Children becoming more like Jesus
by learning & living God's Word

sundays @ 9:30am and 11:15am

Classes available for nursery thru 5th grade during both our 9:30 am and 11:15 am service.
Please arrive early to check-in at the Family Building (1925 Eastman).  Check-In begins 20 minutes before service time.

Of course, we'll need to work together to help keep Children’s Ministry a safe place for everyone, so please stay home if you are not feeling well.

Mission & Vision

To see each child come to know Jesus Christ at their personal Savior at an early age. Our desire is for every child to flourish and thrive in the study of God’s Word. We pray that they would have a lifelong intimate relationship with Christ that uniquely bears the character and image of Jesus Christ.
Our mission is to provide opportunities for children to experience God’s presence and provision.  We devote time for worship, prayer, and studying the Bible. We encourage them to apply the truths contained in Scripture and to explore these truths for themselves. As each child grows in the wisdom of the Holy Spirit they will be “salt & light” to others through their words, actions, and choices.
So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of His will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce very kind of good fruit.  All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.
Colossians 1:9–10


The Children's Ministry invites you to become involved in serving where there is a great need - Sunday School Teachers & Assistants, Wednesday Night Teachers & Assistants, Check-Ins Team, CM Patrols and Children's Worship.

We are looking to build a team to open up Children's Church for 3rd service. Opportunities to serve are also available for 2nd service and Wednesday evening service. 
Please sign up, if you would like to help our children to grow in the knowledge of God by serving in Children's Ministry.

*Please note that all volunteers must be at least 13 years of age and those over 18 years old will require a background check.
For more information, please contact Bernadette Borcena at [email protected] or call (805) 330-1192.

Children's Worship Team

Does your child express the desire to worship God by using their musical gifts? Do you want to see them grow in their relationship with Jesus?
If so, we invite you and your child to participate in our Kids’ Praise Band where they can develop their love for God by serving others through music!

Please contact Bernadette Borcena at [email protected] for further information.

In His Image

In His Image Special Needs Ministry partners with our Children’s Ministry to provide the support of a “mentor” for some children with disabilities while their parents attend Sunday service.

If your child has special needs, and you feel he/she might benefit from some level of support, please contact us prior to bringing your child to Children’s Ministry on Sundays or Wednesdays.

You’re the expert, so please allow time for you to share your child’s specific needs with us so that we can best serve your family. From there, we will joyfully do our best to pair them up with a caring trained & screened mentor.
