Our Praise Kids Ministry is available on Sunday mornings during the message following the time of worship. It is geared toward kids K thru 4th grade.  As soon as the music is done, one of our children's leaders will take the kids  to the children's area for a special message, snack, and a game that is geared toward them. 

We believe that children are the future, so we also invest in them outside of Sunday mornings.  Keep an eye out for other outings and events throughout the year!

Real life youth

Real Life Youth Group is a place where junior high and high school students from across Coles County come together each week.  You can find them every Tuesday evening at 6pm.  In addition to the Tuesday night gathering, Real Life Youth Group participates in Breakaway Camps each Summer, Momentum Youth Convention in the Fall, and variety of other fun events.

Our nursery is always available if the building is open.  We generally have it staffed during the Sunday morning service, but for safety reasons during the pandemic, it is not currently staffed.  It features a changing table, a variety of toys, kid sized tables/chairs, books, a television, snacks, and more.  We recommend this room for kids birth through Kindergarten, but feel free to use it whenever you and your baby/toddler need it.
