Our state-of-the-art Nursery for children birth to two years old is the ideal place for your child to begin learning about God’s love. Our friendly and experienced staff will help your child feel welcome. We will assign a pager to you during the time your child is in the Nursery so that you may be contacted in the event your child needs your attention. Mothers of babies are invited to view our church services through a live video feed in our inviting Nursing Mothers’ Room located next to the Nursery. One-way glass in our Nursing Mothers’ Room allows moms to peek into the Nursery to check on their babies. We also offer a Family Room, next to our worship center. The Family Room offers a Closed-Circuit TV and a sound-proof viewing area which allows families with restless babies and small children to enjoy the church service.
Our incredible preschool wing is the perfect place for your preschooler to learn about God. The bright and cheery atmosphere will bring smiles to your preschooler’s face. Your preschooler will love the giant “Fish Slide,” new toys, and fun atmosphere. Please join us each Wednesday at 7:00 PM (during the school year), Saturday nights at 6:00 PM, and Sundays at 9:30 AM or 11 AM on the main floor in the Children’s Center. We’d love to see you!

ACTIVE INCLUSION MINISTRIES (AIM)
AIM is designed to integrate individuals of all ages with special needs into the body of Christ. Our team reaches out to help them feel unconditional love and acceptance regardless of their abilities. Our vision is to create passionate, equipped ministers and ministries, with the specific mission to actively involve these individuals. The AIM team raises awareness, educates people, and then allows God to change their hearts and perspective toward those with special needs. Active caring is more than nice words; it is doing something to show your love, kindness, and interest. AIM provides programs enabling parents of persons with special needs to worship together, buddies for children helping them participate in classes, adult shadows for adults who need to be accompanied to classes or worship, opportunities to use their unique gifts to serve, and trained ushers and greeters to help direct and connect individuals to an AIM team member. To learn how you can become an Adult Shadow, Children’s Buddy, Usher/Greeter, or Trainer, complete an online AIM application.
