Children’s Ministry

Children experience God’s love for them through the people of our Christian Community who are dedicated to their spiritual growth and learning. In a loving, fun environment, children have the opportunity to learn about God, the Bible, and what it means to be part of a Christian community. Read on to learn about special events for children.

Sunday School

Children in Kindergarten – 6th grade are invited to our Summer Sunday School meeting in the Youth Center at 10 am on Sundays. We will have a fun rotational style program that includes Bible Stories, Crafts and Music. Due to COVID, we ask that all children wear a mask while inside the church facility. 

Worship

We encourage families to worship together. We have children’s worship bulletins and special worship bags with things for children to do that will enhance their worship experience.

Nursery

Nursery care is not available at this time.

Music

Music is an integral part of praising God. On Sundays during the school year, we provide children with an array of music activities. Groups start as early as 3 years of age and continue to youth. For more information, visit the Music Ministry page.

Will not be taking place in 2021.
