Welcome to Central Kids
Central Kids Jr. (birth-5 yr. old) and Central Kids (Kindergarten-5th Grade) exists to partner with parents to lead the next generation to know that God loves them, He has a plan for them and to lead them into a relationship with Jesus Christ. We do that through safe, age appropriate environments where kids will experience worship, learning and play.
We would love to see you and your family visit Central Kids. Please follow the link below to register your kids so that we will be ready for your visit.

What is Awana?
Awana is a ministry used to reach kids, equip leaders, and change the world. Central Kids provides Awana Wednesday nights in the school year.

Each month kids will learn about missionaries and how they can be a missionary in their community.

- May 5 - 6pm- Award Show
- Wednesdays, 6:15-8:00pm -September 16, 2020 - May 5, 2021 (no club March 17)
- Ages 2 (by September 1st) up to 5th Grade
Puggles® recognizes the learning ability of 2- and 3-year olds by introducing biblical truth at church and equipping parents to teach them at home.
Cubbies® celebrates the spiritual potential of preschoolers (3- to 5-year olds) by helping them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word.
Sparks® (K-2nd grade) ignites the curiosity of early elementary-age kids to learn about the people and events of the Bible, building a foundation of wisdom for knowing Christ.
