Summer Programs

Living Life On Purpose

When we understand how God uniquely created us on purpose, it makes an awesome difference! How we interact in friendships, at school and in family relationships can be transformed. Throughout the summer, Children & Family Ministries is focusing on inviting kids and their families into these truths as they learn to live out their identity in Jesus together.


Sundays, June 4–September 3, 9:30 & 11am
Children focus on the fruit of the Spirit from Galatians 5, learning how God grows their character. They'll participate in engaging activities, singing and Bible-focused videos.

Grades 1-4

Sundays, June 4–August 27, 11am only
Kids and leaders interact with engaging gospel-focused learning through worship, community, discipleship, service and outreach.

NEW! Grade 5: RISE

Sundays, June 4–August 27,11am
Rise is designed to uniquely meet 5th graders right where they are by encouraging their daily experience with Jesus.

There is a coordinating program for parents to help families experience this transition together.

Parents Summer Community

For age 3–grade 5. We're all uniquely wired and wonderfully made! This summer's experience helps kids and families learn how God made each of us in His image and yet unique at the same time. What an incredible way to show God’s power by exploring the special way He made us with the purpose of making a difference. Families have an opportunity to learn, grow and experience the encouragement of Christ together. Cost: $25.
