    How do I register my child? Fill out this form.

    How much does it cost? It's free! We will offer the livestream experience, a family or small group outline, crafts, and game ideas for free.

    What kind of curriculum guides Focus Take a Closer LookWe are excited to help kids dive deeper into their faith by putting the FOCUS on God and his amazing plan for us.

    Your preschoolers through preteens will have a blast as they discover how to trust in what they CAN’T see because of what they CAN see.

    Our virtual and family/small group experiences are designed to teach kids to explore four different ways we can FOCUS on God. Each day, we will introduce a Bible story from the book of Matthew and Big Idea that reinforces the following actions in our faith journeys: HEAR - TALK - PRAY - LIVE.

    Our guiding verse for the week is: "Let us keep looking to Jesus. He is the one who started this journey of faith. And He is the one who completes the journey of faith.” — Hebrews 12:2a, NIrV
