 “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6 Discover the wide variety of ministries for children, from toddlers through sixth grade. TMZ believes that children matter in worship and therefore should have a greater presence in worship.  The Children’s Ministry of TMZ exists to glorify God through evangelizing children, encouraging parents and edify servants so the gospel of Jesus Christ may be spread among our children, families may be supported, and the church may be strengthened. We impart the Word of God to the children by teaching with a systematic approach where they are able to hear it, see it, say it, and do it. We create an environment where the Holy Spirit is welcome and the children are positioned to encounter God's manifest presence. Worship, dancing, singing, and prayer, are just some of the many ways that His presence is manifest revealing the Father's love for them.
Children’s Church is designed to offer an alternative and relevant worship experience for children ages 3- 12. Children’s Church meets during the preached Word of God of the regular adult service. This ministry is 30 - 45 minutes long and includes song singing, a Biblical lesson, a craft and sometimes a snack! The purpose of Children’s Church is ministering to children by providing age appropriate learning opportunities that speak directly to them, while allowing a quiet environment for parents and others in the Sanctuary. Our hope and prayer is that each child will take with them the knowledge that our Lord Jesus Christ can be their personal Savior.
The purpose of this ministry is to worship, praise and edify our Lord through praise in the form of dancing.  Our hope is that the Holy Spirit would move through the children as they move in praise to our God.  We welcome all who have desire to edify Christ through dance.  The Anointed Angels minister every third Sunday. The Little Anointed Angels – Children ages 4 to 12 The Anointed Angels – Children ages 13 and up
The junior usher ministry is for children ages 5 to 18.  Its purpose is to edify the body of Christ and offer assistance and hospitality to members, visitors and friends. The ministry exists to groom and nurture the youth while preparing them for the responsibility of the Senior Usher Ministry.  The youth provide usher services every second Sunday.
