4 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT CREATE KIDS
1) KIDS ARE THE CHURCH OF TODAY, NOT TOMORROW
Kids are involved in a portion of all meetings. They grow by worshipping God and serving their community with family and friends.
2) IT'S NOT DAY CARE, SCHOOL, OR A SHOW
Our goal is different, and our strategy is different. The goal is character growth, and the strategy is relationship.
Kids (and all the rest of us for that matter) learn character from people, not a presentation. So, we prioritize the forming of friendships between adults and kids, forged through guided activities that promote interaction and create teachable moments. Our trained and background-checked adults lovingly coach kids using relational methods – with the goal of us all becoming more like Jesus.

3) PARENTS, WE've got YOUR BACK
All parents wish they were fail-proof in raising amazing kids. But it also takes a village, right? So while we do have nursery and a rockin' kid's time during our meetings, we also know that plug-and-play programming is not how we raise kids who love other and love God.
It's much easier to teach your kids important things when you are doing important things with them. And, it's easier to do those important things when we all step out and serve together.
4) TEENS MAKING A DIFFERENCE
We have a special heart for young people, and we've had enough of seeing students graduate high school and promptly leave the church. Only 4% of people under age 35 are part of a church each week.
Our teens are making the world a better place. We encourage them to use their passion to serve boldly and experiment in ways to serve God. We believe teens are ministers. Teens are getting their socks blown off by God as they contribute and begin to become who God designed them to be.
