We seek to help our children grow In God. We have a passion for reaching children with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and our teachers are committed to the Word of God and to serving Christ. On this page you'll find everything you need to know about our Children's Ministries. If you do have further questions, feel free to contact our Children's Pastor, Dan Druyor (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We strive to create a safe and loving environment for all children. All children's ministry volunteers are pre-screened through a Volunteer Application and national, criminal background check. If you would like to volunteer to help in our Children's ministries, we'd love to have you.
Volunteering to help at Desert Springs begins with picking up an application at either of our welcome centers. Grab one and start your path toward serving in Children's ministry this weekend!
For the parents of our children with special needs:
We would consider it a privilege to partner with your child during Sunday services to ensure (s)he has a meaningful experience with us. Our Special Needs "buddies" will sit with and minister to your child in an appropriate age class or in a more quiet environment while you relax and enjoy worship service.
NOTE: We ask that you contact our Children's Ministry Department prior to visiting our church to enable us to plan adequately for your child's needs. Thank you so much!
We offer what your child may need to be comfortable and nurtured. Our children in the nursery have a specially designed curriculum that helps them begin to learn about God and His creation. It is entitled "God Made…” and covers multiple topics like "God Made the World", "God Made Me", and many more. The lessons include many activities including crafts, stories, songs, and other activities.
Nursery is available at all of our weekend services for babies 8 weeks to 24 months including:
age-appropriate toys and play areas
a loving, carefully-screened Volunteer Staff
cribs, swings and a sleeping room
diaper changing facilities
a semi-private nursing mothers area
Our preschool classes allow preschoolers to learn about Christ’s love for them by hearing God’s Word presented in fun and engaging ways. Each weekend, children hear a Bible story and participate in activities that reinforce the Bible lesson and teach them what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. Our preschoolers love learning about our amazing God through stories, games, crafts, Bible verses, prayer, and worship!
Age-appropriate Preschool classes are offered during our Saturday 5pm and Sunday 9:30 & 11am services. Currently we are using Hands On Bible and FaithWeaver Now curriculum in our preschool classes.
Our Elementary classes allow students to learn about Christ’s love for them by hearing God’s Word presented in fun and engaging ways. Each weekend, students participate in activities that reinforce a Bible lesson and learn how they can grow in their relationship with God as a follower of Jesus Christ. Under the leadership and care of our volunteer team, students encounter our amazing God through stories, games, crafts, Bible verses, prayer, and worship! We hope you’ll join us as we learn, laugh, and make friends each weekend!
