Hometown Nazareth (Where Jesus was a kid)


Come join us for a week-long adventure in Jesus’s hometown - Nazareth: Vacation Bible School -July 15th-19th at church.


Walk-ins are of course welcome.

Our Mission

Partnering with parents, we strive to help kids know and love Jesus, become more like Him, and share Him with others.

First Visit with the Kids

Take advantage of one or all of these offerings on your first visit. Here's what you can expect when visiting KidZone with your kids:

Kids’ Church 9:50ish-10:40: Kids 4 years thru 2nd Grade.

Before going to ‘Big Church’ with you at 9:30 am, stop at the Kids’ Check-in Table to check in your child. Affix the label to your child and save the pick-up portion to get your child after Kids’ Church. They will be dismissed to Kids’ Church about 9:50 am, and can be picked up after 'Big Church,' if your child is 2nd Grade or younger.

Cookie Time… 10:40 am-11:00 am: Coffee and cookies for all in the lobby upstairs!

All-Church Come for More Growth Groups 11:00 am-11:45 am: 45 minutes of age-specific learning of God’s Word and its application to their lives. Kids meet downstairs in KidZone. 2's & 3's are in the Nursery

(Note: We are pausing for the summer and will resume September 8, 2024.)


Kids' Church…9:50ish-10:40ish

  • Your child will join you in ‘Big Church’ until about 9:50 am and then be dismissed to Kids’ Church.
  • Accompanied by an adult Leader and at least one Youth Assistant, they will head down to the KidZone for Kids’ Church. (The kids will be checked to ensure they have a check-in label before going down, so don’t skip the check-in part!)
  • To pick them up after the service, take a left at the bottom of the stairs in the KidZone. All kids through 2nd Grade must be picked up by a parent or guardian with their pick-up tag.

Cookie Time…10:40am-11:00am

Hangin’ out time in the lobby. Get to know somebody after the service. Help yourself to a great cup of coffee and yummy cookies, and be sure your kids get some! A restroom break is also a great idea for the little ones before Growth Groups.

Come for More Growth Groups…11:00am-11:45am 

(Note: We are pausing for the summer and will resume September 8, 2024.)

Our Kids’ and Youth classes are:

Preschool 2- and 3-year-olds: Northwoods Nursery

Kindergarten 4- and 5-year-olds: Room 115

Grades 1 and 2: Room 107

Grades 3 and 4: Room 105

Grades 5 and 6: Room 112

Grades 7-12: Room 111

A Kids’ Ministry Leader will be in the KidZone helping you find a room if you need help. 

All kids through 2nd Grade should be escorted to and from their Sunday School class.

You are absolutely welcome to attend any session on any Sunday with your kids.

Safety and Security

  • All Kids’ Ministry Adult Workers have a current background and reference check.
  • A security label and corresponding pick-up tag identify the appropriate parent/guardian for Kids’ Church pickup.
