What about the kids?




Sunday Mornings:


Nursery is avaliable for babies up to age 3 during Sunday School and Worship Service hours.



This is really where learning happens as children get small group attention and instruction on Biblical teaching at their age level. We have terrific teachers who are eager to share God and His Word with children!


Angie Hicks- Preschool Teacher for ages 3-4

Brittany Norris- Teacher for grades K-2nd

Joan Ward- Teacher for grades 3rd-5th



Children’s Church: A children’s sermon, game activities, and crafts for children age PK4 (year before Kindergarten) through 2nd grade.

Wednesday Evenings:


Nursery is avaliable for babies up to age 3 during our Bible Study time from 6:30-7:30.



"Head, Heart, Hands"


We're learning how to renew our minds with the word of God, choose what to think about and guard our hearts as we grow and serve God.


Lesson time begins at 6:30


Kids age 3 up through 5th grade.



We are a busy group and have the utmost desire to share foundational Christian teachings with our children, minister to the needs of families and children, and give God the glory through it all! Please partner in prayer with us as we seek to lead our kids to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through safe, fun, and relevant ministry activities!
