Jesus welcomes and loves the little children. The disciples of Jesus turned the parents and children away, but Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." (Matthew 19:14).
Indeed, children are precious in the eyes of God! Our children's ministry is committed to bringing children to Jesus, introducing them to the character of Jesus and His saving grace, and helping them develop a relationship with Him as they grow.
Children are a gift from God entrusted to our care. We strive to partner with parents and co-workers who are committed to serving in the children's ministry to:
- minister to children that they may come to know, accept, love and follow Jesus Christ
- help children in building personal relationships with Jesus, that they may be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit and live according to the likeness of Christ
- nurture children spiritually that they may grow and thrive in Christ's love

Church and worship is not just for adults. Children, too, can praise and worship God. Matthew 21:16 - "Do you hear what these children are saying?" they asked him. "Yes," replied Jesus, "have you never read, "'From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise'?". Every Sunday, children of age 5-5th grade gather in the church library for a time of lively worship, praise and Bible story.
There is Vacation Bible School every year in the summer where kids spend a weekend of fun and learning. Stay tuned for VBS schedule in late spring.
