Equip Parents to equip children for surrender to Christ

Our Vision:

Our vision is to foster within each child the desire to discover God in a personal way and to leave an imprint of God’s love on his/her life that will equip them to declare God’s greatness in every culture through the Jesus life.

Sunday School (Birth – 5th Grade):

10:30 a.m. – Garden City
5:00 p.m. – Adrian

The Gospel Project® for Kids immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through The Gospel Project® for Kids, kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.

Nursery (Birth – 36 months):

9:00 a.m. – Garden City

This is a safe and nurturing environment for infants and toddlers that communicates God’s love. Biblical principles are taught in an interactive environment through the use of stories, conversations, music and various types of play.

Preschool Children’s Church (3 – 5 years old):

9:00 a.m. – Garden City
11:00 a.m. – Lee’s Summit
6:30 p.m. – Adrian
If you’re a preschooler, the world is bursting with newness. Each day is filled with one new discovery after another. Where did that bird come from? Look, the moon is shaped funny tonight! Who thought to color the butterfly like that?
First Look is a web-based curriculum that uses engaging activities to introduce pre-school children to God. First Look gives children a first impression of their heavenly Father and the wonder of His love for each one of them.

Elementary Children’s Church (Kindergarten – 5th Grade)

9:00 a.m. – Garden City
11:00 a.m. – Lee’s Summit
6:30 p.m. – Adrian
Elementary-age kids are in a constant state of discovery. Think about all the different things they are trying for the first time and what they’re learning every day, even how to make (and keep) friends.
How can we tap into the way kids are naturally wired to discover‚ so they can begin to experience for themselves who God is, how He sees them and how much He loves them?
How can we show them God’s big story and help them discover the active part they can play in this life-long adventure, to be more like Him?
252 BASICS curriculum PROVOKES DISCOVERY and invites kids to live out their new understanding of how to grow in relationship with God and with others.
