Children

We know that parents are the primary spiritual influence in a child’s life, so everything we do is meant to come alongside mom and dad. The “Little Lumens” ministry for infants – 4th grade seeks to partner with parents to help kids develop a faith in Jesus Christ that lasts a lifetime. The health and safety of your child is our priority. All volunteers are interviewed and given a thorough background check. Rooms are cleaned and sanitized regularly. Our vision for children is simple: a safe place where a child can come to learn who God is and encounter Him in a real way. We commit to this vision by living out and upholding our own faith and desire the following for each child:

  • Experience opportunities to serve with others.
  • Develop an understanding of God’s Word.
  • Learn to follow Jesus and be the LIGHT for Him.
  • Value them as the precious gift God created them to be.
  • Discover the incredible love God has for them.

We want to make the check-in process as smooth as possible for your family, so all you need to do when you arrive is find the check-in table located in the front lobby and we’ll take it from there! The ministry is led by our Children’s Director, Britney Ibarra.

Special Needs

We believe it is all part of God’s plan to care, love and welcome children and adults with special needs into our church community. Therefore, we consider it a privilege to offer a fun curriculum in a self-contained classroom with opportunities to integrate with peers.

We provide a well-trained staff of volunteers and caring individuals to make Sunday the best day of the week for your family member. We understand your loved ones have different ways of learning, so we are excited to be able to get to know your family member in a safe, fun, and loving environment where we get to share, learn and explore Jesus with them.

We ask that all parents/guardians/caregivers fill out our Parent Survey Form before attending to allow our staff to plan accordingly and equip our volunteers with your information.

SHINE meets during first service at 9:00am on Sunday mornings.

Please contact our volunteer special needs coordinator Aly Fox at alyfox3@yahoo.com.
