Children's church

Starting to Grow and It’s Grow Time for preschool through elementary age children - 11:15am

Starting to Grow and It’s Grow Time use a three-year, through-the-Bible curriculum. Each year covers a Biblical timeline through the Old Testament and continues on to the New Testament, completing an overview of the entire Bible every three years. The dual purpose of the curriculum is spiritual growth and understanding the Bible timeline with particular attention to the history and thread of redemption throughout the entire Bible.


Families will be asked to Check-in each week at the Children’s Church kiosk located in the main lobby of JIBC.


We encourage families with little ones that are 3 years old (potty trained) through entering Kindergarten to allow their children the opportunity to learn about The Bible and Jesus Christ in an age-appropriate, clean and safe environment each week for a portion of the Sunday morning service.


Children in Kindergarten through 6th grade are invited to learn each week in a setting that is age-appropriate and safe for them.


Core doctrines will be taught, including:

  • The total inspiration of Scripture and that it is TRUTH in its entirety

  • There is only ONE true God ~found in the trinity~ God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit

  • Jesus Christ paid the full penalty for sin through His death, burial and resurrection, and He is the only way to Salvation
