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!

Welcome Pastor AMy!

Maranatha is so excited to welcome our new children’s pastor, Pastor Amy Douglas! Below Pastor Amy shares with us a little bit of her story and her heart for ministry! Also, we invite you to join us for our children’s services on Sundays at 10 am & Wednesdays at 6:30 pm!

“I’m excited to be here at Maranatha in Decatur to have the pleasure of ministering to your children! My first real encounter with the love of God was at an outreach for children. It was an Easter Egg Hunt and I was 15, that day I found the real love of Jesus and my life has never been the same. I was called into ministry when I was 17, completed Biblical Studies courses through Global University, Berean School of the Bible and have received my Ministry License from the Assemblies of God. and currently taking courses to be ordained. My life purpose is for children & families to have a radical encounter with God; that they will have a real relationship with the King of Kings and have a life completely changed by His amazing power. My goal here at Maranatha is to reach the lost by being a part of this community and raising up disciples for God’s Kingdom. Creating a hunger and thirst for more of God’s Word and His presence.”
