Helping parents to raise strong, spiritually focused kids.

A church of their very own

At Living Word your kids will experience a three-pronged approach as we share with them God’s Word, help them discover their spiritual gifts, and create an atmosphere of fun in which they will flourish.


We take John 21:15 to heart where Jesus directs Peter to feed His lambs, as we make sure the Word of God is ministered to your children in creative, fun, and exciting ways, feeding their spirit and helping them grow in God.


Our kids environments are a terrific place for your children to explore and discover their spiritual gifts. We provide a variety of opportunities for them to get involved in ministry.


If church is not fun, they will not want to come back…so we make sure church is a blast! Large ministry time has great music and interactive teaching as well as small group discussions that provide a great place to build friendships and challenge your children to delve deeper into the Word.

Youth Ministry

From the time your teenager set foot in the door, they will find themselves in a dynamic environment where they can let down their guard and know that they’re in a place where there’s no judgment and they can be themselves.
