Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 19:14


Jesus knew the value of children. In Karis Church, we want to follow Christ’s example and support families in teaching children about the gospel. Through God-centered, gospel-focused instruction with fun methods, we teach kids about all that Jesus has done. Our aim is to be intentional in helping children grow up knowing that Jesus is the center of everything.

Karis provides care for children who are between three months to 11 years old. Children ages two and up worship corporately with their parents in the Gathering before being dismissed to their classrooms.

Karis Kids utilizes the Gospel Story Curriculum for our Kindergarten through 5th grade classroom and the Jesus Storybook Bible Curriculum in our pre-Kindergarten classroom. Both programs will give your children a big vision of God and consistent exposure to His gospel.


During our 11 am Gathering, these classes will be open:

Raccoon Room: 3 months to 2 years
Fox Room: 2 years to Kindergarten
Bear Room: Kindergarten to 5th grade

During our 9 am Gathering, we offer the following Karis Kids classes:

Deer Room: 3 months to Walking
Raccoon Room: Walking to 2 years
Fox Room: 2 years to Kindergarten
Bear Room: Kindergarten to 5th grade

Volunteers are an integral part of Karis Kids. God is blessing our children's ministry in huge ways. Children are being added to our body every month. We are always looking for caring people to serve our children.
