Faith Church is a Family Centered Church!

Partnering with parents to make a difference in a kid’s life!


Our Purpose is to offer your children a place of excitement and discovery, as they learn Bible Truths. We strive to create a safe environment that is appealing, and offers educational value to your children.


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 a worship service. We’ll help you get your children checked in and walk with you to their room and introduce you to their Teachers.


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 4th grade and above can sign themselves out.


A Safe Environment

The safety of every child is a top priority.  All volunteers and leaders are carefully screened and supervised, and a security process for all children provides parents the assurance that their child is being well-cared for during all church activities.


Special Needs

Please let us know if your child has any special needs. We will accommodate your child’s needs to the best of our abilities. It is our belief that all children should be integrated into Sunday where they best fit and feel comfortable.  

Sunday School--"Deep Blue"

9:00 - 9:45 am

For children in Pre-K through 6th grade, we are rolling out a new generation of Sunday School with Deep Blue from Cokesbury!

Deep Blue is the new awe-inspiring resource for children which includes adventure, exciting stories, science experiments, arts and crafts, animated video storytelling, and active games-all combined into a living–faith experience that will help children discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ today!

"In the depths of who I am I rejoice in God my savior." Luke 1:47

With Deep Blue, children will make Bible stories, Bible people, and Bible passages a part of their lives. They will also come to know the Bible as THEIR book and find ways to let the Bible speak to them today!

The Deep Blue kids—Asia, Edgar, and Kat—will lead the children through the Bible using animated videos that tell the story. The student resources-the Bible Story Stuff, the Kids Activity Stuff, and the Deep Blue Kids Bible—are colorful and engaging, encouraging the children to “dive deeper” into the Bible and explore their faith in fun and age-appropriate ways.
