believes all children have been called to be Christ's disciples. We are passionate about helping children see Jesus, but we also know that children help us see Jesus, too. We are committed to providing a loving and safe environment where children will encounter God with their families and other adult disciples as they journey in their relationship with Him.

What to Expect When You Visit

Our goal is to involve each group in meaningful, age-appropriate experiences that help them deepen their relationship with God. It is our desire that all of our children come to know and understand basic biblical truths that will lead to transformed lives.

Nursery school is for babies 6 weeks old through 24 months during classes and Worship services. 

Our Preschool ministry is geared for children 2 years old through 4 years old. We provide three separate opportunities for this age group each week (Sunday morning classes, Toddler Time during Worship, and Wednesday night classes).

Elementary is defined as Kindergarten through 5th grade for Sunday morning Bible class and Wednesday night Bible class

"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." And He took the children in His arms, placed His hands on them and blessed them. Mark 10:14-16
