KIDS ARE FIRST AT SECOND!

We believe this to be true.  Everything we do flows out of this conviction:  loving kids = loving Jesus.  To love Jesus means to love kids like Jesus.  At Second we have embraced this value and work hard at creating safe, inviting, encouraging, and fun environments and venues for children, parents, and families.  We want every child to know God as his/her creator, friend, and Lord of his/her life.

SAFETY

Your child’s safety is our top priority.  In today’s world, we know that a secure environment is crucial.  That is why our Children's Wing door remains locked and each family receives a 5-digit code to gain entry to the Children’s Wing.  In addition, leaders are trained in first aid and emergency procedures.

TRUTH

Our curriculum, activities, and special events are all designed with one sole purpose.  Our desire is to lead children to a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.  Therefore, everything that we teach is based on Biblical truth.

We want every preschool child to know these truths:

  • God made me.
  • God loves me.
  • Jesus wants to be my friend.

As they grow into their school years, we want every child to know:

  • I need to make the wise choice.
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
  • I can trust God no matter what.

FUN & RELEVANT

Children learn best in an environment that suits their needs and interests.  That is why we take a creative approach to Children’s Ministry.  We communicate God’s story through interactive lessons, live Biblical presentations, and engaging worship.
