The Children’s Ministry seeks to provide opportunities for children to focus on others instead of self. We believe molding the faith of children is of vital importance to God’s church. We have classes for all ages from newborn to 5th grade. Our curriculum, “Faith Weaver,” helps students walk chronologically through the Bible. As the children are learning fun and exciting Bible stories the teaching teams are molding the children in Christ-like behaviors.
…Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it…
…Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in this world…Phillippians 2:15
