sunday at 8:30am, 10:00am, and 11:30am

Waumba Land is our Vineyard kids program. Waumba is the Swahili word for "Creator", so Waumba Land is the "Land of the Creator"! Our mission is to equip a joyful army of children who are secure in the love of God and are inspired to love others as much as they have been loved.

We want each child to walk away from Waumba Land having experienced God's love, presence and power. It is our desire to partner with families in raising their children to understand their true identity and destiny in Christ.

Here is a list of classrooms available during our services:

  • Nursery (6 months to 1-year-olds)
  • 2-year-old classroom
  • 3-year-old classroom
  • 4-year-old classroom
  • 5-year-old / Kindergarten classroom
  • 1st grade classroom
  • 2nd grade classroom
  • 3rd to 4th grade classroom

Class assignments and age ranges are subject to change depending on attendance.

These classrooms are available ten minutes before the start of the church service. You may check your children in at our check-in station which is right off our main auditorium/worship area.
