For Children

Our Children's Ministry Team is dedicated to supplementing family spiritual disciplines with fun and meaningful Christian learning.

“Jesus said, ‘Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them,

for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

Matthew 19:14


            Through the faith of a child we can see the hopeful abandonment of all cares and concern to pursuit after Jesus. We know that our children need this encouragement to know their Heavenly Father. We look to partner with you as parents to help train a child in the way they should go so that when they are older they will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6). We use our programming to teach our little ones about the Bible and about the salvation they can find in Christ Jesus.
