kidzone children's ministry

Here at 22nd St., we believe that children are beloved in the eyes of God and we delight in the joy of His precious ones. We hold fast to the promise in Proverbs 22:6 -Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.


The most important part of your child’s Christian walk is the foundation; a building can only be as strong as the foundation on which it stands. Our mission is to connect your child to God, to His Word, and to develop Christ-like friendships that connect with the world and our community. You will have the privilege to work with an amazing team of volunteer teachers and church members. We highly value your children’s safety, through mandatory annual Child Safety Training as well as background checks.  Our goal for God’s Kingdom is seeing all children come to Christ and building a lasting relationship with Him.  If you have any questions or would like to learn more about our Children's Ministry here at 22nd St. please contact our Children's Ministry Director, Beth Godoy, at 520.747.3500, ext. 405 or by email at beth@22church.com.
