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.

All kids need to understand that the God who made the oceans made them. He is working in their lives to bring about good things, not just in them, but through them for others. Where there is sadness, they can make waves of joy. Where there is indifference, they can show love. When others are selfish, their humility can have a constructive ripple effect on the people around them.
