Things to Know
KIDS ROCK is the midweek discipleship program we offer for kids!! KIDS ROCK has three different areas for children to come and build their spiritual foundation while having tons of fun! We have First Steps, for ages 3 years through Pre-K, Nehemiah Kids for kindergarten through 4th grade, and Leaders In Training for our 5th and 6th graders. We believe having these specific curriculums for these specific age groups will help your child learn to his/her fullest! We are all about helping children begin a relationship with Jesus that will grow over a lifetime! KIDS ROCK is from 6:30-8:00 p.m. on Wednesday nights from September-April. If you are a member of IBC and need a place to serve, call the church office, and we’ll hook you up!!
We are incredibly blessed to have such an amazing group of Life Group teachers! We have Life Group classes at 9:45 a.m. for every age group, starting at age 3. Our classes are very active and utilize different learning techniques to help the children learn as much as they possibly can. Life Groups are offered year-round.
Children’s Worship introduces children ages 3 years through Pre-K to congregational worship and equips them to join in that worship at the appropriate time. Preschoolers have the opportunity to participate in the regular 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. worship service with their parents and are dismissed to the Children’s Building before the sermon. They then go to the 3 Years - Pre-K classrooms for a Bible story and a time of hands-on learning that includes crafts and games. Children are picked up in their classrooms upon conclusion of the worship service.
We are incredibly blessed to have such an amazing group of nursery workers and Life Group teachers! Our Nursery workers undergo training provided by MinistrySafe to make sure our Nurseries are sanitized, warm, and loving places where little ones can feel safe and accepted. We offer three different nurseries: 0-11 months, 12-23 months, and 2-year-olds. Your children will love their time spent in these nurseries. We have the best staff of nursery workers who are committed to the safety and spiritual development of your little ones. Our classes are very active, utilizing different learning techniques to help the children learn as much as they possibly can. All Nurseries are offered year-round.

As the parent of a child 2 years and younger, please include the following things in your child’s bag: 2 or 3 disposable diapers, a complete change of clothes and a bottle/sippy cup of milk, juice or water. Please LABEL all personal items so we can make sure your child’s things go home with you!
Yes. Our preschool department (first floor) has a check-in system at both entrances. This system allows our employees and volunteers to know who is able to pick up a child. When a child is checked in, a unique sticker is generated for the child. When an adult comes to get the child they must present the sticker to the volunteers at the desk before they are allowed to enter the preschool area. When you arrive at the check in desk, you will fill out a guest information sheet and the volunteer will give you a sticker.
When you pull in our parking lot you will see our children’s building entrance. Enter through those doors and you will be greeted by your check-in desk volunteer who will show you where to go. Babies through preschool classes are located on the first floor, and kinder through 6th grade are located on the second floor.
