Birth-5th Grade

Laying a solid foundation of faith:
reaching and teaching kids about the love and hope found in Jesus
and equipping their parents.

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."   Matthew 19:14

Birth — 5-year-olds

Kindergarten — 5th Grade

Our Refuge Kids Early Childhood weekly environment is created especially for your infant (six weeks) through preschool-aged children. We believe in an active, hands-on approach to learning with preschool children. So, you can plan on a lot of jumping, singing, dancing, and laughter in every experience. Be on the lookout for fun crafts and big games.

We want our preschoolers to understand:
God made me, God loves me, & Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
We can’t wait to meet your child! We know things are busy at this stage of life and your child is learning and growing in amazing ways. We would love to help care for your child! Please contact our Kids Ministry Director if you have a question.
We want to give our elementary kids a firm foundation grounded in three basic truths:
Wisdom - I need to make the wise choice.
Faith - I can trust God no matter what.
Friendship - I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

During our Wednesday night activities and time together on Sunday mornings, our elementary kids participate in large groups and small groups.  In large groups, they will engage in an awesome time of worship, games, and age-appropriate Bible stories.  We use costumes, props, and characters from the story—anything that makes the Bible come to life.  In small groups, kids will see how God’s Word fits into their everyday lives, learn how to talk to Him, and build friendships that will last.  Feel free to contact our Kids Ministry Director if you have a question.



During  both  Worship Services 
Kids ages 4 through 2nd Grade will go learn about God on their level during the sermon portion of our worship service and return before the end of the service while the adults stay in the sanctuary. Children's Church is provided during both our worship services on Sundays.


9:45-10:45 am (Sept-May)
Connect classes (what we call Sunday School) take place on Sunday mornings between worship services.  Age-appropriate lessons provide kids ages 4 and up with the spiritual foundation they need to grow and follow God's own heart. Kids and parents learn at the same time - just in different rooms.


6:15-8:00 pm (Sept - May)
Kids in Kindergarten-5th Grade will learn more about Jesus in our lives while they participate in an exciting time of music, drama, Bible learning, and games. Enter through the lower doors on the south side of the building for a safe and secure check-in.


June 3 -7
Kids in Preschool through 5th Grade go deep into an amazing undersea adventure where they’ll experience the ever-flowing, never-ending love of God.  At Scuba VBS, kids will be immersed in the Word and discover what living water is really all about! During the week of VBS, families can also sign up for Family Meals.
