Director of Children’s and Women’s Ministries
For children from the cradle to 5th grade, The Children's Ministry Team creates safe and energetic environments and uses biblical lessons, music, games, and storytelling, in order to communicate three core truths: I need to make the wise choice; I can trust God no matter what; I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

936 weeks. That’s the approximate time you have from the moment your child is born until he or she graduates from high school. It goes by fast, and kids change and grow quickly.
When you look at a timeline like the one below and realize you only get 13 phases of life to shape your child’s faith, it really brings into perspective how important right now is. Starting this term, we are offering a unique family experience as an option in our Wesley Night line-up that will allow parents and children some combined spiritual formation time, as well as breakouts for parents and children. We’ll worship together, play together, learn together, then when the children move to their lesson, parents will spend time learning about how to help their children “Trust Jesus in a way that transforms how they love God, themselves, and the rest of the world.”
Your kid is changing every week! Just as you begin to figure them out, they shift or move on to a new rhythm, a new habit, and a new opinion. It can make the responsibility to shape a child’s faith and character feel overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to.
That's why we are here. We want to partner with you to help you Parent like every moment matters. That's why we created this new Family Experience. During our time together you'll get a chance to worship, learn, and play with your children as they learn about God. Then you'll get to experience the Parenting Through the Phases Small Group study. It's a small group series that will help you discover what’s changing about your kid. We’ll also talk about the 6 things your kid needs most, and 4 conversations you’ll want to have with your kid starting today!
Wednesdays through the fall, starting September 12th at 6:45pm. 1440 Boone Aire Road Florence KY 41042. Don’t miss out! Click the button below to sign-up.
