It is our vision to help parents raise children who love Jesus! Children’s Ministry introduces children to the Lord and empowers them to develop a committed, lifelong relationship with God. (Deuteronomy 6:6-9, MSG)


It is our mission to provide a safe, nurturing and spiritually- challenging environment where children can grow and learn to exercise their faith in God.
