The Values of CityKids

At the root of CityKids are the following Biblical values:

  • Knowing God, being sown with the seed of God's Word. (Luke 8:15, 2 Corinthians 9:6)
  • Growth is the result of spending time in God's Word, prayer and fellowship. (Psalm 1:3, John 15:16)
  • Growth comes only from God (1 Corinthians 3:5-7, John 15:5)
  • Fruit of the Spirit is the evidence of growth. (John 15:16, Galatians 5:22-23)
  • All disciples are commanded to "preach the good news" of Jesus and to make more disciples for him. (Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:15)


Fall Programs In Progress
Summer in CityKids is winding down! We will be wrapping up on September 10th, with Nursery and PreK activities available during the 9:30 service. Our Fall programming will be launching on September 17th! Starting that week, we will have programs for nursery and PreK for the entire 9:30 service in the basement. We will also be trying out a new Children's Church option for children in grades K-3 during the 9:30 service, in which kids will be dismissed during announcements to enjoy some kid-friendly Bible teaching, and will return to their families in the sanctuary near the end of the service. During the 10:45 hour, we will have programming for ages 0-5th grade while the Adult Sunday morning communities meet upstairs!

In all of our programs, we are striving to support children on their journey with Jesus by providing them with engaging Bible stories, age-appropriate activities, and caring attention from leaders who love the Lord.

Meet Maggie!
