From six weeks to five years of age, our Nursery and Preschool Ministry serves to care for your infants and toddlers during services in a safe and nurturing environment. Our nursery is arranged according to developmental stages rather than age groups, with each environment designed to meet your baby’s needs. Our preschool rooms are fun and exciting atmospheres, where your kids will learn, create, and worship together. For more information, visit our Nursery/Preschool page.
Our Celebration Kids ministry serves K-5th grade students. During our weekend services, kids get to experience their very own service with worship, a message, and breakout groups in a safe, friendly and enjoyable atmosphere. Our leaders serve to ensure your kids encounter God, have fun, and feel loved. For more information, visit our Celebration Kids page.
Through our weekly FUSE Services, middle and high school students are discipled in God’s Word, and empowered to spread the Gospel in every sphere of their life. Our weekly FUSE Services include games, worship, prayer, and the sound teaching of God’s Word, while making the entire experience excellent and fun for students. There are several opportunities for students to get involved, serve, and continue developing spiritually. FUSE Services at the Celebration Arena take place each Wednesday night at 6:30pm. For more information, visit our FUSE page.
Serving is the very heart and nature of Jesus. The Bible tells us that He came “not to be served, but to serve.” (Matthew 20:28) Simply put, there are some things about the character of Christ that we will never identify with until we start putting other people’s needs ahead of ours, and serve. There are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved in serving at any of our locations. We invite you to attend God-First Life as your first step to getting started. For more information, visit our Serving page.
One of the best ways to get connected with other people in the Celebration Church family is by participating in a Connect Group. Connect Groups are designed to help you build healthy relationships with others in a safe environment, while growing together spiritually. Our groups are categorized into five primary areas:
Faith Family Freedom Finance Fitness
Whatever your personal interest or stage of life, there’s a Connect Group for you! For more information, visit our Connect Groups page.
We believe the local church is the vehicle Jesus Christ chose and empowered to reach a lost and hurting world. Through our local outreaches and global missions, we mobilize teams and overcome hurdles that get in the way of people experiencing a God-first life. Our goal is to be the hands and feet of Jesus, driven by His heart to serve others, while giving people the opportunity to find true hope and fulfillment. Together, we are reaching our communities and changing our world for Jesus. To get involved, or for more information, visit our Missions & Outreach page.
