The heart of Preschool & Children's ministry at our church is to teach kids about who God is and how His word applies to their lives in creative and memorable ways. The Children's Department exists to assist parents in guiding their child's spiritual development. It is our goal to help your child connect with God, to know that God loves and cares for us, and wants our trust and obedience. Part of our goal is to help your child respond by trusting Jesus as Savior; by thanking, serving, and praising God; by believing God's promises and obeying His commands.
