Children's ministry

Our goal is to partner with parents in the spiritual development of their children. 


We have created a high-energy environment for children to

DISCOVER THE LOVE OF JESUS, where they can WORSHIP God, 

CONNECT with others, GROW in the word, and SERVE our world! 


We have a wonderful group of trained volunteers excited about sharing

the Word of God with your amazing children.


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

for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” —Matthew 19:14

Children's Ministry has two areas of focus, 

God's Garden and Pathfinders to help families

DISCOVER, WORSHIP, CONNECT, GROW, and SERVE.

You will then get a call from the Children’s Ministry contact person to deliver to you a gift bag and meal. Second, third or fourth baby?  Doesn’t matter, they’re all God’s children! It’s that simple!  Just let us know when you have a baby and we’ll take care of the rest.  We want to bless you and welcome your new little one. Want to bless others while serving God and your church?  If you can make a meal or deliver this gift, contact Connie McGinty at johnmcginty@comcast.net to serve.
