Children’s Ministry

Extra!  Extra!  Read all about it!
*Our third annual Compassion Talent Show is on the calendar for Sunday, April 29th, during the education hour. You are invited to join us in the Genesis Center as the children share their talents and collect a special offering that will be used to provide scholarships for refugee children to participate in Shine Arts Center, a local non-profit organization that provides introductory classes in dance, drama, art and music. We would love your support!
*Colbert Cooperative Preschool in now enrolling! Please help us spread the word about this unique opportunity for families to participate in a play-based, Christian cooperative preschool and to connect with other young families.
*It’s time to begin thinking about and praying for Mini Vacation Bible School. This will be our eighth year to offer this unique three-day VBS for preschoolers through rising first graders. The dates are set: June 5-7, 9:30-11:30 AM, and we are counting on a full enrollment (which means 72 little ones!). Now we just need to get our leadership team in place.  If you are able and willing to help, please contact Elizabeth Peterson at
