BIRTH - PRE-K
Establishing a foundation of Godly character in children's hearts.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We are dedicated to providing a warm, loving, Christ-centered environment for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Our purpose is to demonstrate and teach the love of Jesus through specially developed, age-appropriate curriculum. During each Saturday evening and Sunday morning worship services, our toddlers, three and four-year-olds enjoy a unique story time with the “Bible Story Teller,” which includes Bible-teaching and worship in song and prayer. In the individual classrooms Bible-crafts and activities reinforce the story, plus the children get to have fun having playtime too! We have classes and nursery every service on the weekends.
Children's Ministry Location
At Porter Ranch, our classrooms are located in the northeast and southeast areas of the building that face Corbin Avenue, on the main floor. Stop by our Information Center to be directed to the individual classrooms. Or visit our new family counter in the children's ministry building.

WHAT WE OFFER
Every weekend service we provide Kindergarten through 5th grade programs for the kids. These are fun, interactive and exciting, Bible-based services. There are three important thing we want your kids to walk away with; I can trust God no matter what, I can make the wise choice and I should treat other the way I want to be treated.
