We live in a confusing world where it can be hard to know what’s right and wrong. It’s even more confusing for children. We want to help you teach your children core values like honesty, forgiveness, compassion, charity, faith, and love. It’s our belief that children who learn these values at a young age will grow into happy and successful adults. We also know kids need a place where they can make good friends with others that share these values. We can be that place for your children.   Of course it’s not all serious. We know that kids learn best when they’re excited and having a good time. We work hard to make activities for your children exciting and fun. All volunteer leaders are background checked to insure the safest possible place for your child to learn and grow!   If you love children and can help, please download our volunteer application and return it to Tianna Ritzman

Our Mission  We are a team of leaders who are passionate about growing our diverse group of children to be like Jesus from the inside out.  In Ministry Today, the goal for a transformational children’s ministry “isn’t to just  hold their attention for an hour; we want to capture their hearts for a lifetime. “ Each one of us has an important role in maximizing every moment to build up children who are passionate about Jesus. We are excited to partner with you as parents to embark on this vision together!

“Train up a child in the way he should go…  when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

Classroom Core … The 3 Cs: Commitment, Curriculum, and Classroom Management.  The most important part of commitment is for us as leaders to build lasting relationships with your kids so they can build a relationship with Jesus. The other part of commitment is preparing CHRIST-CENTERED lessons that are interactive and fun. Throughout the week, we pray for your kids and we pray that we are prepared to teach impactful lessons that are applicable to your child’s daily life. Our goal is to design age-appropriate curriculum with activities that foster a fun, interactive approach . Classroom management is important when creating a safe place where kids can have fun learning in a cooperative, respectful environment.
