We’re glad you’re here. During services while you get a chance to relax, decompress, and hear God’s great plans for you – your kids get a chance to do the same thing. In one of the coolest, safest, age-appropriate environments, they’re having a blast, being creative, interacting, and learning about the love of God.
It is our desire as a ministry to help children grow in their relationship with God and take next steps in their spiritual journey. Friendship Kids exists to partner with parents. We use the Orange strategy to combine the influences of church and home to fuel faith in the next generation. We believe that parents are ultimately responsible for the spiritual development of their children (Deuteronomy 6:4-9). We also recognize that parents have a whole lot more time with their kids than anyone at church.
Each year kids spend about 3,000 hours with their parents versus the 40 or so hours that they will spend attending church on Sunday. As a result, no one has more influence over a child than his or her parent. Because of this, we believe that what happens at home is more important than what happens at church. We believe that it is our role to partner with parents by equipping them with tools they need to lead their kids spiritually. We do this through Family XP, Preschool Small Talks, and Elementary God Time Cards.

We believe that safety is vital as families entrust us with their children each week. We have a loving, dedicated team that cannot wait to see your children each week. Every member of our team is interviewed, undergoes a national background check, and is thoroughly trained.
Our check-in system generates a unique identification number for your child and pager number for your family. These numbers are printed on your child’s nametag and on a sticker for you to keep while your child is with us. You will need to present your portion of the nametag when picking up your child. If during service our team needs you, your pager number will notify you of this need.
