CHILDREN

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me." - Matthew 19:14  

We are passionate about connecting children to Christ and to each other. The pastors and teachers are here to support and encourage parents in their roles as Christ-followers and mentors of their children.

We value inclusion whenever possible. We do, however, offer a class for children, teens, and adults with special needs during both hours on Sunday Mornings. This class is staffed with teachers who extend special care to ensure the individual needs of each student are met and that they learn about God’s love for all of His children.
