Here at Tates Creek, our goal is to help raise a generation that loves Jesus and has a great understanding of the Bible and what it means to be a Christian. It is our hope that kids will spend time with God, spend time with others, use their gifts, and share their story with others. We want to open the doors for families to attend church and grow in Christ together.

fun & safe environments

Children ages nursery-5th grade will meet in the Tates Creek Kid's House located on the 2nd floor of the church down the hall from the Worship Center. Students will start at the Front Porch for check-in and will then go to their assigned classroom areas where they will meet their awesome TC Kids House leaders! 

We create safe environments parents can trust. All of our volunteers have gone through a thorough screening process with a background check and an interview.


Every week in Children’s Ministry we craft teaching and worship to bring the Bible to life in a way kids will understand and engage with. We want our kids to know and follow Jesus, and the best place to start is by helping them understand what the Bible has to say. We also staff our rooms with leaders who love Jesus and will help your kids discover what it means to live out God’s Word every day.
