Children’s Ministry
Our dedicated Children's Ministry staff and volunteers teach GOD'S WORD through Bible messages, songs, crafts, games, music/songs, prayer, and other age-appropriate activities for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary-age children. Each month the children will focus on a particular theme where they will be engaged in the teachings surrounding that theme. It is our goal, by teaching different aspects of one monthly theme each week, the children will gain a strong understanding of God's love through pivotal Bible lessons. These lessons are based on "The Gospel Project" and "Worship, Word & Way." We welcome your children to any of these opportunities.

Sunday mornings:
Sunday School: 9:00 – 10:00am
Snacks: 10:00- 10:20am
Junior Church: Occurs after "A Time for God's Children" message, during the 10:30am Sunday church service.

The classrooms are as follows:
"The Ark" for babies, toddlers & preschoolers
"The Garden" for our elementary-age kiddos
