Welcome to The Reef!

We love kids! We especially love teaching kids about a God who loves them. The REEF is a place where kids encounter the radical and life changing nature of God’s Love!

Each age group has age appropriate lessons, worship and activities.  The hope is for kids to understand who God is, grow closer to Him, learn stories from the Bible, and have a ton of fun while they are at it.

Programming is available during all services.  Check in starts 15 minutes before each service.  The Reef has every child check in at the Welcome Counter.

Everyone is welcome – no pre-registration or membership needed.

Birth through Kindergarten

Birth – Age 2

Your children are very special to you, they are special to us and they are special to Jesus too!  We believe that the truth of God’s love is reinforced by providing gentle, loving care for your child.  So, at this stage, children have a safe and caring environment.  There are plenty of age appropriate toys and activities.


Preschool through Kindergarten

PreK & K Classes use a curriculum called “First Look”.  First Look helps a child by age 5 to believe that….

God Made Me  |  God Loves Me  |  Jesus Wants to be My Friend Forever


In August, PreK & K will focus on:

Memory Verse:  “You have done great and wonderful things.” 2 Samuel 7:23

Bottom Line: God made everything wonderful







Grades 1-4

Our programming includes story time, dramas, small group time, games, crafts, and worship.

The curriculum we use is 252 Basics which provides us with a different virtue each month.  We unpack the virtue all month long.

Bring your kids for a high energy, fun, and God filled morning.
