Mariners Kids

Inspiring kids to follow Jesus and fearlessly change the world!

VBS Summer Camp 2024

VBS is a week-long adventure for kids like no other! In five fun-packed days, kids will experience God’s love and grace through fantastic storytelling, adrenaline-fueled games, creatively-inspired crafts, high-energy songs, and an amazing opportunity to impact people around the world! Register now to reserve your spot!

As we inspire children to follow Jesus and fearlessly change the world, we are deeply committed to children and their families and to these values that guide our kid’s ministry.

    1. Mariners Kids are safe, secure, and known. 
      Because we value kids so much, we value a facility that is safe and secure, leaders who can be trusted, and processes that parents appreciate. Because kids are so impressionable, we provide Christ-centered and encouraging leaders to know and care for each child.
    2. Mariners Kids have fun at church.
      Church can and should be fun for kids. A child’s experience at church shapes how they view God, so we use intentional music, stories, games, and hands-on learning activities to help kids understand God and His Word. 
    3. Mariners Kids are transformed from the inside-out.
      As we inspire kids to follow Jesus, we are discipling them to trust the One who transforms us. More than going after their behavior, we go after their hearts by teaching the good news of Jesus and applying the Word to their lives. 
    4. Mariners Kids are world changers. 
      We have a high view of kids and give them opportunities to serve their church and community today. We know we are investing in future leaders who will influence others and change the world with God’s grace and truth.

Special Needs

At Mariners, it’s our privilege and passion to serve children, teens, and adults with a wide variety of special needs, including Autism, Down syndrome, and ADHD. We understand that having a child with special needs is life-changing. Please know that it’s our heart for every individual to be supported and given the chance to engage with their peers and feel a sense of belonging. We would be honored to accommodate your loved one, and we would love to get to know you.


Most believers make the decision to follow Jesus as a child or teenager. This is why so many of our baptisms feature kids following Jesus in this very important step. It is very important that every child being baptized truly understand their decision to follow Jesus and to be baptized. To ensure kids are ready for baptism and to help parents lead their kids in their spiritual journey, we offer monthly baptism classes. We LOVE seeing kids take this big step in their faith and we look forward to celebrating your child’s baptism with you!

Child Dedication
One of the best ways to prioritize faith for your child is through Child Dedication. Child Dedication is actually the first major faith milestone for kids at Mariners and it gives parents the opportunity to pause and intentionally prioritize some things in regard to their kids. For parents to have a full understanding and context regarding the important role they play within the dedication, parents are required to complete an online registration form and attend a dedication class before signing up for an upcoming Dedication Celebration.


Our Jr Leadership program invests in the spiritual formation of your child teaching them the biblical reasons why we serve others with some practical training to volunteer in the Kids Building during service times. This is taught in fun and engaging ways once a week for 4 weeks with weekly devotionals that allow kids to dive deeper into their faith! The program is for 4th and 5th graders that are interested in growing deeper in their relationship with God and becoming leaders. 


Gifted and caring volunteers bring the message of Jesus to life while connecting with others as they serve. Adults and students are placed as volunteers based on gifts and availability. They serve passionately to make a difference in the lives of our kids. We also invite parents to serve with Mariners Kids because we believe it’s important for parents to model serving and invest in the lives of the future generation.
