Children’s Ministry

Serving infants through 5th Grade

Our classes are offered at all of our services on the Vista Campus except for the Sunday Early Bird Café Service at 7:30am. Caring teachers are trained to share spiritual truth and the love of Jesus in a warm and friendly environment, specifically designed for each age level. All volunteers are given background checks and receive excellent training.



Little Coasters Ministry is a ministry devoted to children from
infant to pre-kindergarten and is divided into eight age programs: Cuddlers (0-9 mos), Crawlers (10-18 mos), Climbers (19-24 mos), 2’s, 3’s, and Pre-K (4’s). We minister to over 500 children every weekend at the Vista campus alone! Note that Little Coasters is available for all services on the Vista Campus except for the Sunday Early Bird Café at 7:30am.

Coast Kids is our ministry to K-5th grade. We welcome around 600 kids every weekend on our main campus! Each of our 4 classrooms has their own awesome singing time, as well as exciting Bible teaching, and then a small group time with an emphasis on making the Biblical truths connect with their young lives. And of course, kids have tons of fun hanging out with friends and caring leaders. Bring your Bibles, your friends and join us!

Note that Coast Kids is not open for the Sunday Early Bird Café at 7:30am. But it is available for all other services Saturday and Sunday.

The 4th and 5th grade class also provides occasional events throughout the year, including a week of summer camp for incoming 5th graders!

During the weekend services, we welcome children/students with Autism, Asperger’s, Down’s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and ADHD. This program currently focuses on infants through high school. Children/students are placed in an age or developmental appropriate mainstream classroom with a volunteer during the church service.
