Our Kids Ministry welcomes all, ranging from birth to 5th grade. We are the GROW kids. It is our mission to come alongside families as their children GROW mentally, physically, socially, spiritually and in Christ-likeness. We base this mission on Luke 2:52 "Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and mankind."
We desire to come alongside families in their mission to be the spiritual heads of their household, because time is short!
See this video to learn about our strategy for partnering with parents.
We also join our church in our mission to "Connect our communities in a meaningful relationship with Christ" as we G.R.O.W. "Go Reach Our World".

This new option is going to be a lot of fun! It is for families to attend two days at the insanely fun Camp Cotubic. They have rock walls, giant swings, blob, zip line, lake, fishing, and more! Your family will be your "cabin". You can stay in a cabin or bring your tent/ camper. We plan to have all of our GROW kids' families attend the 4th session, July 26th-27th. The cost is $85 per person or $75 if tent camping. This camp will not allow siblings younger than Kindergarten to attend.
SCO kids camp changed! Due to COVID restrictions lifting we are able to offer some extra activities for camp this year.
We will offer a night of family camp July 26-27. Bring your whole family (age Kindergarten and up)!
Pastor Ashley or a member of our friendly GROW kids Ministry staff will meet you at the children's check-in before worship on Sunday mornings or on Wednesday nights at 6:45! Children's check-in areas are conveniently located outside each children's worship area. Our check-in process assures you that your child will be safe and well cared for while you are worshipping. We will only release your child to YOU with the help of our check-out system. We are committed to keeping our children safe.
As a part of our commitment to equipping families for GROW kids ministries, children of all ages learn the same story in a developmentally appropriate way each week!
Children’s Worship is for K-5th graders on Sunday mornings during the 9:30 am, and 11:00 am services. We have a dynamic story-time with live actors, puppets and magic on our farm stage during large group time. We also have caring adults building relationships with children during small group time. We have opportunities for 4th and 5th graders to engage as leaders within Children’s Worship.
Preschool Worship is for our 3-Kindergarten age students on Sunday mornings during the 9:30 am and 11:00 am services. Our kid’s divide into age groups and have a shepherd who guides them through a rotation of fun, hands-on learning. Children experience music, Bible stories, crafts and games.
Nursery and Toddlers
The nursery is for newborns-18 months and the toddler room is for 18 months-3 years old. Children experience songs, Bible stories and crafts as they play together and with their teachers. These areas are open for Sunday services and on Wednesday evenings.
"All in all, growing up in the Nazarene Church was a good thing. They got me memorizing Scripture as soon as I could read, and I have certificates and a framed picture hammered out of copper to prove it. The Nazarenes are really into Bible quizzing--they even hold international competitions--so it's hard for those of us who grew up in its ranks not to emerge as amateur Bible scholars...
Foutunately, the strong biblical training I received while growing up served me well when, as an adult, I reexamined my faith. Mostly Nazarenes are friendly bunch... and you'll find a spiritual home that can nurture you in a personal, passionate relationship with God."
