Our Message Simplified: 
Jesus is Lord and he loves you.

Our mission is to develop lifelong followers of Jesus. We have the opportunity to engage with the kids and youth in our community every week through our kidmax and theUNDERGROUND programs, and we create our own teaching materials for both of these ministries.

Our approach is to teach stories within the context of the overarching Biblical narrative, so that kids and youth can learn individual stories, where those stories fit in the larger context of the Bible, and where they as people fit into God’s story. During the school year, our teaching will cover the Old Testament, life of Jesus, and the Early Church.

Each week of our teaching is framed around four key elements:
  • God Story: a portion of the Biblical narrative, looking at key Biblical characters
  • Life Story: a real life example of kingdom living that brings God Story to life
  • My Story: application activities
  • Our Story: resources for families to apply at home
Looking to track along with what your kids are learning in kidmax? Check out our Parent Blog for lesson recaps, video resources, and at home activities to continue your child’s story at home.
