Kids at IBC

Where young hearts can discover God's love.


This isn't just childcare to us. From our curriculum to our crafts, everything we do is to point your kids to Jesus.



6 weeks - Kindergarten

Every Sunday morning, our Early Childhood wing is buzzing with kids learning about God's love in age-appropriate ways. After 30 minutes of small-group fun (including snack, of course), all kids age three through Kindergarten gather together for group worship and Bible time before returning to their classrooms for a quick review and parent pick-up.


1st - 5th grade

Every Sunday morning, Elementary kids are engaging with the Bible, exploring theology, and building lasting friendships. After 20 minutes of grade-level fellowship and fun, all elementary students gather together for worship and prayer. Grade groups return back to their classrooms for discussion before parent pick-up.


For your first visit, please arrive early and use the front-row visitor parking in the lot off Regent Blvd. Enter and look for the New Family Check-In where our amazing team of volunteers will help register your kids. You'll receive coded tags to ensure a safe pick-up after worship.

Your child's safety is our highest priority.
All our volunteers are background checked, Ministry Safe certified, and trained in all weather/fire/threat safety procedures. We have police-monitored cameras in every room and hallway, and our secure check-in and out procedures ensure we always know where each child is.


What are you good at? What do you love to do? Whether it's as a greeter, classroom leader, storyteller or something else—our team is here to help you discover the perfect way to share God's love with the next generation.

Michelle Garza

Early Childhood Director

Michelle Garza currently serves as the Early Childhood Director for IBC’s Kids ministry. Every week, (with the help of some amazing volunteers) she ensures that kids from birth to fifth grade experience the love of Jesus. Her job consists of a lot of crayons, a lot of coffee, and we’re pretty sure a lot of jewels on her crown in heaven. Michelle lives in Roanoke with her husband John-Michael, two kids, and two cats. When she’s not working, she loves to be outside (unless it’s over 90 degrees, then count her out). Her prayer for IBC is that the people who walk through our doors would find a deep relationship with Jesus, feel accepted just as they are, and find joy in serving others.
