Children’s Church provides services every Sunday during church for children ages 6-12. Children are served a nutritious light breakfast before services begin. Our mission is to provide a program that teaches basic knowledge of the life of Jesus Christ from his birth through his ministry, crucifixion, resurrection, and basic information about the Bible.
Children learn these lessons from our Adventure Bible and Juniorway magazine that supply children with the most attractive means of learning God’s Word. Each week children participate in bible activities, games, painting, songs and much more. Students are encouraged to come every week to learn the wonderful news about God.
For the age group 1-5. Children are well nurtured while the parent(s) or guardian enjoy uninterrupted spiritual time.
We offer more than child sitting. In addition to free playtime we offer a classroom setting focused on Christian teachings through song and reading. Teachings such as “The Books of the Bible” and “The Lord’s Prayers” are just to name a few. There’s weekly handouts, “Preschool Playhouse” that provides relatable stories teaching little ones love, generosity and community involvement.

2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to show thyself approved…….”
In Sunday school we affirm and teach the word of God. We have curriculums for all ages ranging from primary to adult. Each class has a teacher who has gone through a training course with our Minister of Christian Education. This ensures we are equipped and effective in sharing the word of God for Christian living.
Our adult and adult contemporary classes are lively, and discussion oriented, as you can still hear comments about the lesson well after the class has ended!
The classes for our younger students are interactive, with music, games, and crafts to help illustrate the lesson. Our junior class will equip students with memory verses along with other foundational fulfillments. The teen class has always been a space for discussing current and life events relevant to the issues facing our youth, and how God is with them in their Christian walk.
Classes meet from 8:15 to 9:15 am every Sunday, and we all come together as a combined class during a general assembly every fifth Sunday.
