Illuminate Children’s Ministry

Thank God for Children's LaughterIlluminate Children’s Ministry is dedicated to igniting a passion for Christ, allowing children to experience God’s love first hand and be able to be a spark in their homes and communities for God.

We offer services to children from infant through 5th grade, with community outreach and ministry programs.

  • Children’s Worship is a dedicated time during our 9:15 am service on Sunday mornings providing inspiring worship through music, Bible lessons and prayer.
  • Connect Kids continues the atmosphere of worship by providing instruction in music, art and dance every Sunday evening at 4 pm.

Sunday Care

  • We offer a safe, healthy and loving environment in our professionally staffed Nursery, managed by a registered nurse and several CPR certified aides for the infants to two year olds allowing them to experience God’s love and grow in grace through Bible focused videos and stories. The nursery is available Sundays from 9 am until 12:15 pm.
  • On Sundays, we also offer the Illuminate Pre-K center for children ages 3 to 5 years providing a learning environment where His word comes alive with stories, pictures, art and fun activities stimulating your children to learn more about Jesus.
