The Forefront family ministry is here to provide a safe place for children to learn about God.

The Kidstuf (birth-5th grade) classes are available during both services every week.

Student Impact meets on the last Sunday of every month during the 11:30am service only.

The nursery is for babies and toddlers under 2 years old. We show God’s love to these youngest children through caring for them. We supplement the care by using simple words and songs to introduce them to God’s message.

The preschool class is for children 2-5 years old. Each month we focus on one of three main themes: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever. Our lessons take stories from the Bible and show how they relate to those themes.

The elementary class is for children currently in Kindergarten-5th grade. Each month we focus on a Life Value (Love, Faith, Knowledge, Humility, etc.) and talk about how the Bible says that value is should be applied to our lives. We want to help children discover that they are already a part of God’s plan and what that means for their lives.

Student Impact is for students in middle and high school (6th-12th grade). It is a place for teens to learn about their faith, build community with one another, and play games. Each teaching series is discussion-based and gives teens a chance to be heard and to listen to each other. We also have donuts!


We dedicate babies each year in the spring! To learn more about why we dedicate, read this blog post from Lead Pastor Ryan Phipps. You can also see photos from our March 2016 dedications here! If you are interested in dedicating your child, please contact Marlee.



Our family ministries are constantly growing, and so we are looking for volunteers to join us. Whether it is holding babies in the nursery to teaching a class of elementary schoolers, we would love to have you! If you are interested in serving in one of the family ministry areas, please contact Marlee.
