About Us

illuminate kids exists to help children discover who God is and who He has created them to be! illuminate kids provides a loving, safe, and fun environment where children can learn and grow in their faith.

When do we meet?

illuminate kids meets every Sunday. Doors open at 9:40.

What do we do?

illuminate kids serves children from birth – 5th grade. Our school-aged children use 252 Basics curriculum. Through this curriculum, children are taught three basic truths, taken from Luke 2:52:

  1. I need to make the wise choice (wisdom)

  2. I can trust God no matter what (faith)

  3. I should treat others the way I want to be treated (friendship)

Babies and Pre-K

Our Babies – Preschool age kids use First Look curriculum. Through age appropriate activities, preschoolers are building their spiritual foundation so that by the time they graduate to Kindergarten they know these three basic truths:

  1. God Made Me

  2. God Loves Me

  3. Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever

Each week at illuminate kids, children will be presented with an engaging and relevant lesson that teaches from these truths. They will also experience dynamic worship, exciting games, and plenty of opportunities to build relationships.


Groups are a part of our Sunday Service. Our kids will come together by grades and will grow deeper with the biblical teaching they learned earlier in the morning. They are then given a God Time Card, where the parents and their children are able to discuss what they learned on Sunday all throughout the week. Listed below, are how we assign the children to their group.

  • Babies (Birth – 23 months)

  • Toddlers (2-3 years old)

  • Preschool (4-5 years old)

  • Elementary (Kindergarten - 5th Grade)

  • K-1st Grade small group

  • 2nd-3rd Grade small group

  • 4th-5th Grade small group

Frequently Asked Questions

Will My Child Be Safe?

Safety is our top priority at illuminate kids. All of our volunteers undergo background checks and training, and our check-in system ensures that only authorized adults can pick up a child. Your child will be safe and well cared for while at illuminate kids!

Can I Stay With My Child During Service?

In order to maintain the safety and integrity of our ministry, our policy is to allow only background- checked adults to stay in the cafeteria with the children once service starts. If you are needed at any time during the service, the number on the Parent Receipt that you receive at check-in will appear on the screen in the main auditorium.

Can My Child Attend If They Are Sick?

Please refer to our Wellness Policy

Does My Child Need To Bring Anything On Sunday Mornings?

If your child is still in diapers, please provide a diaper bag with diapers and wipes. If your child will need a bottle during service, please provide one for the nursery leaders, who will label the bottle and feed your child based on your instructions. Otherwise, all your child needs to bring on a Sunday morning is a teachable spirit!

Do You Need Volunteers?

Yes! illuminate kids is always growing, and we are always looking for volunteers to join our team. If you are 12 years old (6th grade) or older, we have volunteer opportunities available for you! Please us this link for our volunteer application: ministryopportunities.org/ICCelebration
