Our Mission at COTS Kids is to…
Inspire Children to seek God
Encourage Parents to trust God
Assist families in sharing the
Good News of Jesus Christ
We inspire children to seek God by….
Teaching them who God is and helping them to experience His goodness every Sunday!
SUNDAY SCHOOL (9:30 & 11:00 a.m. every week)
Godly Play (Preschool – 1st Grade): The children that attend this class experience God’s word in a unique way. They experience a story and then they are encouraged to internalize that story through imagination and play. A feast at the 11:00 hour gives kids a chance to share their praises or concerns. This is their community and we strive to help each child feel supported and cared for!
Deep Blue (grades 3-5): Diving into God’s Word with stories, science, art, and games. This is how we build relationships with God in Deep Blue Sunday School!
We encourage parents to trust God by….
– Inspirational Newsletters Click here to be added to the monthly Newsletter List! (Pssst…this is also how you stay in the know for all things COTS Kids!)
– Devotions at every event. We love getting together with our COTS Kids community but we also want our families to take a moment to focus on Christ. We encourage this by exemplifying it.
We love for families to get together and have fun, but at ParentConnect events, you, the parent, are our main focus. We desire to build a safe and supportive community where parents can feel empowered by one another. Ultimately, we hope that you see yourself as God sees each of us, a perfect mess! If you would like to join our community, start here!

Family Connection (Formerly known as Kids Club) is your opportunity to meet other families in the COTS Kids community. Once a month, children up through 5th grade and their families are invited to a fun gathering. We discuss a devotion and then enjoy each other’s company. You do not need to be a member of our church family join us and friends are always welcome. We take a break throughout the summer and reconvene in the fall. Family Connection events are announced in our newsletter, in the bulletin board in our Children’s Ministry Wing and at the COTS Kids check-in desk. This is our opportunity to be the church in the community! Be sure to contact us to join the e-mail list!
Breathe is an evening of respite for families of children with special needs. Kids come to a fun fair of activities and quiet spaces. Parents get a night out. Breathe happens three times each year in January, April, and October. Click here for more information on Breathe. This is our opportunity to share the unconditional love of Christ with the children of our community. Jesus loves every child as they are!
This is one of the biggest ways in which COTS Kids interacts with the community. Upward is a basketball league that incorporates spiritual growth into the game of basketball. Contact Jill Barr for more information.
