Jesus said “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Matthew 19:14

Our Children’s Ministry seeks to provide a welcoming and nurturing environment for all children and their families within our community and church family. We desire to build a solid foundation of loving God, worshiping joyfully, sharing God’s love, teaching God’s Word, and experiencing the power of the Holy Spirit through serving others. It is truly our hope that children and families connect with our ministry and find their identity in Christ as his children as they worship, study, and serve.

We sing contemporary praise and worship music led by a band and both clergy and lay members lead the worship. You are invited to sit or stand, raise your hands or not, clap or not. It really is up to you. The main thing that you can expect is the freedom to worship God in Spirit and in Truth. You will hear a great message that will speak practical Biblical truth into your life and a group of people that will surround you and support you as we travel through this great journey of life together.
