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
Our mission statement is "Exemplifying Righteouseness to Build and Encourage Righteousness." The leaders, teachers, and coaches that work in the Children's Department believe that the children will be able to live for God if we show examples of how to live by following Christ and showing unconditional love. We also believe that reaching families and teaching what God commands is key to building righteousness.
There is a place for everyone to be involved. Join us and you will discover the impact it will make in your family life. As your children worship with us, we would love to have you come hear hear our Pastor and be a part of an exciting time of worship.



Now is the time to teach our children more than goodness; we must teach them godliness. The difference is a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. That relationship is the basis for our foundation and belief system.
