Welcome to Branches Kid’s Ministry

Our staff, leadership and teams of weekly volunteers have one simple mission and it’s this:

To ‘suit up and show up’ each week so that every child who walks through the doors of a Branches event would have the opportunity to experience His amazing and life changing love.  We believe that if we are obedient to follow our calling to serve His children, He will be faithful to show up and shine His light through each of us.  We believe that every child should have a place to go outside of their home where they feel welcomed, appreciated and celebrated for exactly who God has created them to be.  But, our greater hope is that we can walk hand in hand with parents as they lead their families to His higher ground.

We hope you will join us either on a Sunday or at one of our events sometime soon!

Sunday Mornings in Kid’s Ministry

Location:  The Upstairs Pilot Room

Morning Flow:  Babies and toddlers spend time playing with toys, interacting with one another, as well as listening to music.  Throughout the morning, our amazing leaders not only love on your kids with hugs and play time, they spend time praying over each one of them.  Kids enjoy a Gluten Free snack option about hald way through service.


Ages:  3-5 years

Location:  The Boat House – Class #2

Morning Flow:  Preschoolers enjoy pre class centers focused on coloring, reading, building blocks and legos, all of which allow them to interact and develop friendships with other kids at church.  Preschools are taught a Bible lesson as well as sing songs, play games and assemble crafts, all of which reinforce the lesson taught.

Early Elementary

Grades:  Kinder – 2nd

Location:  The Boat House

Morning Flow:  Our K-2 Graders move from pre class coloring and group games, into live music and lesson, followed by craft.  After craft, this group is split, at which point K-1st Graders enjoy carpet talk and coloring and 2nd Graders play an additional game to reinforce memory verses and lesson.  K-2nd Graders remain in the Main Room of the Boat House for the duration of the service.

Older Elementary

Grades: 3rd – 5th

Location:  Boat House Main Room & Boat House Courtyard

Morning Flow:  3rd – 5th Graders begin the morning with a group game in the courtyard of the boat house.  They transition into the Main Room of the Boat House to enjoy live music and lesson with all kids K-5th.  After the lesson is complete, they move back outside to the courtyard for small group discussion and an activity to reinforce the lesson.

 Elementary Small Groups

Dangerous Boys Club:

This club is intended for boys grades K-5th grade and their dads/mentors to come together to experience, teach and learn all things boys need to know as they grow into young men for Christ.

The next Dangerous Boys Session is called “Jesus – The Carpenter.”  During this series, the boys will learn about Jesus the Carpenter as they learn about tools and build projects together over a 3 week session.  Meeting times and dates for this session are 6:00-7:30 on March 8th, 22nd and April 5th.  Check the Calendar on the website for location information for each meetup location.

Brave Girls Crews:

Our Girls Small Groups for our K – 5th grade aged girls are broken into two groups, K-2nd Graders and 3rd-5th Graders.  This group was established primarily to teach the love of Christ to our girls and to give them a safe space to belong, feel, share and grow in relationships with one another.  We hope you will join us for a meeting soon!

Brave Girls Meet Wednesdays from 6:00-7:30 and groups alternate weeks, each age group meeting twice per month.  Check the Calendar on the website for location information for each meetup location.
