Faith Church is a Family Centered Church…
Partnering with parents to make a difference in a child’s life!
Our Purpose is to offer your children a place of excitement and discovery,
as they learn Bible Truths and experience God!
Welcoming New Families
Whether you are coming back to church after being away for a while, or you are checking out this church thing for the first time; we want you to know that you are welcome here! If you are new to Faith Church, we invite you to stop by the Children’s Welcome Center before Sunday School or worship service. We’ll help you get your children checked in and walk with you to their room and introduce you to their Teachers. Youth will simply report to their room. See the Youth area below.
What You Can Expect
We ask that all children check in at the Children’s Welcome Center. Your child will receive a name tag. When the service is over you can return to the Children’s Welcome Center to pick up your children. Children 3rd grade and above can sign themselves out to join their family or friends in the fellowship hall (unless parent notifies us otherwise). Youth should give their registration information to their teacher.
A Safe Environment
The safety of every student is a top priority. All volunteers and leaders are carefully screened and supervised, and drivers for youth programs have been background checked with motor vehicle check. For the children’s programs, we have a security process for all children which provides parents the assurance that their child is being well-cared for during all church activities.
Please let us know if your child has any special limitations or needs so that we can accommodate to the best of our abilities. Children’s information we should know can be submitted on the registration form at the Welcome Center, and Youth’s information can be told to their leader or directly to our Director of Children and Youth, Maria Wilcox. It is our belief that all children should be integrated into Sunday where they best fit and feel comfortable.

Children's Church starts in the worship service, then after the Children’s Moment the children ages 4-6th grade can either stay in worship, or go with our Children’s Ministry team to the Drama Room for “Children’s Church” which incorporates singing, praying, learning, and teaching. The format of Children's Church resembles that of "Big Church" and prepares children for the day they are ready for adult worship services.
