We want to have a ministry that is exciting for children to learn, explore and seek God with all their questions, curiosity, and enthusiasm.

A ministry in which teachers and leaders passionately can disciple children and parents are equipped to raise their child to know Himwe minister to children.

That is our hope, vision and we would love for you to join us in this aim.




Preschool thru 6th Grade

The elementary curriculum for Orange is called 252 BASICS, which provokes DISCOVERY by inviting kids to live out their new understanding of how to grow in relationship with God and others.

Children meet in the Jungle Room at 9:45am and begin with a short video and a time of worship. Then they go to their age appropriate classes and learn more about the love of God. All classes are done by 10:35am, in time for the the contemporary service.

Next Gen Teachers are: Shanae Peterson, Bekka Sievert, Andrea Martin, Steve Parks, Gary Binda and Pam Nelson

If you would like to register your child please fill out this form. Thanks.


Children ages 3 through 6 years old are invited to attend Children's Church on Sunday morning during the message time of the Contemporary service (2nd service). Children will be invited to go down to the Jungle Room with an overhead slide and then they will have a lesson, game and project time led by wonderful parents and volunteers. Parents can come in and watch or you can come get them after the service.


The nursery is safe and loving environment for birth through age two during the Contemporary (2nd) service. We have two helpers during this time with a pager available to let you know if we need your help.  Please contact Megan Hemphill if you have any further questions and/or would like to serve God in this ministry.


On the south side of the sanctuary there is a room for families to go during the service. If your child needs some time during the service please take them there, but we want children to always be supervised by a parent so please use this in a quiet manner since it is off the sanctuary.
