Children's ministry

We believe that children are not just the church of tomorrow but are part of the church of today.

We offer Sunday school classes for each age group and a Families First Sunday (the first Sunday of every month),

which is an opportunity for children to become active participants in the worship service and then meet all together

for activities. The other Sundays of the month, children go straight back to enjoy their Sunday classes.

We also offer a fun variety of workshops, events, VBS and summer camps,

               Please Contact Nora Davie ( if you have any questions about the 

Children's Ministry or would like to volunteer.

    Pre-K through 4th grade will return to their guardians for communion on these days. Please sign your child out after worship.

    9:30AM Toddlers will be signed in to their classroom by their guardian when they arrive, will be brought by the teacher to Children's Moment if time allows, and then attend room 323 activities. Toddlers will also be signed out by their guardian from their own classroom, as they will return to their own classroom after the room 323 activity for restroom break and snack.

    This new program will follow the Sunday morning Godly Play topics, with supporting memory verses, activities and games. Whether you attend morning or evening worship, students have a common theme and will be able to support one another with what they have learned. Ages 5 years through 3rd grade.
