SATURDAYS • 6 PM | SUNDAYS • 9:30 AM & 11:00 AM

In Ignite— we point kids to Jesus by giving them a place to worship, to learn Life Apps through engaging Bible stories, and to participate in small group time with a leader who believes in them. Kids gather as a large group to listen to the Bible story and worship through song. Children finish out each session of Ignite in small groups where they will participate in meaningful activities and discussion to reinforce the key points of the lesson.

In Ignite we concentrate on Three Basic Truths:

  1. I need to make the wise choice
  2. I can trust God no matter what
  3. I should treat others the way I want to be treated

We realize that many kids attend two service times. To ensure they are engaged, motivated, and enjoy their time with us, we will provide different elements each hour. Each session of Ignite will contain different worship songs, videos, and live teaching elements, and also different activities during small group time. 

 WEDNESDAY • 6:30-8:00 PM

We gather Wednesday nights during the “school year” for fellowship, large group games, and small group discussion. Kids will rotate through the night by grade level. Recharge invites us to expand our hearts and minds as we continue to learn about our Life Apps beyond Sunday mornings. This is an opportunity for children to spend more time engaging with the Bible and to expand on the lessons they learn in worship each week. All children are encouraged to invite friends to this awesome midweek experience.


Celebration Place is the children's program that meets at the same time as Celebrate Recovery and mirrors the adult teachings. We help the kids understand the language of recovery and give them coping strategies, techniques, and values to help them overcome negative family patterns. Children also enjoy games and snacks.
