Our desire is to see this next generation raised to a life in Christ.

ABC's of the Encounter Kids Ministry


Sunday Mornings

Every Sunday children ages birth to 5th grade, are taught the Bible in a creative and relevant way. We take kids on a Christ-centered, chronological journey through Scripture. Kids discover how the gospel unfolds from Genesis through Revelation. When kids truly experience the gospel, their hearts are transformed. It is Jesus, not good behavior, that changes everything.

Encounter Kids is designed with your child in mind.








From praying over our infants to age-appropriate lessons for toddlers, preschoolers and elementary kids, eKids is kid-inspired with energetic worship music, interactive games , small groups, and super fun environments!

Wednesday Evenings

Bible Busters, our Wednesday evening gathering for kids in K-5th grade, is a club that strives to get kids into God's Word regularly.

We learn and memorize His
Word through activities, songs,
mid-week booklets and games!

We learn and grow by "solving" some of
the Bible’s most popular and unpopular stories and applying that to our lives in a practical way.

                         For the younger ones,                                   babies to preschoolers,                                 we provide childcare on                                 Wednesday evenings while 

 parents attend small groups.








LIT is for kids seeking an opportunity to dive deeper into scripture and apply it to their daily lives.

This class gathers to raise up the next generation of servant leaders as they learn to set examples in speech, life, love, faith, and purity.
