During this phase in our county, Countryside Kids is offering outdoor events for families once every 1-2 months, along with sharing simple things families can do while participating in weekly worship. Sign up to receive our newsletter for weekly Bible story videos. Watch worship for a special children's message that often times includes a Family Faith Moment, which is one simple way families can talk about and grow in your faith together. For more information, check out the links below our mission and values statements!

- Safety: We diligently attend to the physical and emotional safety of all who gather in our church community.
COUNTRYSIDE KIDS SPRING/SUMMER/EARLY FALL UPDATES: We are getting ready for a complete renovation of our education wing along with key gathering areas in our church. We are so excited for these renovations, but it means that much of our inside building will be unusable for the next 5-7 months (beginning in May and lasting possibly into November for some areas of the church). This means that we will not yet be back to hosting our traditional Vacation Bible Camp. We are looking into a possible outdoor, smaller scale option that would gathering in the evenings toward the end of June. Look for more details in early May.
We look forward to easing back into community events and programming in the winter of 2021/22!
