For Children

Children are a welcome and vital part of our community. Our children's ministry aims to give them a church home where they are called by name and discover discipleship and and grow in love of God and others. 

With special times on Sundays and Wednesdays, and through our weekday preschool, we share Christian values and themes in a variety of ways — through songs, drama, crafts and service. We also give parents tools and resources to help them guide their child’s spiritual development.
Children are welcome in all worship services. Your child can attend age-appropriate Church School classes, and are encouraged to participate in other programs within the church.

If you have any questions or would like to get connected, click here to contact Anne Lowrance, director of children's ministries, or reach Anne at 704-804-7593.

Lively laughter, sweet songs and, OK, even a few infant cries, rise from the first floor of the Education Wing, a place where our youngest children make their first church friends, hear their first Bible stories and sing their first songs about God's love. Within the safe, nurturing environment, the seeds of faith are planted and begin to grow.

Each Sunday children enjoy interactive activities, cultivating their gifts while engaging in discoveries from God's Word. In a nurturing environment that includes singing, prayer, role play, scripture and leadership opportunities, children learn about God's faithfulness and the love of Jesus Christ. Christian service and stewardship also are emphasized through a variety of opportunities.
