Children Matter

Divider text here
ThornCreek Children’s Ministry strives to partner with families to raise children in the Way of Jesus. We believe your children are people who can make a difference in the world TODAY, not just in the future! It’s our goal for children to be transformed by the love of God, to grow in their walk with God, surrender their lives to God, and be a light in the world for others to know God in the same way.

Safety & Classes


Divider text here
We take special measures to take care of the children entrusted in our care. Every volunteer goes through safety training and has passed a background check. We lock our classrooms and have security measures in place in case of emergency.
Opens: 15mins before service Closes: 15mins after service We require every child who attends church to be checked in and wear a name tag. Name tags are printed each week. Parents will receive a corresponding tag to pick up their kids and are required to turn it in and match when they pick up their children.
Please inform us of allergies or health issues your child may have to help us keep your child safe and know how to help them. (Our Nursery, Toddler, and PreK classes normally have Animal Crackers for snack. The Elementary Class will occasionally get candy, but children can only eat it with a parent/guardian’s permission. Tweens are served donuts.)
If your child has experienced fever, vomiting, or diarrhea in the last 24 hours; or if your child has something that could possibly be contagious, we kindly ask that you don’t check your child into his/her class. Thank you so much for understanding.

Please bring a diaper bag with supplies your child may need while he/she is at church. Include diaper changing supplies, snacks/drinks, and an extra change of clothes. We want to help keep your child clean and comfortable. We have Animal Crackers for snack if you don’t bring one for your child.

TruBlessings, TruWonder, TruStory

Tru Curriculum goes through the Bible in one year, telling “The Big God Story” in age appropriate ways. Children are invited into the story to experience it in a variety of ways and discover who God is and how they fit into God’s plan!


Connect Curriculum explores the themes found throughout the Bible’s greatest stories & encourages pre-teens to see the narrative arc of the Bible—from Creation to New Creation. It helps them make sense of the Bible, encourages questions, helps make connections, & reflects... all while having fun and eating donuts!

Weekly Family Devotional

Every Monday we e-mail parents a family devotional to do during the week. It covers the lesson we are teaching that coming weekend, so parents get to be the first teacher! If you are not receiving these e-mails, please email Pastor Grace and ask to be added to the list.
