Children’s Ministry

We are as excited as ever about the upcoming semester in children’s ministry, and we hope to have as many of you involved as possible! We are grateful for the feedback many of you gave in our fall congregational survey, and we are taking it into account as we pray and plan for the semester ahead. Please pray with us that we always keep in mind our primary purpose: To give children the opportunity to know Jesus Christ and develop a relationship with Him, as Lord and Savior; and pray that that we faithfully carry out our mission: To provide opportunities for children and families to worship, engage with God’s Word, pray, serve and have fun together. May the joy of Christmas continue to fill your hearts in the year ahead!
