Children's Ministry

Our purpose is to partner with parents in the teaching of their children to know God, love Jesus and live Spirit directed lives.

We provide a safe & fun place for children to interact with other kids and learn about our awesome God. They are led by trained teachers who are committed to Jesus Christ and to nurturing a relationship with your children. We conduct a background check on all of our teachers and have two teachers in all classrooms.

 

We believe that God desires a partnership between church and home in helping children develop good character, understanding about God, and service to others. We are here to assist you the parent, in raising up this next generation of Christ followers.

During our second service ChurchTime at 10:30 AM, your child will be enjoying free play, snack-time and singing, a Bible story and verse.


Snacks are Puffs for 1 year olds and Cherrios with water for 2 year olds. Their own snacks are welcome.
