We celebrate Holy Communion the 1st Sunday of each month.

Special Easter and Christmas Worship Services.

Nursery care provided for all worship services.

♦ CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

Children’s Church is a special message for our little ones, and the adults as well…the “Children’s Moments” message occurs during the 10:30 a.m. worship service, and is followed by an open invitation for all children (kindergarten through 5th grade) to join us for Children’s Church in the classroom next to the nursery.

Vacation Bible School (VBS) — VBS is a great time for kids (preschool to kindergarten) to have fun and gain exposure to the bible.

Sunday Afternoon Youth Group (4-6 pm) — Every Sunday afternoon, young people (6th - 12th grade) gather at the church for a meal and to learn from scripture, and have fun! We will worship together, spend time in fellowship, play games, and have the chance to talk with kids their age about life issues.

♦ FELLOWSHIP and OUTREACH
