We believe the home is where the decision to follow Christ and live a God-centered life is most likely to take place, and that parents are responsible for the spiritual development of their children. Our programs are designed to help, strengthen, confirm and reinforce what parents are teaching. Our aim is to partner with parents to ignite and nurture the faith of their children.

Ministry to the children is important, because children are being shaped and molded by many factors. We want to do our part to shape and mold them into faithful followers of Christ who love the Bible, affirm its worth, and grow in their abilities to understand, express and defend its teachings.

Mission Statement:

To develop life-long Disciples of Christ. With God’s grace and our church family, we will help each child discover their God-given potential and gifts through Christ-like attitudes, servant hood and discipling. Each of our programs and activities are designed to help us accomplish our mission: (1) discover God’s truth and the joy of knowing him, (2) develop a passion for His Word and lifelong dedication to growing in their relationships with Him and (3) display his love throughout our church and community through service and ministry.



This ministry is the beginning of leading a child to Jesus. We teach them about Jesus through words, prayers, and songs. Each child is prayed for every time he or she is in the Nursery. The Nursery is a place of loving kindness and soul nurturing.

Toddler & Preschool


Little by little and step by step, we build a foundation of understanding for young children, helping them to catch a glimpse of the greatness of God. We present truths about God in very simple words, through Bible stories and prayer. Children also have an opportunity to participate in singing songs of praise to God.





Right thinking about God is important in living a life of faith, so these lessons are designed to present the material, including Bible stories, in a way that displays the greatness and worth of God. On the weekends the children are part of a large group gathering for worship and teaching along with a more personal, small group time with adult leaders.





We want the children’s faith to grow through studying and learning of the greatness of God as well as understand their need of salvation. At this level, Biblical truth is taught more in depth. The children often engage in discussions and personal application of the truths taught. Children also have an opportunity to participate in worship time.
