It is our desire that your family’s experience at Impact is a happy one for you and your child. We assure you that your child will receive the best care as you attend adult worship.
On your first visit, it is required to check in at our Kid’s security in the foyer where you will be informed of our check-in/out policies. Preschoolers sit with their parents until dismissal, while children K-5th sit with their class in the sanctuary joining the rest of the church body for worship. Children are dismissed and head upstairs to their classrooms for their age appropriate teaching time where teachers teach First Look and 252 Basics Orange Curriculum. Our preschoolers learn Bible stories while learning the basic truths that God made them, God loves them, and God wants to be their friend forever. Our K-2nd and 3rd-5th grade classes build on those basic truths digging deeper into scripture and learning lessons based around the truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52: I need to make the wise choice, I can trust God no matter what, and I need to treat others the way I want to be treated. It is our desire that by joining with parents spiritual guidance at home, our kids of Impact will build a strong foundation on the Word of God.

Family Life Ministries

Marriages With Impact (MWI) is our new marriage ministry at Impact. Wait! Shouldn’t it be Marriages OF Impact? Well, maybe . . . but we want it to be more. This ministry is designed to support, strengthen, and equip our marriages so that we can make an impact in our families, church, and community!  We will have individual date nights and M.I.A. Large Group Dates. As the ministry develops we plan to add small group marriage studies and a newsletter.  We are calling our group date nights Marriages In Action because “Sorry, kids, jobs, and other responsibilities! We will be MIA (Missing In Action). We will be with our other married friends laughing and eating and laughing and playing and laughing !  So, watch for announcements about MWI events, check out our Facebook page, and sign up to receive the newsletter.
