Faith Factory Children's Ministry
Did you ever think the best and most fun hour of your child’s week would be at church? It can be! We have created an amazing space for kids, a play place with a purpose.
Our goal is for every kid to have a blast while being creative, interacting, and learning about the Love of God. We offer interactive learning, experiences in a colorful and engaging atmosphere. From illustrated Bible lessons to puppet skits, Faith Factory has more fun than you can squeeze into a Sunday!
To help kids/students connect into a growing community of multiplying Christ-followers. We accomplish this through helping kids live the Way of Christ, enabling them to:
Love God (Attend) – We teach kids who God is and what it looks like to live in a loving relationship with him. Mark 12:30, “Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
Build Character (Grow) – Through relationally based programs and events like dedications and baptisms we partner with parents and assist kids in taking steps of spiritual growth. John 15:4, “Remain in me, and I will remain in you.”
Love People (Connect) – Through small groups and intentional organization, kids will experience consistent community with peers and adult leaders who serve as spiritual leaders. John 13:34, “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
Be the Body (Serve) – We help kids realize that they are part of a collective body bigger than themselves and that through God’s power, they can make a significant difference in the world for Christ.
Matthew 28:19-20, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Lead (Multiply) – As kids grow in their faith, we help them see that they can influence others for Christ. 2 Timothy 2:2, “You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others.”
