Children's Ministry

Children are born with an innate sense of wonder and faith that is real and authentic. 

From birth through sixth grade, our children encounter Jesus alongside loving, faithful adults, they become familiar with the stories and teachings of the Bible.  

Our gifted and talented adults encourage learning in a creative, supportive and age-appropriate environment.

They work with and care for children—teaching, counseling, directing, supervising and playing with. They tell our children a lot of stories. They tell them about Noah and the Ark, Daniel in the Lion’s Den, David and Goliath, and more — stories about how God is faithful to those who follow Him. 

As a church, we make vows to love and to serve as examples for your children, and to show them where they fit into God’s story. As teachers and leaders our role is to provide a foundation of experiences on which children build a life of learning and growth toward a mature and vital faith.

Sunday School (Sundays: 10:45 AM)

Sunday School offers a weekly adventure through the Bible!  Children will make Bible stories, Bible people, and Bible passages a part of their lives.  They will come to know the Bible as their book and find ways to let the Bible speak to them today.  Sunday School provides Bible stories, science activities, arts and crafts, animated video storytelling, and active games into a lived-faith experience that will help children discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus today!
