Children’s Ministry (Infant – 5th Grade) 2017-11-16T12:59:08+00:00

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!
