At Intrepid, we are committed to helping families guide their children in learning about God, how much He loves us, and all the wonderful things He does for us. We provide a safe place for kids to come and learn about God's love for them, and how they can love others around them. We're excited to see you on Sunday!

Nursery

Each Sunday morning, Intrepid provides a safe space for children from birth to three years old in our Nursery. This not only allows Mom & Dad to enjoy our weekly services without interruption, but also allows some wonderful Intrepid teachers and volunteers show babies and toddlers how much God loves them. We play, sing songs, have snacks, and start to introduce to little ones to the fact that they are made by God and loved by Him.

Preschool

Once kids are three years old and potty trained, they are welcome to join our Preschool class for children from three to five years old (prior to Kindergarten). In this class, children will get to know Topher the Gopher, who helps kids journey through the Bible in a way that is built just for them. Our Preschool curriculum is chock-full of high quality, age appropriate, faith forming fun that helps young kids discover the never ending love of  Jesus.

KINDERGARTEN-5th grade

From Kindergarten through 5th grade, Intrepid Kids are currently going through the Bible chronologically and seeing how they can be a part of God's story. Our amazing Intrepid Kids volunteers present the good news of Jesus, help kids understand the character and nature of God, and teach biblical truth with real world application. 

 

Kids in Kindergarten through 5th grade can expect to not only have a fun time with friends playing games, singing songs, and watching cool videos, but they'll also grow in their relationship with Jesus each week as they experience God's love in fun and exciting ways.
