"And he said, "With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use for it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when sown on the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth, yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes larger than all the garden plants and puts out large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade." - Mark 4:30-32
"It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men" - Frederick Douglas
The mission of Mustard Seed Children's Ministry is to lay Christ as the foundation in our children’s hearts so that they can live lives that are holy and pleasing to God. We will accomplish this by 1) giving our children the opportunity to know and understand who Jesus Christ is, 2) creating an environment in which our children can experience the love of God, 3) teaching our children the means to live a fulfilled, giving, and joyous life through worship, Bible study, and lessons on Christian living, and 4) partnering with parents, who are the most important influences in a child’s life.
Mustard Seed Children's Ministry is during the 11:45 AM service.

Newborn - 2 years: 2nd Floor, Nursery
For your convenience, there is a nursery on the 2nd floor with a changing table, microwave for heating up milk and baby food, play mat, and play pen where your children can play safely. The entire worship service is streamed live on a TV monitor so parents can participate throughout.
Toddlers/Preschoolers (2.5 - 4 years): Classroom A2, 2nd Floor
Your growing toddlers will begin to learn about the attributes of God and His Son Jesus and start reading stories from the The Beginner's Bible. We base lessons off of the Toddlers Knowing God series. Through games, crafts and worship, toddlers will learn through active participation!
Kindergarten (5 - 6 years): Classroom B2, Lower Level
We use The Beginner's Bible and The Gospel Project curriculum, systematically taking the children through the Bible in one year. The lessons use games, interactive art projects, videos, and more to make the stories come alive. They will wiggle, giggle, get messy, and get involved in the greatest story ever told: the story of a great God who loves the whole world.
1st - 3rd Grade (6 - 8 years): Classroom B3, Lower Level
All elementary aged children start off their Sundays worshipping together in B1 and then break out into their classes for age-appropriate Bible lessons and activities. This class uses the Jesus Storybook Bible curriculum, learning how every story in the Bible points to Jesus and what it means for their lives!
4th - 6th Grade (9 - 11 years): Classroom B1, Lower Level Level
Elementary aged children start off their Sundays worshipping together in B1 and then break out into their classes for age-appropriate Bible lessons and activities. This class uses the Faithweaver NOW curriculum, learning about how God's Word is applicable to their lives.
