Our vision is that your child will be established in their faith on a transforming journey with Christ. In the end, that is what life is really all about. The grades will not be set in stone, the accolades of sports will fall away, but a thriving relationship with God through Jesus Christ will last forever.
The Mountain is our weekend ministry to children, and occurs during each of our weekend services. Saturday evenings at 4:15 pm and 6:00 pm and Sunday mornings at 9:15 am and 11:00 am.
Age Group: Birth through age 3 (after September 1st)
The Nursery is located the lower atrium. We want to provide a safe place for our youngest attenders to bloom. The nursery rooms are clean, equipped with age appropriate toys and books and divided into three age groups: 0-12 months, 12-24 months and 24-36+ months. Each week our nursery learns about their Maker and Savior adapting our Base Camp (Preschool) Curriculum to suit their age stage.
Age Group: 3 years old by Sept 1st through age 6, and an optional Transition class for 2.5 years of age and older.
Mountain exhibitions continue at Base Camp. Base Camp, using the climbing analogy, is where climbers gather supplies, receive final instruction before a climb and where their journey begins. So it is with the Base Camp portion of our Mountain program.
Our Base Camp occurs at all four services and is for children ages 3 (by September 1st) with an optional transition class for children who are 2.5 through age 6. Base Camp is located in the long hallway of the lower level. The Explorer room is our transition class and is geared for children ready to transition from the nursery before the date of birth cut off. The Under the Sea room holds our 3-year-olds (by September 1st). The Safari room is home to our 4-year-olds (by September 1st), and our late 4’s and 5-year-olds (5 before March) start their journey in the Forest room.
Never boring, our children begin their adventure with a large group teaching and song time that takes place in the Lodge room before returning to their rooms for their small group time. That’s right, even our preschool students are in small groups. We believe that if we can engage them in community at an early age, they will never want to live without it. In their small groups, they play games, read stories, do crafts and eat snacks that are all centered on the lesson of the day.
Age Group: Kindergarten through 6th Grades
As the journey leaves Base Camp in the rear view mirror, the next goal is climbing the Mountain. These elementary years mimic well an actual Mountain expedition; parts are challenging, thrilling, exhilarating, deflating, stretching, but our desire is that final destination truly resembles summiting Mt. Sherman – breathtaking.
Our Mountain program also occurs at all weekend services and is for 1st-6th-grade students. Our trail groups (broken up my grade and gender) meet in the specific areas to start the program before kicking off the service with worship and large group teaching. After our large group time is done, our groups move into a rotational time of small groups (trail groups) and activity time, before ending in the same place where they began.
To take advantage of these great programs, your first stop is the New Family Check-In station in the lower atrium. Volunteers will help check your kids in and escort you to the right location. You will receive a tag for you and stickers for the kids. Your tag will be required to pick-up your child at the end of the service to ensure the safety of all of our kids.
To make your first-time check-in faster you can start here by filling out your family information ahead of time.

Playgroups for Moms of Young Children
Age Group: 6 and under
This is a great experience of fellowship for moms with children birth through age 6 and a fun time for the children to play, hear a story, or do a craft! Our prayer is that this wouldn’t just be another commitment to make and manage but a sweet necessity to help you find community as a mom. All our events are open to the community and we would love for you to bring a friend or to meet you the next time!
We look forward to you joining us on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month through May (exceptions December and May 2nd Wednesdays only).
