Our Ministry Purpose to to help children grow as Jesus did: in wisdom, stature (character) and in favor with God and people (Luke 2:52)

Our Ministry team wants to assist parents and families in laying spiritual foundations for their children that will lead them to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord, that will give them tools for growth in Christ and that will encourage them to live and serve others. 

The children's Ministry provides biblical teaching, weekly activities, and special events for children, birth through preteen (Grade 5), to help accomplish this life-long adventure.
