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
