Kids’ City, the children’s ministry here at COMMUNITY, is committed to helping families find their way back to God. We provide fun, age-appropriate, Bible-based activities and teaching for kids every weekend for infants through 5th grade. Every month, we cover one core virtue that shows God’s character in creative and engaging ways. It is reinforced with key Bible stories, a monthly memory verse and additional resources to use at home.

We want kids to know God’s big story and help them discover the active part they can play in this life-long adventure, to be more like Him. For Kids’ City parent resources, click here. For more information, contact Shannon Gutierrez, Kids’ City Director. Kids’ City meets during our normal service times: 10 and 11:30am.
