God focused.  Family driven.

Sunday School
Through age appropriate lessons and fun activities, your child will develop biblical foundations as they learn about the Christian faith and how it applies to their life.  We have amazing teachers who desire to share their love for the Lord as they teach and encourage children. 

Children’s Sermon
This time in our weekly worship service is dedicated to our children and helping them learn biblical truths. 

Children’s Worship
Children, 4 years old-3rd grade, are dismissed from the worship service to go with a group of caring adults to worship God and experience His presence in a hands-on, fun, kid friendly environment.  


Children’s Choir
Each week we have a time of worship and singing.  We also get songs ready to sing in our Sunday worship services.  Have your singing voice ready!  Children are divided up according to their current grade level in school.

Dinner for Kids
Because we know listening ears are most often attached to full bellies, we serve free dinner for our kids each week.  

 Royal Ambassadors (R.A.’s)  is the group for 1st through 6th grade boys.  R.A.’s learn to live out the R.A. pledge to become well informed followers of Christ.  The boys are divided into groups by age and led by Christian men through the Lad and Crusaders guides.  To learn more, visit  

Girls in Action (G.A.’s)  is the group for 1st through 6th grade girls.  G.A.’s learn to live out the G.A. pledge by learning about missions, praying for missions, giving to missions, doing missions, and participating in the work of the church.  The children of today are the missions’ leaders of tomorrow; G.A.’s encourages girls to learn about God’s love, become aware of the needs of others, learn the importance of prayer; and start doing missions themselves. To learn more, visit  

Mission Friends  is the group for preschoolers (ages 3’s through kindergarten).  Mission Friends provides developmentally appropriate missions learning experiences to help preschoolers understand ways they can help others know about God’s love! To learn more, visit
