ANNUAL EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES

Awana

September thru April, Both Campuses

Awana combines fun and games with Bible memory and lessons that help children understand scripture.

Summer Events - Carnival and Waterpark

Two summer events for the whole church. The aim of these events is to bring the whole family together so that we can love, live and serve like Jesus.

Fall Family Festival All Ages

Usually October 31, Shakopee Campus

Skip the fright and spend the night in His light. It’s a celebration with giant bouncers, games, prizes galore, lots of great food, a special glow-in-the-dark room, and of course, lots of candy! There is a small entrance fee.

MOPPETS Newborn – 6 Years

September thru April, Prior Lake Campus

This is a childcare program held specifically for moms who are attending MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers). MOPS is a place for moms to gather for a much needed break – to make new friends and share the joys and struggles of raising kids.

Child Dedication

Quarterly, Both Campuses

A dedication is a covenant by the parents to raise their child in the ways of the Lord until the child is old enough to make his or her own personal commitment. When we choose to have our child dedicated, it gives parents, as well as extended family, friends and the church an opportunity to thank God for the birth of the child.

Parents dedicate their children back to God, asking for His blessing. They promise to nurture their children in a Christian home and environment, and are challenged to guide and teach their children in spiritual development. There is no water involved, and the child is not automatically saved, or in the faith, because of the ceremony. Faith is passed on to our children by helping them develop their own personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

You can view our events page to find upcoming child dedication dates.
