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. Kids’ City meets during our Sunday 10:15 am service time on the first level of Wentz Concert Hall. For more information, contact Ann Smith, Kids’ City Director.

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 Sundays at 10:15 am (6-8th grade) and 7 pm (9-12th grade). For more information, contact Jordan Biere, Student Community Director.
