We exist to bring glory to God by making disciples through gospel-centered worship, gospel-centered community, gospel-centered service and gospel-centered multiplication. This is our process for discipleship. Out of this gospel-centered service is the overflow of discipleship, serving those in and outside the church. One of the ways we pursue and live out this discipleship trait is through volunteer opportunities.
In our Jungle, we strive to create an environment where children can experience the love that God has for them in a way that is understandable and meaningful to them, no mater what the age. It is our desire that each child leaves every Sunday knowing three simple truths: God made them, God loves them, and that Jesus wants to be their friend forever!
The Jungle is broken up into differnt age appropriate environments:
- Bed Babies - Birth until they are walking steadily, without assistance.
- Toddlers - Walking steadily, beginning to talk, talking, up until age 2
- 2's and 3's - must be 2 years old, do not need to be potty-trained, up until age 4
- 4's and 5's - ages 4 and 5
Each classroom has a permanent teacher, plus 1 or 2 additional volunteers. Permanent teachers are CPR certified and are responsible for curriculum and all diaper changes. Potty breaks are supervised by 2 volunteers. Backgrounds checks are done on all volunteers who work with children.
Each of our Jungle classrooms has an age-appropriate curriculum that teaches Biblical truths in a way that is accessible and enjoyable for our little ones. There are activities, Bible stories and prayers that are perfectly suited for each child's age and developmental level. Even our bed babies have a specific curriculm that is designed just for them. This curriculum is designed to build on itself, so that when a child moves up to the next class, they are fully prepared. There are also parent cues that are sent home with the kids, so that parents can keep up with what their kids are learning.

The Clubhouse is LIFE Church's environment for elementary aged kids, kindergarten through 5th grade. It is a wacky, fast-paced, high energy time where we invite kids to live out their understanding of how to grow in their relationship with God and others. Every Sunday we strive to tap into the natural way kids are wired to discover, so they can begin to experience for themselves who God Is, how He sees them and how much He loves them. We do this through worship, God's word, crazy contests, skits, games, memory verses, Life Apps, God Time Cards, small groups and so much more! We use an incredible resource developed by Orange known as 252 Basics. However, this curriculum would be just pages of paper if it weren't for an amazing team of volunteers who invest in, pray for, and pour into our kids. Clubhouse volunteers also give of their time, energy, and resources to make sure that the Clubhouse is prepared, safe, fun, and a Christ-centered environment each week.
Background checks are done on all volunteers who work with children.
Our goal in the Clubhouse is for kids to understand 3 basic truths before leaving the 5th grade and moving on to our Student Ministry: Wisdom, Friendship and Faith.
- I can make the wise choice
- I should treat others the way i want to be treated
- I can trust God no matter what
The Clubhouse at LIFE Church is an incredible place, showing kids God's big story and helping them discover the active part they can play in this life-long adventure to be more like Jesus Christ.

Donating your time is not the only way to serve at LIF. There are recurring costs to operating and staffing our ministry, as well as helping us do work throughout our community and the world. We believe that God calls us to give, and to give generously. We give you a chance to worship in this way on our website. Click HERE to be directed to our giving page.
As Jesus left this world, his parting words to his disciples were: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." We challenge you to be willing to serve and make disciples with us.
