Children’s Church

Our Sunday program is designed for children ages 4 years to 5th grade. Children begin their morning in the church service. After the Children's message with Pastor Catie, they are excused to attend "Godly Play".

Children will have the opportunity to learn about the Bible through stories, creative crafts, and games. We want the students to come with a sense of anticipation. We provide a lesson filled with games and crafts that compliment the Bible. Don't forget we provide a delicious snack.

For more information, contact our Director of Christian Education, Lesa Kunelis.
