About Children

At ENCOUNTER, we love kids! In Kids' Cove, children learn about God's love every week in a dynamic way through music, Bible stories, games, and crafts.
Our staff and volunteers love children and enjoy teaching them about Jesus and what it means to have a relationship with Him. Children of all ages have a special class that’s designed specifically for them. From our Nursery (infant to 2 years), to Early Childhood (3 years to Kindergarten), to Elementary (grades 1 through 5), to more in-depth programs like Lightforce (5th grade boys and girls), and Kids’ Choir (ages 4 through grade 8), we want children to have fun while they learn about God through the Bible, prayer, and friendships. Proverbs 22:6 states,Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

We look forward to meeting you and your children!
