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 are welcome and joyful participants in the life of our church!  We make every effort to provide them with a safe, loving environment in which they can be taught about God’s love for them and His desire for them to love and share His gospel with others. 
We offer many regularly scheduled programs for children of all ages, as well as periodic special events such as Vacation Bible School, musicals, camp opportunities, Trunk or Treat, mission projects, and more!  Our children’s activities are fun, educational, and designed to help foster in them a desire to serve God and each other.
Sunday Mornings
During each of our to worship services, just before the offertory, children are invited to the front for a “Children’s Moment”–a short summary of the day’s sermon.  Afterwards, children aged 3 to 2nd grade are encouraged to join Mrs. Hillary in “Children’s Church” for activities and further Bible stories.
There is also a nursery on the 1st floor for children younger than 4 years of age.  Babies and toddlers are provided with an opportunity for play and music in a safe, well-supervised, and caring environment.
