The goal of the Children's Ministry is to help our children become true disciples of Jesus Christ. Children are helped to build a foundation for a lifetime of faith.
We love having children be a part of worship. We believe that the experience for children to worship with their families and with the rest of the congregation is an instrumental part of their faith journey.
Online services include a Children's Time.
