Children's Ministries

The mission of Children's Ministries is to impact the lives of children by reaching out and drawing them into a personal and growing relationship with Christ and to train them to disciple others.  The vision for our children is "in the pipeline".

All children are invited to join the Children's Sabbath School, Children's Church (4th Sabbaths), Vacation Bible School (
see calendar for dates), Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting, Neighborhood Bible Club, our sidewalk ministry, our Bible study program, the Bible Bowl (once per quarter - you will learn the lessons of  preselected books of the Bible), and our Internet Evangelism.
