We want church to be a place where your entire family is encouraged to draw closer to Christ—kids and parents too! That's why we offer fun and engaging environments where children can learn and grow in faith. All of our kids' programs are designed to be safe places where children can learn new and exciting things about God while being led and cared for by adult volunteers from our congregation. It's our hope to encourage children to not only discover new things about God, but also begin to understand how those things matter in their own lives. We also understand that parents are the primary influence in a child’s faith formation. This is why we provide resources to help parents bring what kids are learning at church to life at home.  

New McKendree Family,

Big changes are coming to our Next Generation Ministry Team.  For the last 5 years, Courtney McVeigh and Jordan Cunningham have served faithfully as our Children’s Ministry Coordinators.  With their leadership we have experienced much growth, new ministries, the launch of our Family Discipleship initiative, and countless other victories that I couldn’t begin to list.  Through all we’ve been through in the last two years, they have been amazing teammates and I have absolutely treasured every Bible lesson, video, event, project and activity we have done together.  Courtney has taken a full time job but will keep our High Street Sunday school resourced until the High Street children’s ministry position is filled.  Although Jordan will continue focusing on our Family Discipleship initiative, we’ll be looking to fill the South Campus children’s ministry position as well.   If you or someone you know would be a potential fit for our team, please have them contact the church office.  Church family, I covet your prayers as God leads us through this transition phase.  God is faithful and I know He will provide, as Pastor Bryan always reminds us, Gods got this!

At Home Weekly

At Home Weekly is a tool to help parents plan intentional time into the rhythm of the family's life for the purpose of thinking about, talking about, and living out the gospel. The As You Go section reviews the lesson the child learned at church this week. The Remember Verse is a key scripture for the month that reinforces a foundational truth. The Family Devotional includes scriptures, activities, and questions to help you lead focused time studying God's word and practicing discipleship.
