CHILDREN & FAMILY MINISTRY

Birth - 6th Grade

Here in Children & Family Ministry, we recognize that God calls us into ministry together. We want to walk alongside parents of all children. Our goal is to create and engage children and families through interactive games, age-appropriate activities, and fun! We want the Bible to come to life for each student. We believe that through the Holy Spirit we can equip families, create followers of Jesus, and learn to serve others. Come and walk with us.
