Leading the New Generation

Our ministry exists to bring children into age appropriate WORSHIP where they can BELONG to the family of God, GROW in their relationship with Christ, learn to SERVE and then go SHARE Christ in the world!


Our Children’s Ministry is led by a team of staff and volunteers whose passion is children and whose vision is to “Connect Kids to God and to Others”! Our goal is to provide a fun and interactive program tailored just for kids no matter what age and grade to help them know Jesus and grow spiritually as they build meaningful relationships with other children and adults!

The Godly Play program is a Montessori based religious education program.  It uses an imaginative approach to working with children, an approach that supports, challenges, nourishes and guides their spiritual exploration.  Godly Play presents Biblical stories to the children and then asks “wondering “ questions to help the children explore their relationship with God.  We meet Sundays during the 10:00 service, from September through the beginning of June.  Our Godly Play class includes grades preschool to first grade, the mix enriches the discussion and the interaction between the age groups is supportive and loving. 

The focus is to look into God's word, find its meaning, and discuss how to apply it in our lives. The class is an open forum where all are encouraged to express their opinions. The mission is to help students grow to be faithful followers of Christ who love God and love each other. Each class ends in prayer where students share requests and another student prays for that person.

We provide clean, loving, and professional nursery care for our 10 am service. 

Our dedicated and caring staff will give excellent attention to your child's needs. From infants to toddlers, children are provided with toys and activities designed to fit their specific needs and to develop them where they are.


Certainly, we do our best to try to connect them with Bible stories and songs that will resonate in their hearts and point them toward God and His Word at a very young age. We look forward to serving you and your family.
