Children’s Ministry

Children’s Ministry

The Children’s Ministry is our way to partner with the parents and families of our church community in order to teach and nurture our children in the gospel of Jesus Christ for their ultimate worship of Him (Deut. 6:4-9). We do this on Sunday mornings through the Nursery, Sunday School, and Children’s Church ministries, on Wednesdays evenings during the school year at Awana, and every June at Vacation Bible School.
