Ignite Children & Youth Ministry

Ignite Children and Youth Program
Setting hearts on fire for Jesus

Our children and youth are the future of our church and our world! Ignite, our robust student ministry, offers a safe place for children and youth to grow their relationship with God at a level they understand. They explore Biblical principles each Sunday through age-appropriate teachings and activities.

We know that parenting is hard, and we want to help you out beyond just Sunday mornings. Each week, we provide Parent Cues, which help connect what your kids are learning at church with what they’re hearing at home. (You can even get the app!)

Birth – 5th grade:
Program takes place every Sunday from 11:00am – 12:00pm. Parents are welcome to attend our 11:00 worship service at this time.

Curriculum Details:

Spark (birth - 2.5 years)


During the Spark program, your baby or toddler will experience quality care from our loving teachers. Your children will interact with other kids their age, and do basic activities and learning together.

Ember (2.5 - 5 years)


The entire Ember program is constructed to meet your children where they are cognitively, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially. Through age appropriate activities, your preschoolers are building their spiritual foundation so that by the time they graduate to Kindergarten they know these three basic truths:

  • God Made Me
  • God Loves Me
  • Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever

Our Parent Cues provide provide ideas for Play Time, Drive Time, Bath Time, Cuddle Time and Morning Time that connect what preschoolers are learning at church with what they’re hearing at home.

Glow (kindergarten - 5th grade)


Our Glow program is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. This is taught through three basic truths:

  • I need to make the wise choice.
  • I can trust God no matter what.
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Children meet in large group time to sing and learn, but then break out into their small groups for additional crafts, games and discussion.

To continue the learning throughout the week, download the Parent Cue app! You’ll receive prompts for videos, activities, discussion questions and more that help you guide your child into a deeper faith.

Shine (6th - 7th grade)


The Shine program exists to help middle schoolers experience three things: wonder for who God is, discovery of who He created them to be, and passion for loving others. Both our Sunday School class and Youth Group time are designed to help them begin to take ownership of their faith through these three basic truths:

  • I will love God because He will never stop loving me.
  • I will follow Jesus because He knows me better than I know myself.
  • I will live out God’s story so others can know who Jesus is.
Blaze (8th - 12th grade)

We believe this generation is unique. There are lots of things competing for their attention. Through both Sunday School and Youth Group, our Blaze program helps high schoolers grow and mature in their faith. Through Biblical teaching, games, and peer interaction, your high schoolers will learn these three basic truths:

  • I’m created to pursue a relationship with my creator.
  • I trust what Jesus did to transform who I need to become.
  • I exist to demonstrate God’s love to those around me.

Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
