PRESCHOOL MINISTRY - Preschoolers, from babies to kindergarteners, are offered many opportunities for learning together. On Sunday mornings, Sunday School is offered at 9:45 A.M. to provide all ages with Bible learning experiences. We seek to lay biblical foundations in the life of every child. We believe that no child is too young to begin to learn about God's love and care. A nursery is provided for this age during worship following the weekly Children’s Sermon with the pastor.
GRADES 1 - 5 - Our ministry for children in grades 1 - 5 seeks to continue to lay biblical foundations in their lives to prepare them to follow Christ. On Sunday mornings at 9:45 A.M., Sunday School is offered to provide age graded Bible study opportunities. Different curricula may be studied throughout the year, from learning what it means to be a Christian, to asking questions about living out the faith at school and at home, learning about church ordinances like baptism, Lord's Supper, and the teachings of Jesus. Children attend morning worship with their families at 11:00 A.M. We also have a children's Wednesday night program beginning at 6:00 P.M. on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month. During this time they will learn new music, do crafts, and learn a Bible story. Parents are encouraged to attend as well, as it is a wonderful opportunity for the family to come together and grow in their faith as a family.
YOUTH MINISTRY - In addition to a Youth Sunday School class that meets on Sunday mornings at 9:45 A.M., there are special Sunday evening activities on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month, which includes a light supper, from 5:00 – 6:30 P.M.! Youth from 6th - 12th grades are encouraged to attend. These years are formative in a person's development, and we are keenly aware of the need for spiritual and social development during this stage of life. We seek to help youth have the opportunity to gain a greater understanding about their relationship with Christ and be better equipped to serve God as they prepare for their futures. Youth ministry includes spiritual retreats, mission activities and trips as well as special events designed around their interests and skills throughout the school year. Also, we encourage our youth to participate in local missions and mission/outreach trips.
