We strive to guide children in the beginning of their faith journeys’, while intentionally building ways for children, teens, and adults to grow, not just as individuals, but as a family.
We offer programs twice weekly (Sunday and Wednesday) during the school year. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Sarah Thomson.
Our children’s ministry uses The Gospel Project curriculum by Lifeway. This is a Christ-centered curriculum that focuses on introducing children to Christ in every lesson. We are currently working our way through the story of God in a chronological manner. Their website also includes training videos for teachers and parents alike on how to better engage kids about their faith outside of the Sunday morning setting.
