Through JUMP Children's Ministries 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. Please contact us to plan your visit!
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!

“JUMPing Frogs” classes allows 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!
Preschoolers attend age-appropriate classes where they are taught by loving, carefully screened teachers. Our preschool ministry team strives to show Christ’s love to each child by creating a safe and caring environment in our classrooms. Currently we are using Hands On Bible and FaithWeaver Now curriculum in our preschool classes.
