About TCN Kids Ministries

Our beloved children are the future of our church, locally and as part of Christ’s worldwide family. We are dedicated to providing educational, nurturing and just plain fun opportunities in which our children can participate, such as childcare and Sunday School-type classes, family movie nights, special holiday events and programs throughout the year. There are summer play dates, sleepovers, service projects and meals together. Events are often geared to specific age groups. Our mission is to complement parents’ efforts to raise children in a loving, Christ-centered atmosphere, with benefits that we hope will last a lifetime.

TCN Kids Ministries mission statement

Connecting a new generation with Jesus Christ – giving children hope, wholeness and opportunities for worship and ministry.
