Helping People Find Life In Jesus Christ By Following Him.
As we apply this to children we desire to unfold the good news of Jesus Christ in progressively deep ways as children are spiritually formed into the image of Christ.
We strive to foster a spiritually rich environment where our loving God captures their hearts and minds.
We yearn for them to know Christ in a personal way and for them to have the abundant life He offers everyone who calls upon His name to be saved.
We understand that our Children’s Ministry is a family ministry where the church and home partner together in the spiritual training of children. We believe the home – the parents – are the primary agents for helping their children to follow Christ Jesus.
SUNDAY SCHOOL 9:00 A.M.
Preschoolers will learn God made me, God loves me, and He wants to be my forever friend. Children will learn about making wise choices, trusting God no matter what, and treating others the way they want to be treated.

Kids On Mission is a powerful ministry in leading kids to be involved in making disciples and multiplying churches among unreached people and places for the glory of God.

Hi5 5th GRADE MINISTRY
Hi5 is our ministry exclusively for those in 5th grade. Preteens are at an age where they need to be challenged to live out their faith with confidence and conviction in knowing what they believe and why they believe it. The ministry involves around this key verse – “And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was on him.” Luke 2:40
JAM – Jesus and Me
JAM is class that is intentionally designed for children who are asking questions about becoming a Christ follower, or for children who have made a profession of faith and are ready to follow through with believer’s baptism. Because we believe parents are the number one spiritual trainers for their children, this class will require parent participation.
This class will be offered in the Fall and Spring. Email Nichole for more details.
