Children

Welcome! Here at ProgressiveKidz Children's Ministry we believe that God has given parents the privilege of training, teaching and nurturing their children regarding His word. It is our desire to partner with families to instill Biblical truths and values in their children. We founded these principles modeled from the Bible in Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and Psalms 78:1-7 as the foundation to our Children's Ministry.

 

We operate on a ministry year that begins in September and ends in June. During the ministry year, kids and their families will enjoy weekly Awana Sunday Clubs, Children’s Church, Genesis (Nursery), as well as monthly family fun events. Our Summer Bridge season begins in July and ends in August. Kids can expect Sunday morning Bible adventures as well as VBS Kids K.A.M.P. and family fellowship events.

The ProgressiveKidz Children's Ministry adopts a C.L.E.A.R. approach to ministry

  • Learner-centered (i.e., learner-based)

genesis nursery ministry

At Progressive we understand that no one is too young to begin learning God's truths. Our Genesis Nursery provides an opportunity during our worship service for children ages 1 to 5 years old to learn about Jesus's love for them in a safe, healthy and enjoyable environment.

To ensure safety, Genesis operates on a teacher student ratio of 1:4 for ages 1-3 years old and 1:6 for ages 4-5 years old.

We meet every 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sunday. Check-in begins at 10:45 AM in the lobby.

We meet every 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sunday. Check-In begins at 10:45 AM at Guest Services
