  • Our Children's Ministries includes Sunday School for all ages.  Our Sunday School classes begin at 10 o'clock and last until 10:45, giving plenty of time to meet back with parents and travel to the worship center.  Our graded curriculum serves the needs of children as they develop through each stage of childhood and growth in faith.  Our nursery is open during Sunday School and worship on Sunday mornings.
  • Children's Church takes place the last Sunday of each month, during which time volunteers take the kids out of the regular worship space to have worship with them in a kid-friendly way. 
  • Each Sunday our children are included in a special Children's Time during the worship hour, led by volunteers around a theme of the day.
  • Kid's activity bags and special activity bulletins are made available during worship to keep kids engaged so they can take part in this important time together.
  • Special activities are scheduled for kids around holidays like Christmas and Easter.  Look for announcements of these as they come up. 
  • Vacation Bible School is offered each Summer for part of a week, during which time kids learn intensively driven lessons that are focused on Bible-based teaching.
  • Confirmation Class is held for kids aged 12 and above, which allows them to explore the option of becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ and joining the church.
  • Infants are offered baptism upon request by their families.  Ask to speak to the pastor to schedule baptism for your child.  Their names are added to our baptized roll until age 18 or until they become full members of the church, upon professing faith in Jesus Christ.
  • We operate a Preschool for childen during the school year in our education building.
  • We also host a Cub Scout group for boys.
  • Kids in third grade through 8th grade are invited to serve as acolytes, with a requirement for training.  They are asked to light candles during worship, distribute the offering plates, and otherwise assist the pastor in worship.
