CHILDREN & YOUTH


Our church has vibrant children and youth ministries that seek to create a healthy balance in five key ministry areas:

  • FELLOWSHIP- times to get to know, interact with, and care for one another
  • WORSHIP- times to praise God
  • STUDY- times to reflect together on the content and meaning of the Gospel and other chosen topics
  • SERVICE- times to live out our faith in the congregation and community
  • OUTREACH- times to reach out to others in order to be a growing community of believers

Vacation Bible School

    Second week of July

A fun-filled week during the summer where children learn about Jesus and His great love. Each day the children will worship with high-energy praise songs, hear a Bible story, play games, and enjoy a yummy snack. We conclude the week with a family celebration that includes a hot dog supper and inflatables on our front lawn. We have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2021 VBS, but we look forward to welcoming you back in 2022!
