and others. What joy it is to see a child give his or her life to Christ. Serving kids is such a blessing and so much fun!!!
