Children are a blessing from the Lord - with these blessings also come responsibilities. As stewards of God’s children, parents are responsible for helping children grow physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. Churches have a responsibility toward children, too. We want to provide an environment in which children are safe, are taught at an age-appropriate level, and are encouraged to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ. We minister to the spiritual needs of our children through a Kidz Club Program. We have various meetings and activities for children - please be on the look-out for the next one! We also offer these yearly events: Easter Egg Hunt, Vacation Bible School, Fall Festival, Christmas Pageant
