OVERVIEW OF PROGRAMS
Children's Church is our Sunday morning class offered each week year round. Our 4 classrooms include a Nursery, a Preschool (4-6 years old), Elementary (3rd-5th grade). Children are encouraged to stay with their parents for the singing/praise portion of the worship service and then are dismissed to class. Our goal for these classes is to familiarize children with God and His Word by teaching Bible stories through creative and engaging methods.
Wednesday Night Challenge is what happens when you mix crazy activities, fun games and Bible lessons and roll them all into one program! While playing games with friends and making new ones, kids learn what it means to be a Christian, one day at a time. We meet throughout the fall, winter and spring. Designed for toddlers through 5th grade.
