Ministry to children is essential in today’s culture. Many households have two working parents or are single parent homes. Therefore the church must help in the area of teaching, caring, and ministering to children as never before. While the church should not replace the responsibility of parents, we must however strengthen and assist them in this task.

These commandments I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. ~ Deuteronomy 6:6-7

Sunday School

We invite your children, ages birth through 5th grade to join us for children’s Sunday school at 9:45 am. We offer two nurseries for infants (0 – 15 months) and toddlers (15 months – 2 years) and 2’s & 3’s class. Elementary age kids are divided into two classes (preK – 1st grade and 2nd grade – 5th grade). Our teachers are dedicated to showing kids the love of Christ and teaching them that GOD is real and that HE loves them abundantly.

Children’s Church

Children, ages 4 – 5th grade, are released to children’s church after praise and worship during the 10:45 am service. Our infant, toddler, and 2’s & 3’s nurseries as well as a nursing room for moms are all available during the service.

Wonderful Wednesdays

When: First and Third Wednesday of each month starting September 6th

Time: 6:00 pm to 7:45 pm

Who: Children Prek/ 4 years old through 5th grade

What: A fun time for your kids to come and learn about Jesus and the Gospel! Snacks will be provided but be sure your child has eaten dinner before coming.

Family Worship Sundays

On the 5th Sunday of a month, we have a special family worship service where children remain in the service to worship with their families. We believe it is important for children to see their parents in a worship environment so that children will have an example to follow as they grow in their own relationship with God. Normal child care is still available for ages 3 years and under.
