  • Children's Worship

    Patterned after the adult worship service, we worship on the children's level through music, drama, Bible teaching, and small group activities, enabling children to make a better transition to worshipping with the entire body of Christ. Children's Worship is only available during the school year.

  • Missionaries in Training

    Kids enjoy learning about local and international missions through exciting and interactive lessons. We also provide kids the opportunity to participate in a variety of service projects throughout the year.

  • Sunday School

    In Sunday School we open the Bible to meet fascinating Bible characters, study biblical events, and talk about how to apply biblical truth to our lives. Kids are also encouraged to memorize specific Bible verses as well as the books of the Bible.

Hand in Hand

Our Hand in Hand Ministry serves families who have children with Special Needs. Hand in Hand seeks to provide each child with what is best for them while at church. Children have the option of remaining in a Hand in Hand classroom, or attending Sunday School with a buddy (a helper to assist them) during Sunday and Wednesday activities.

For more information, please email Amy Kirby, our special needs minister, or visit the Hand in Hand page.

"From the lips of children and infants come songs of praise to you..." Psalm 8:2

Kids grab on to songs of praise with joyful innocence because we were made to worship! In Kids Worship Choir, your child will develop a lifestyle of worship as well as musical skills as they learn to express love and adoration to God through singing, instruments, choreography, drama and games.
