"From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise..." - Psalm 8:2


Vacation Bible School

When summer time rolls around, kids look forward to Vacation Bible School, a week-long camp for families. We come together around a fun theme with Bible stories, Bible character buddies, crafts, and games. Kids fall in love with the the catchy tunes about Jesus' love and are challenged with Bible memory verses. VBS creates life-long memories for children and relationships that stay with them through the school year.

The Escondido 2022 VBS took place at the end of June and San Marcos 2022 VBS took place the beginning of August.  Check out some pictures of it on our Facebook page.

We believe that God gifts little ones with faith before they are even old enough to express it for themselves! Jesus commands us to be baptized, and this is where babies receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The first place to start with the Faith Formation of your children is with their baptism

Babies and Toddlers 

Our 0-2 Sunday School classes use interactive play, music, and simple story-telling to encourage trust in Jesus. At a young age, babies and toddlers are able to grasp basic yet profound truths such as God made me, Jesus loves me, Jesus is my best friend, Jesus knows me, and Jesus hears me. 


Preschool-age children are at a perfect time in their lives to learn the building blocks of our faith! On Sunday mornings, our preschool Sunday School classes learn key stories from the Bible. 


As children learn to read and write, it opens doors for further exploration of God's Word! On Sunday mornings, children in Sunday School are divided into developmentally appropriate classes where Bibles are used for learning and growing in the faith.

Children's Choir

We love having children sing in our worship services! Children at our San Marcos campus rehearse on Sunday mornings at the beginning of Sunday School at 10:45 AM. Children ages four through fifth grade rehearse on Wednesdays at 4:30 PM at our Escondido campus. 

God Squad

On Wednesday nights during the school year, kids in third through fifth grade participate in God Squad, an evening program at our Escondido campus that consists of game time, dinner and devotions.  This time bonds the kids together in friendship and gives them time to learn about Jesus in a fun, relaxed environment. God Squad runs from September through May. It resumes in 2022 on September 14. Contact Pastor Bob for more information. 


For additional Christian education, we offer a full-time preschool during the week! Children ages 2-5 are nurtured in a Christ-centered environment with opportunities to develop spiritually, physically, socially and intellectually. Visit our preschool page for more information.
