Birth – 5th Grade
Our Children's Ministry focuses on loving children towards a relationship with Jesus Christ as we walk alongside parents and children on their spiritual journey. Our events and programs are designed to teach Bible lessons and concepts, share learning experiences and provide a safe, loving environment. We strive to make this ministry one of the first building blocks in a child’s spiritual foundation.
