We Are serious about kids
Helping children and youth know Jesus is one of the most important things we will do. The Vine will intentionally encourage, equip and resource the parent for their ministry in the home. We will also ensure that every child will know more of Jesus and the truth that God isn’t waiting for them to grow up to make a difference in this world.

Sunday morning schedule
Seedlings: 3 Months - 24 MONTHS
Sprouts: 2 YEARS OLD - PRE K
SPRIGS: KINDERGARTEN - 3rd grade
We will have parents register their kids (seedlings, sprouts, and sprigs) at the beginning of the service (before 10am).
Seedlings and Sprouts will be in their rooms for programming during the whole service (before 10-11:15am).
Sprigs will be dismissed during the Greeting for kids’ programming which includes an age-appropriate Bible lesson, interactive small group time, and fun connection with friends and leaders.
New 4th-6th Class will be dismissed during the Greeting for a fun and engaging time which includes using God’s Word, games, and personal relationships to walk with students through their pre-teen years as they develop a closer relationship with Jesus Christ.
WE WANT TO PARTNER WITH PARENTS IN ALL STAGES OF THEIR CHILD'S LIFE.
Need: Security/Safety. Here, we give them their first impression of a Loving God and a Community of Believers.
Summary Word: Embrace
Need: Exploration. Here, they start to compare. Do I have what it takes? The goal is to engage the heart and mind with the Gospel.
Summary Word: Engage
Need: To know they are valued. Who cares about me? In this phase, they gear up and build a shell of protection, but they desperately need to know they are valued and cared for; in doing so, they find vulnerable confidence.
Summary Word: Affirm
Need: To start personalizing and owning faith. Who says so? Why should I believe? There is also the crisis of freedom, but they solidify and own their life with Jesus and explore being a part of an intentional community.
Summary Word: Mobilize
