Discover, Engage, and Share God
Our Children and Youth programs are designed to nurture and facilitate growth, empower, and equip our students to grow in their faith and live out their faith. Sunday’s during worship: There is a nursery provided for infants to 3-4 years old. Children are always welcome in the sanctuary as the parent choose.
Children’s church is ages 4 year old to 4th grade. Children gather in worship through our music service and go to children’s church after a Children’s moment with the Pastor. During Children’s church, children will discover, engage and share God through a variety of ways. There are timely messages, crafts and ways of serving the larger church.
