We believe children are blessings from God...for God. We believe parents are stewards and called to instruct them in the ways of God (Deut 6:7). In light of this wonderful calling, the Children's Ministry exists to equip and assist parents with the privilege of instilling a passion for the glory of God into the next generation. From KiDs! 4 Missions to Life Groups to Awana, the Children's Ministry is purposefully designed to teach children truths about God, while reinforcing the efforts of parents in the home.

Life Groups (Meet 9:00 am Sundays)
In Life Group, children are taught Bible verses and key stories of the Bible. Our teachers are dedicated to helping your children develop their faith.
Our preschool building is located adjacent to our sanctuary and is designed for children from birth through 5 years old.
Kindergarten through 6th grade meet in our Activity Building next to the Preschool Department.
Sunday mornings, Kindergarten-3rd grade meets at 10:10 am for Children's Church. Parents pick them up in the Children's Worship Room across from the gym at the conculsion of the service.
Children's Church does not meet the first Sunday of the month, so children can worship with their families.
On Sunday evenings at 5:30 p.m. during the school year, children ages 2-6th grade are invited to participate in AWANA.
AWANA is an acronym from 2 Timothy 2:15, it stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. It is designed to focus on Bible memorization and uses games, songs and Bible lessons to teach children scripture.
AWANA consists of the following clubs:

Wednesday evenings begin with Children's Choirs at 5:30 p.m.
Join us for a great time of music and fun.
Children will be dismissed from choir and brought to the gym for a FREE supper of pizza.
On Wednesdays after choir and pizza, join us in the gym from 6:30 to 8:00 pm for a fun time of recreation, Bible study and mission activities.
We do provide childcare for preschool age children for most services. Your children will be cared for in a safe environment by loving teachers.
