Kids' Ministries

Messages – Watch and Listen

The Problem of Worry

Today we conclude our Family Moments series with practical instruction for dads and all parents. Pastor Dan challenges us today to take a hard look at “The Problem of Worry” as we study Matthew 6:19-34 and read Jesus’ instruction on this topic.

Bring Them Up in the Way of the Lord

Today Ben Soffel, Pastor of Student & Young Adults, continues our “Family Moments” series in Part 5, “Bring Them Up in the Way of the Lord,” delving into the topic of Christian parenting. We’ll examine Ephesians 5-6 together consider some of the cultural challenges in raising kids today, and learn what it means to bring our children up “in the training and instruction of the Lord.” (Eph. 6:4)


We’re continuing this morning with Part 4 of our series on “Family Matters.” A sometimes-overlooked topic related to this theme is that of singleness – overlooked, that is, by the church, but not by Scripture. What does God’s Word tell us about being single? Pastor Steve leads a panel discussion with Patty Bennett, Michele Harms, Scott Johnson, Hunter Reiff, and Kara Erickson.
