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

Children and youth breathe life into our faith and relationships.

With activities throughout the year for children of ages 0-12, our children are vital to our community life.

Children are participants and leaders in worship. 

Children receive an activity satchel, and elementary age children receive church notes that bring to life the flow of worship.

Time in each worship service is set aside for a children’s message.

Children also begin learning the importance of generosity as they collect a special offering known as Hunger for Change on the first Sunday of every month.

At 9:45am on Sundays, children participate in Sunday school.

Nursery is available during Sunday school and worship for ages 0-5.

The youth group gathers on Sundays from 4 to 5:30pm, September through May with special events during the summer.
