There is so much for children (newborn through 5th grade) with Forcey Kids, including Sunday School during both morning services, TeamKID on Wednesday evenings, and Christian Service Brigade for boys on Thursday evenings. The goal of Forcey Kids is to partner with parents to nurture children’s faith in Jesus Christ.
Forcey Kids equips and encourages 0-12 years-old in their relationship with Jesus by:
- faithfully and energetically teaching the Bible
- surrounding children with godly adult role models who will care for them and challenge their faith and life growth
- providing high-energy activities and fun gatherings which help break down social walls and foster friendships
- training children to share the life-changing message of Jesus Christ and make an impact for God in this world
Each program has trained, on-site leaders to supervise and ensure that students are safe and secure. All volunteers go through a Health & Safety Class which features basic health, safety, best practice teaching, and security training.
We have many different programs for children:Download Guide

Children’s Sunday School
During each Sunday morning service, Forcey has a full program of Bible instruction, fellowship and fun for children, in a safe and loving environment. Our dedicated staff members desire to help nurture your child to become a devoted follower of Jesus Christ.
Children are checked in and out of Sunday School using Check-Ins by Planning Center. It will take a couple extra minutes to add your child’s information on their first visit but it will be very streamlined when they return. Our friendly staff will assist in making the process fast and easy when you arrive!
TeamKID is our mid-week children’s ministry for Pre-K 4’s through 6th graders. We meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00pm. Parents and older siblings are encouraged to participate in our meetings too. Childcare will be provided for younger siblings to allow parents the ability to participate.
TeamKID is a fun ministry that encourages kids to know Jesus Christ and grown in a relationship with Him. Every part of TeamKID – Bible stories, Bible verses, life application, missions, and recreation – all connect to teach life lessons to kids. TeamKID is designed so children learn biblical principles and develop skills that will help them grow closer to God.
Christian Service Brigade (555)
Christian Service Brigade is not a kid’s club. It’s a multi-year discipleship program designed to give a boy everything he needs to be a man of God. He’ll learn real world skills as well as spiritual ones that he can apply throughout is entire life.
Boys are divided into age groups: Tree Climbers (Kindergarten – 2nd grade), Stockade (3rd-6th grades), and Battalion (7th-12th grades).
“For every physical lesson, there is a parallel spiritual truth.”
