Kids

Children’s Sunday School
Sunday – 9:00 am
What is salvation? How does someone become a Christian? What does it mean to become like Jesus? This Class entitled, “To Be Like Jesus”, helps answer these important questions by explaining elements of the Gospel message, its purpose, and promise. A major portion of this study focuses on the doctrine of sanctification – the process by which a Christian becomes more and more conformed to the likeness of Jesus.

Children’s Church
Sunday @ 10:30 am
Our curriculum for both our toddler and elementary groups is called ‘The Gospel Project”. We’ll praise God with fun, meaningful songs, celebrate God’s attributes and mighty works, and respond to God with open hearts and willing hands. Please join us as our lesson teaches us how God is faithful to his people.

Mid Week Study Programs
Wednesday Evenings – 6:30 pm
Our Fall Wednesday evening Mid Week Studies take place from September to April. Designed for the entire family, these programs are structured to educate and equip ourselves with the tools we need to embrace our biblical teachings, and apply them to every day life.  Check back in August for information on our Fall study program.

Our 2016 VBS Week, entitled ‘Submerged’, took our kids on an adventure like no other, scouring the mysterious fathoms of the deep sea. As our kids submerged themselves in God’s Word, they discovered that Jesus saw people differently. He doesn’t just see what’s on the outside; He sees who people are deep down. Click here to take a look back through this amazing week!
