Kids - Center Stage

Welcome to Center Stage - TBC's Children's Ministries! The goal of Center Stage is to help children place and keep Christ in the "center" of their lives. We partner with families to grow children in faith and character.

We provide a safe, caring and fun environment for your children (from birth through Grade 5) where they will discover who God is in an atmosphere designed just for them. All volunteers and staff working with children are interviewed, trained and fingerprinted.

We have a variety of ministries for your children. You can read about them below or explore the tabs on the left. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Dottie at (209) 369-1948 or dottie@tbclodi.com.

PRIME TIME - Sunday Morning Ministries

Spotlight - 8:45-11:45am (Birth - 24 months). Spotlight focuses on showing God's love to your child. We provide nurturing and well-supervised childcare for babies and toddlers.

Improv Club - 9am & 10:30am (2 years - Pre-K) - The Improv Club is where we enjoy the spontaneity of this age group while pointing them to the truth that God loves them.

Act One - 9am-10:15am (K - Grade 5) - Formerly "King's Kids", this children's worship service is alive with Christian truths taught through music, hands-on object lessons and video adventures. With adult mentors, this program is run by the Stage Crew (a children's ministry opportunity for selected 5th graders+ who have shown leadership ability).

Act Two - 10:30am - 11:45am (K - Grade 5) - During Act Two, transformational teaching will leave kids living differently on Mondays because of their time with us on Sundays. Kids meet in graded small groups.

MIDWEEK MARQUEE - Wednesday Night Ministries

AWANA - 6:15pm - 8:00pm (3 years - Grade 2) during months of August thru April. The goal of AWANA is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve.

Wednesday Night Live! 6:15pm - 8:00pm (Grades 3-5) during months of August thru April. Formerly "Kids For Christ", Wednesday Night Live! has an inspirational worship time with an innovative Bible lesson followed by gender-based small groups. Here the children develop meaningful relationships with each other and with Christ-committed adults.

VeggieTown - 6:30-8:00pm (3 years - Grade 2) during the months of May thru mid-June). Characters from the popular VeggieTales series are used to lead children in becoming servants of the kingdom of God.
