Children's Minister

Shelley Greenlee

Kids in Christ’s Service (K.I.C.S.) serves children newborn - 5th grade.  Our hands-on approach and thematic lessons allow us the opportunity to get to know each child and how they learn.  Through Bible stories, we help a child form the foundation needed to transition into our Middle School and High School ministries, where those stories are then applied to everyday life.  We believe that children play an integral part in this world (Matthew 18:1-5) and want to equip them to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others.


How do we do this?

Bible Study - Sunday Mornings at 9am and Wednesday Evenings at 6:30pm


We also several gatherings outside of our normal meeting times including, but not limited to, our “Back to School Splash”, Quarterly "Parents Night Out" events, Fall Fest, an Easter Egg Hunt, and more!


The highlight of our year is spending a week in June at Church Camp.  Children who have just completed 2nd grade - 5th grade join us for a week at Camp Hillmont.  This is always a special time together and memories are made that last a lifetime.
