Canvas Kids

At Canvas Kids we have exciting services where children will encounter Jesus Christ through music, videos, stories, and engaging activities. Our classrooms are prepared for the following age groups to ensure a safe and fun atmosphere for children of all ages.

  • Babies: 3 months – 23 months
  • Toddlers: 2 years – 3 years
  • PreK-Kinder: 4 years – 5 years
  • 1st Grade – 5th Grade

We recommend arriving 10 – 15 minutes prior to the worship service in order to check-in your children to the appropriate classroom. Check-in closes 15 minutes after the worship service starts.

We use a secure check-in system that gives each child a unique security number with a corresponding label with matching security number for the parents. You must have this parent label at the time of checkout for security purposes. If for some reason you are needed to attend to your child during the worship service you will receive a text message to the mobile number provided at the time of check-in. 

Check out the Canvas Kids link on the Canvas Newsletter to see upcoming events.

Canvas Youth

Canvas Youth is a community of young men and women striving to become more like Jesus Christ. Our vision is for young people to come in from all walks of life, be radically transformed by the saving power of Jesus Christ in a fun filled atmosphere. The Junior High and High School gather weekly on Wednesdays at 7pm and throughout the year for special events. Junior High also has a class available to them during the 11am service on Sunday morning. The High School students are encouraged to start serving in an area of ministry and attend the main service.
