Life Kids and Youth Worship:


**Our student ministries for kids and teens are not currently meeting in person.  Families and students can find great tools to learn and grow together at home on our Church at Home Resource page **



Life Kids

on Wednesdays at 7 PM, is held from September through May for students in grades K-4.  The kids have an entire floor of our Student Ministries Building (420 N Main) to themselves as we purposely invest in their young lives.  Our gifted team of leaders provide fun music, creative and colorful puppet skits, live and interactive Bible stories, challenging games, video segments, meaningful crafts and tasty snacks in a carefully planned environment where each child is valued and cared for.  We use the Bible as our textbook and lead the children on an interesting adventure through the great stories that teach us all so much about life with God.  In the five years that they can be involved in Life kids, they will hear many of the great stories of the Old Testament, and be introduced to the unconditional love of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  Each lesson is thoroughly planned and engages the kids on a level that they can understand and apply in their lives at home, school and with friends.  They will be encouraged to pray and worship and serve others as an important part of the Church today!

If you are looking for a ministry to help your children or grandchildren discover more about life with God, we encourage you to visit a Wednesday night or contact us with any questions that you may have about this great part of Life Church.    

Rides to our location are available for students on the Lifesaver bus.  Check it out at  

Life Kidson Sundays is for age 4 through 6th grade!  There is also a Nursery provided for infants through age 3.  Kids are welcome to participate in their own separate time of worship and learning that runs concurrently with the adult service.  Caregivers can take a break and enjoy the adult service while the kids experience what we hope will be one of the best parts of their week!  Kids should be checked-in before the adult service starts and the same adult(s) should return to the kids areas to pick them up afterward.



Family Nights! Family Night

A few times each year, the kids invite their parents and families to Family Nights.  These are fun experiences for all ages to come together and enjoy a time of learning - Life kids style.  The theme of our big group games or challenges, music, crafts, skits and message all point to a truth for families from the Bible.  Look for these dates on our calendar page.


Lake MitchellPark or Lake days!  

In the summer we also host a few dates at one of our city parks or at Lake Mitchell.  The kids will be invited to bring the whole family for a day of laughing and learning together.  These summer outings are a great chance for families to enjoy some time together and focus once again on the One who gave His life to save us - Jesus Christ.  Watch for dates on our calendar page. 


Know Him!

youth worship is for students in 5th and 6th grades and both middle school and high school.  They meet year round on Wednesday nights @ 7 PM in our Student Ministries Building (map)  The doors open at 6 PM!  The official start time is 7 PM!

We have dedicated the entire main floor of our building for the teens to be equipped and refreshed and also as a launching pad for outreach into our community.   Pastor Bill's first "title" within this ministry was youth pastor.  After more than 25 years of loving and ministering to teenagers, both within our church family and through our teen center, he still leads this ministry determined to offer real life, challenge and hope to the youth of our community.  We are blessed with a great and gifted team of volunteers, most of whom have been with us for many years.  

Students are encouraged to develop a close relationship with Jesus Christ and discover how He has gifted them to make a positive difference in the world around them.  We want teens to really "know Him and make Him known!"  There are many opportunities for students to serve or give of themselves as they live out the adventure that God has for them.  Teens will also be encouraged to find a place to serve in other areas of ministry as a part of Life Church.  You will see them involved in many ways during our weekend times of worship or serving as important parts of projects in our community.
