Gathering Families serve children and students ages 0-18 years. We believe that parents are the most influential spiritual leaders in a child’s life. Our goal is to partner with parents to provide their kids with a solid spiritual foundation that will lead them to an authentic faith in Christ. We offer three distinct programs as our part of that partnership. Read the brief descriptions of each ministry below.
Gathering Beginnings offers Sunday morning programs for babies through Kindergarten. Classes are available during both the 9:00 am and 10:45 am services. We use First Look curriculum which teaches children basic stories and truths from the Bible through a variety of creative ways.
Gathering Kids offer Sunday morning programs for 1st-5th graders during the 10:45 service only. Gathering Kids have their own large group worship and teaching time in addition to small group time with their own specific age groups. We utilize the Gospel Project curriculum, which walks the kids chronologically through the Bible over a three year period. It is our hope that the kids will see how all the stories of the Bible tie together and point to Jesus.
Gathering Students include all 6th-12th graders and meet on Wednesday nights during the school year. We meet at 6 pm for dinner, games, worship, teaching, and small groups discussions. It is our goal that our students experience Christ in an authentic way through positive relationships and Biblical teaching.
