Children’s Ministry

We are committed to helping our children grow as believers and developing a faith that sticks. Each week, loving, caring, enthusiastic adults teach kids about biblical truths from God’s story, the Bible. Whether in a 9:30AM Sunday School class, the 10:30AM “Power Play” for babies and preschoolers or 11AM Children’s Church for elementary aged children, kids learn about the truth of God’s love and power and the gift of salvation available through Jesus Christ.
