helping people find their way back to God
What kids/students programs do you offer?
Infants through 5th grade
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.
6th through 12th grade
Student Community (StuCo), our student ministry, is a movement toward helping students find their way back to God. In fact, we believe that StuCo could be the most influential force in our community, so we are set on challenging students to grow in there key relationships: with God on a daily basis, with each other for encouragement and accountability, and with the world to restore God’s dream for all of creation. We do this through weekly gatherings, relational small groups, serving opportunities, and life-changing special events and retreats.
StuCo meets Wednesdays at 7p (doors open at 6:30). For more information, contact Victor Negreiros, Student Community Director.
