Our ministry to children in grades 1 - 5 is called Elevate Students. We meet in our new Generations Center in Elevate Station, an out-of-this-world space-themed environment. We offer family-centered ministry with biblical values that enable children to discover wisdom, develop faith, and make friendships.


We believe the Bible should never be boring, worship can be really loud, and good leaders always care! Our curriculum is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. Each Sunday, we worship with a student-driven live band. The key Bible theme is introduced in a large group environment and then discussed with leaders in small groups. This makes it easier for kids to understand and apply the principles to their own lives.


Everything we teach in Elevate Students is based on one of three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52. . . . “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and favor with God and man.” 


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


We want kids to understand how God's Word fits in their lives, learn how to talk to Him, and build friendships that will last. That's why it's important to make sure your child connects with the same friends and same leaders at the same hour—EVERY SUNDAY! Consistency is important. Elevate Students happens during the 9:00 and 10:45 AM services and we can’t wait to welcome your children!
