We invest in the lives of children with creative and age-appropriate environments in which children can learn and build relationships with other children. Through Bible lessons, prayer, relationships, and worship we help children connect faith with their lives right where they are—and to help parents prepare their children spiritually for the future. We intentionally strive to partner with parents to help their children, birth through 5th grade—become authentic disciples of Jesus who learn early on to follow Him and LOVE, GROW, SERVE, and SHARE.
We believe that no one is too young to be influenced by God’s work through His Word. While in our care, your little one will be nurtured, valued, and ministered to as prayers anchored in Scripture are prayed over them and songs of faith are sung over them.
The youngest participants in our Preschool Ministry are provided with an age-appropriate foundation in biblical truth for their young lives. By activating these young minds and encouraging their God- given creativity, we teach God’s Word in fun, easy to understand ways—helping them learn through hands-on activities and Bible lessons. With worship, we teach that part of following God’s Word is praising Him together.
K-3rd graders GROW together in both large group and small group settings. Every Sunday, they enjoy a high-energy large group worship session we call WOW! Worship, along with smaller breakouts into Life Groups that are interactive and fun, while helping children build relationships with others and Jesus!
Our 4th & 5th Grade Ministry is built around their developing hearts and minds. Each Sunday, they learn how to apply God’s Word to their lives in a highly interactive format that challenges them to ask and answer foundational faith and life questions that will influence their lives for years to come.
FALL FAMILY DEDICATION
Family Dedication is a time to begin defining a spiritual legacy for your family. We want to do our part to equip you as parents to be the parent God has called you to be. This year, we are doing Family Dedication a bit different in order to best equip and show our families we value them.
An Evening for Parents | October 6 @ 6pm
Parents will spend time from 6:00-6:45pm hearing from Pastor Corts about the biblical call of parenthood, then parents are granted the gift of a date night for the hour and a half while Center Grove provides free childcare. Attending this time with our pastor is a required part of participating in Family Dedication.
Family Dedication | October 22 @ 4pm
Families are encouraged to invite close friends and family to share and celebrate this special time. Light refreshments will be served after the dedication.
Family Dedication is for those who are members of the Center Grove family. If you have not taken a next step towards membership, we encourage you to join us at a future Starting Point opportunity.
