Children's Ministry

But Jesus said, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” | Matthew 19:14 (NASB)

Philosophy for Children’s Ministry

We believe that it is our role as the church to come alongside of the parents and families in ministering to children.  Our goal is to equip the families with the tools neccesary to minister to their kids.  This is primarily done by preaching the word.

The AWANA program has been a huge blessing! It’s nice to know that my kids get the Word poured into them every week by teachers that genuinely love them!!

Several Opportunities for Children

AWANA

The goal of AWANA is to provide a solid foundation our children need to grow and become adults who know, love, and serve the Lord. We have classes for toddlers through sixth grade, each designed to minister to your child’s developmental and spiritual needs.

Vacation Bible School

Summer 2020

Cancelling VBS 2020 this year was a much prayed over decision made in light of the risks posed by COVID-19 but, Answers in Genesis has graciously provided an online VBS.  I hope you’ll check out these resources & find joy in sharing God’s truth with your family & friends! We pray you & your family will stay safe, healthy, & enjoy the summer!
