Family Ministry

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
Deuteronomy 6:5-9

God created the family before He created the Church, and we believe it is our duty to partner with families to foster spiritual growth for all ages! Smoky Mountain Kidz exists to do just that, to partner with parents and grandparents to help their children become fully devoted followers of Jesus!  To help achieve this end, we have designed services just for kidz that helps them to grow in relationship with God and other children.  Community is important, and it’s vital that we surround our kidz with love and support every step on the way.  We will do our best to communicate with you exactly what we teach your child and provide you with tools to help continue the discussion at home.  It takes a village to raise a child, and we are grateful you chose us to be part of your village.  Together we can help our children become spiritual champions!

Nursery:

Our fully-staffed nursery is open to care for your infant during both services each Sunday.   Our nursery workers will show your baby Christ’s love in a safe and secure environment while you enjoy worship.  They will sing, play, and treat your child with care and respect.  Please provide us with any changing supplies and dietary needs your child may have.

Preschool:

Preschool is an exciting time in a child’s life, and we take full advantage of their awe and wonder each week.  Our goal is to spark a relationship of wonder between your child and the God that created everything!  We use videos, music, crafts and guided play to help your child begin to discover how great our God is and how much He loves them!

Elementary

Elementary is where we begin to raise the standard by teaching children what it looks like to follow God in their daily lives.  We continue to reinforce the foundational teaching provided in preschool while introducing real-life application.  We use ELEVATE video curriculum, music and a variety of other mediums and methods to help your children connect with the love of God.  But we don’t stop there!  We also encourage them to live out that love by loving people, and challenge them to do so at home, in school, on the bus, and everywhere else! This is a critical step in their spiritual development and we are excited to help you in this process!

Youth

Middle and High Schoolers are great, and if you happen to be one, than this is the place for you!  Our small group service meets in the Youth Annex at 9 am on Sunday mornings.  Each week we tackle some of the confusing and important topics of life as we dive into the Word of God. We’re also sure to have plenty of fun along the way, in our goal to become fully devoted, life-long followers of Jesus Christ!
