Great Lakes Kids Ministry

Equipping + Partnering with Parents to Disciple Kids

Great Lakes Kids is a safe, fun place for kids to learn about loving God and loving others! We believe parents and guardians are the primary spiritual leaders for our children and Great Lakes Kids Ministry is called to support and equip the home to take on that anointed role.

Great Lakes Kids is available for children 6 weeks through 5th grade during the Sunday service. A secure check-in system ensures a safe environment for families.

We use Orange Curriculum for our Elementary + PreK programs.  What is Orange? Check it out here! We are striving to partner with parents and is one way parents can stay in touch with what we are doing in Great Lakes Kids. There are parent blogs, videos for the kids and more!  Check it out here!
