The Boro Children's Ministry: Birth - Grade 6

We regard ministry to children as an entrustment and partnership between the church and home. Parents are the primary influence in their children’s lives, and our Children’s Ministry exists to come alongside parents in their child’s spiritual growth. As kids grow, their understanding of foundational truths grows with them. We offer small groups based on age ranges that follow how God designed children to learn. Our aim is that every child will come to know God, trust Him and obey His commands.

General Information

There are two entrances for our children’s ministry:
  • enter the front entrance of the building and head to the back of the lobby where you’ll see “The Boro” written on the wall
  • enter the side entrance to the left of the building which leads directly into the children’s ministry check-in

Our greeters will be on hand to get you registered with our children’s check-in system.

When you and your family arrive, our “Boro” greeters will walk you through a simple check-in process where your children will receive a name tag, and you will receive a matching numbered tag. Present this tag at check-out when picking up your child/children. 

Although the check-in process isn’t difficult, we do recommend coming about ten minutes early to give you plenty of time to get your children to their classes and allow you to get to the worship service on time.

Yes! The Boro is a safe, loving environment. Each volunteer goes through a training process which includes a background check. We have Safety volunteers stationed at our entrances and exits, ensuring that only those with a parent security tag enter the Boro area.

You will be notified by your check-in security code projected along the base of the large screen located at the front of the auditorium.

All children are welcome in the Boro! If your child has a special need, please reach out to our Children’s Ministry Pastor, Melissa Riggs, who will work with you and your family to ensure that you and your child have a positive experience.

Your child begins each Sunday in his or her classroom, where small group leaders introduce the lesson. At a designated time during the service, children ages three and older walk with their classes to a large group room called The Refuge to attend Power Up. In Power Up, students participate in worship through music and listen to the Bible story lesson. After this large group time, children return to their classrooms for small group discussion and age-appropriate activities that help enforce the Biblical truths they have been taught. All children are picked up and dropped off in their regular classrooms each week. 

Yes, we offer a sixth grade class (Fellowship Sixth Grade, or FSG) at the 11:00 service from September until May. Let by a mentor couple, this small group participates in discussions that bring the Gospel into every part of life while navigating the unique struggles of being a pre-teen. Our students begin attending FSM (Fellowship Student Ministry) in seventh grade.
