Ministries

Children

In Children's Ministries we provide a safe, loving environment where kids can have fun and learn about an amazing God!

Our age-appropriate activities and curriculum are designed to teach our children (infant through grade 5) about Jesus and what it means to be a follower of Jesus. Each classroom is staffed with nurturing teachers who love Jesus and desire to help your child grow in his or her faith in Christ. Because the safety of your child is of utmost importance to us, all of our volunteers adhere to safety guidelines and submit to a background check before beginning their ministry.
