Children and their families are special to God. At Central, we desire to join parents on their life’s journey of sharing God’s love with their family. Our Children’s Ministries includes programs for kids all of ages.
Central’s preschooler ministry includes children from birth to kindergarten. Preschoolers are special in that they develop their faith in Jesus through learning to trust the people around them. Our teachers and volunteers have passed background checks. They also seek to create a safe, trusting environment that teaches about God’s love for our children. Preschoolers are provided the opportunity to learn through age-appropriate methods. Central’s preschool ministry provides a variety of programs that assist parents in laying the foundation for a relationship with Jesus.
Central Kids Ministry
Our Central Kids ministry is for children in grades 1st – 6th. We provide enriching time of learning and activities that helps build on their foundation of faith. All volunteers and teachers have passed background checks and gone through training. We teach all children to learn scripture, to grow their Bible knowledge, and learn more about church work and missions. It is our desire that children enter into a lasting relationship with Jesus and that they understand their vital role in the church.

Pre-Teen Camp 2022
3rd-6th graders head to Mt. Lebanon in Cedar Hill, TX for a week of worship, growth, and fun! Camp dates are June 27th through July 1st. Registration for Pre-teen camp is now closed as all spots have been filled. If you missed out this year, be sure to be first in line to register for 2023!
Each summer, we invite all completed Pre-K through 6th graders to join us for VBS. This year we explored Spark Studios each day from 8:30 am-12 pm. Our theme was Created in Christ. Designed for God’s Purpose. Kids learned that God’s creativity didn’t stop in Genesis. The Master Artist is working to redeem, reclaim and transform us – His creation – to the design He planned for us. Kids had fun while learning that we are His workmanship (Eph. 2:10) and a masterpiece in process. There’s no better way to kick off the summer! If you missed this year’s VBS, make plans to register next summer!
