Children’s Ministry

Sunday mornings

Every Sunday morning we offer our children the opportunity to experience God in worship, fellowship, and Sunday School. During worship kids age 7 and under are invited to participate in Children's Church or with a worship bag in the Sanctuary.

After worship kids of all ages are welcome to continue learning and having fun in Sunday School. Older kids are also invited to be a part of the kids handbell group.

Continuing the fun…

  • Sunday Funday: on the second Sunday of the month kids, youth, and their families are invited to join in a fun, family friendly event.

  • Vacation Bible School: Every summer we offer a chance to dive into the Bible through this great ministry.

  • Easter Celebration: Each spring we offer an awesome opportunity for kids to experience the full miracle of Easter morning.
