At Maranatha our goal is to make this your child’s favorite hour of the week. With trained volunteers, high energy music, fun games, and interactive teaching we seek to communicate the love of God and the story of Jesus to your children in a way that is relevant and keeps their attention.



 While you are in service on Sundays at 10am and Wednesdays at 6:30 pm, your kids will be attending a service that is designed specifically for them. They will check in to their classes in the foyer near the coffee shop & then head to their classes in the nursery (infant to preschool) or to the gym (K-6th grade) for a great service planned just for them!

At Vortex Children’s Ministry

In November, our series for Sunday Mornings will be “Thankful Hearts.” We will be discussing how we should be thankful for what God has blessed us with and we will also talk about ways we can bless others. The kids will also have the opportunity to bring food items in for our Service of Hope.

Wednesdays in November will also be an opportunity to give back to the community. We will start making ornaments to share with the local nursing home and will talk about loving our neighbors. Wednesdays are filled with fun, crafts, activities, and kids are able to build deeper connections with each other and Jesus.

Look ahead At Vortex Children’s Ministry

December will take us back in time! On Sunday mornings we will travel back over 2000 years “Back to the Manger.” We will be discussing the birth of Christ and why His life is still important to us today. Our kids will see the real meaning of Christmas with these powerful Christmas Devotions

Vortex Wednesdays in December will sure be a wonderful time as we talk about “Christmas Joy”! We will continue to make ornaments to share to those at Imboden Nursing Home. 

On Wednesday, December 18th, we will take a trip to Imboden Nursing Home to pass out the ornaments and sing Christmas Carols! Parens are welcome to join us on the joyous evening as we share the true meaning of Christmas with others in our community!

Our Vortex Christmas Program will be on December 15th at 6 pm in our Maranatha Sanctuary! Kids in the program will need to be here at 5 pm and there are 2 important rehearsals on December 8 from 2-4 pm and December 14 from 10 am to noon.
