WELCOME TO OUR CHILDREN'S MINISTRY
An African proverb states that it takes an entire village to raise a child. We accept our responsibility as part of that village and do our part to “train up a child in the way they should go”. We act in partnership with God to shape children’s character and empower them to reach their God-given destiny. ImagiNATION Ministry will provide a fun, safe & Christ-focused environment for children to begin to understand Christian fundamentals – like prayer, bible study & worship.
Security is important to us – so we have the full support of our Security Ministry and Child Security volunteers. Dedicated ImagiNATION servants will be there week after week to care for your child at ImagiNATION experiences. We utilize a state-of-the-art check-in system that ensures a safe environment for your child and allows for easy drop-off/pick-up for parents. All ImagiNATION staff and servants are dedicated to fulfilling our mission, which is: "partnering with parents to provide our children with the skills, experiences, and resources that will enable them to grow into the people that God created them to be."
