Vacation Bible School

We offer Vacation Bible School each summer at each of our campuses! 

Are you looking for some Space this summer? Keep an eye out for our VBS Registration! Save the date: Escondido VBS is June 26th-30th 9-12a. We will be launching on a cosmic adventure, shining Jesus' light to the world with our Stellar VBS! (For preschoolers-5th grade!)

We are offering another VBS you've been begging for! Pets Unleashed VBS will be a wonderful weekend as we learn together about how God cares for us! Keep an eye out for this Registration! Save the Date: San Marcos VBS is August 4th, 5th, and 6th! (For preschoolers-5th grade!)

Contact our Director of Youth and Care Ministries, Rachel Bahn, for more information.


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 child is with their baptism

Sunday School - Activity Packets

Escondido Campus 9:15 AM | San Marcos Campus 10:45 AM

We offer Activity Packets for our Sunday School-aged children at both campuses. On the first Sunday of every month, the group will meet with a teacher and go through the packet together as a class. Throughout the month, the children are encouraged to read the lesson book, Growing in Faith Bible Storybook, answer the questions, fill out the coloring sheet and activity, then turn it in and earn a Sunday School treat party! Once our Sunday School jar is full, the next first Sunday will be filled with a sweet treat!

Middle School and High Schoolers are welcome to join the Adult Bible Class at either campus as we walk through various books of the bible or topics!

Children's Choir

We love having children sing in our worship services! Children ages four through fifth grade rehearse on Wednesdays at 4:30 PM at our Escondido campus. The choir sings twice a month in the church services! Please contact our Music Director, Jeff Johnson

God Squad / God Squad Jr.

God Squad is offered weekly on Wednesday nights from 5:30-7p at our Escondido Campus. We have an evening of games, dinner, and devotions for our three age groups, Preschool-2nd grade, 3rd-5th grade, and 6th-8th. God Squad runs from September through May.

Reach out to our DCE, Rachel Bahn to get more information and know which dates we do not meet!
