Our mission is to foster within each child the desire to become a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ. It is our primary goal to impact the children of our community with the message of Christ's love and encourage children to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. We encourage their growth in their relationship with Jesus Christ and His Word through relevant biblical teaching, positive role modeling, creative fun and opportunities to discover who God created them to be. For more information on our Kid's ministry, contact Mindy Burnell. Her contact information can be found here.

Your Child’s Safety
For the safety of your children, all of our volunteers who work with children have been screened and completed a background check. Fellowship of Praise implements a user-friendly check in system. Each time you check-in, you will receive a name-tag displaying your child’s information and a randomized numeric code. Please attach this name tag to your child’s clothing. In addition to your child’s name tag, you will be given a printed parent claim tag for child pick up. This claim tag will match the numeric code on your child’s name tag. When picking up your child, your teacher will match the code on your child’s name tag with the one on your claim tag. Your code number will appear on the screen to the left of the stage in the Worship Center if we need to page you.
Group child dedications are held twice a year in March and September. Your child will receive a Bible and your family will be presented to the congregation.
No matter your ability, we can always use you! Here are several ways to help support Kids Church: Volunteer 1 or 2 times per month to serve in any of our nurseries/ classrooms as a teacher or a teacher’s helper. Volunteer to assist with special events: Whether it is a special service or any of the special events we do, there are many opportunities to be involved.
