string(5) "hello"


Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.

Jesus | Luke 18:16-17

We aim for every child to feel loved, come to know Christ, and find a place where they can grow through fun and life-changing experiences. We approach this goal by being:


We are dedicated to supplementing the family in their attempt to lay a spiritual foundation that, in God’s timing, will lead a child into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ and then to provide a place where they can grow in their knowledge and love for God.
He commanded our ancestors to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. | Psalm 78:5-6


God loves every child, and therefore we accept and love them just the way they are. Children who need special attention are lovingly welcomed. We have fun, but it is fun with a purpose! Our teaching is active, creative, and engaging with the purpose of connecting with kids to help them connect with God.
To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. | Paul in 1 Corinthians 9:22


We seek to connect children with loving adults who know and love Jesus—to be relational, not just informational.
As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them… | Luke 24:15


We believe that children are important and matter to God. Not only can children come to faith in Jesus Christ, but God commands adults to come to him with the simple faith of a child. We present the Good News of salvation through Jesus often and clearly, providing opportunities for children to invite him into their life as their savior and friend.
Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. | Jesus in Matthew 19:14



Preschool ministry is more than babysitting; it’s laying a critical foundation for faith in the life of a child. Our team members are screened and trained so that parents can rest assured that their child is in a safe and secure environment. Children participate in both large and small group activities in which they will play, laugh, and learn through activities tailored just for their little hearts and hands. We believe it’s in the preschool years that a child will form their first impression of their Heavenly Father, so our goal is that every preschooler grows up believing ...

  • God made me
  • God loves me
  • Jesus wants to be my friend forever

Supporting and embracing families and individuals affected by disability so they can grow in Christ and use their gifts to share God’s love.

 Everyone has their own individual needs and each person with a disability should be supported to enable them to engage with church life. We strive to embrace families and individuals affected by disability and allow them to grow closer to God and to their church family. Valuing the gifts and talents of all, we provide support so that individuals affected by disability can serve alongside their brothers and sisters in Christ. If you have a need, please let us know how we can serve you. 

Do you have a desire to learn and build relationships? You may participate in the disability ministry in these ways: 


Buddies are paired with children or adults with disabilities to provide social, behavioral, and physical support to attend and participate in church activities, either in an integrated setting or in a separate setting, if needed.


Our team supports families and individuals affected by disabilities when they encounter sudden changes in plans or emergency situations. Needs may include childcare, transportation, or care for an individual with a disability.
