The Yates Kids ministry seeks to expose children to the Kingdom of God through adventure, learning, missions, service, study, and fun! A lot of the ministry is organic and informal, built around relationships and unhurried time together, but there are many structured weekly and special events that help get children and families in on the fun:

Weekly Events:
