To prepare, equip, and disciple children, through study of Scripture and training in Christian disciplines; supporting the work of the Holy Spirit and their parents to bring them to new life in Christ and help them to live it abundantly.
Kids Alive exists so children will know the
- Life they have
- In Christ, the
- Vision He has for their lives, and the
- Excitement of telling others about Him.
Infants and toddlers are lovingly cared for in a safe environment during all regularly scheduled times of worship and study on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.
Each Sunday morning from 9:15 to 10:15 children meet in small groups with a caring adult and other children their age to learn Biblical truths and spiritual discipline. Children may have units that cover topics such as heroes of the Bible, the characteristics of God, Old Testament offerings, the parables of Jesus, or prayer, just to name a few. Kids Alive Sunday school is offered for children age 2 through fifth grade.
