Children's Ministries


T.L.C. Nursery

Birth through 3 yrs

The focus of this ministry is to give babies and toddlers Tender Loving Care in an atmosphere focused on praise and worship. We also emphasize Christian character in manners (sharing, kindness, etc.) learning ABC’s and hearing about God’s love and His Creation. The children are prayed for, and they will hear and sing songs to and about our Lord Jesus Christ. We do puzzles, coloring, snack time, and interactive play time!

Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise.
— Matthew 21:16

Kids 4 Christ

Preschool-1st Grade (4-7 yrs)

The focus of this ministry is to teach the children the basics of God’s love-that He loves us, and we can love Him too! We also emphasize Bible stories and building Christian character. We sing songs, hear Bible stories, have snack, learn memory verses, and discover how to weave our faith into our own lives!

...God is Love...
— 1 John 4:7-8

FAITHWALKERS

2nd-5th Grades (8-11 yrs)

The focus of this ministry is to teach the children how to use the Word of God to live a life of faith everyday. In class we have an illustrated sermon which includes visual aides, review games, puppet skits, and other fun activities to help instill the Word of God into the children’s hearts and minds. We believe it is important and vital to teach our children foundational biblical truths.  

We walk by faith, not by sight.
— 2 Corinthians 5:7

L.Y.F.E. Youth Ministry

6th-12th Grades (Tween-teens)

L.Y.F.E. (living."yourway".for.ever) exists to reach the youth of Central Virginia, for them to experience and know God's love, to care for one another, and to help them discover their spiritual gifts and God's purpose for their life. We meet each Sunday morning directly following praise and worship except for the last Sunday of each month, family Sunday.

Honoring God at all times.
— 1 Peter 2:9
