Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. – Matthew 19:14
Do you have children? Do you like ministering to children? Do like playing with or teaching children? If you said yes to any of those questions, then you should read further. If you said no, you should also read further so that we might change your mind.

We have two Sunday school classes at 10AM every Sunday morning. Mrs. Linda teaches our 4-year-old preschoolers up through our 3rd graders, and Mr. Mike teaches our 4th through 6th graders. They have great lessons and lots of fun just. They are just waiting for your kids. The classes are in the older part of the church, where the chapel is, on the first floor.
You may have noticed the children disappearing during the sermon on Sunday mornings (except the first Sunday). We hope this gives you the ability to focus on the sermon more. Our Children’s Church team takes the same Bible story and relays it in a kid friendly way.
We really could use a couple more hands for Children’s Church. We won’t put you in charge but it would be helpful if there was another set of adult hands near by to help wrangle the kids.

Kids for Christ is our younger youth group. We meet every Sunday from 6:00 PM to 7:15 PM in room 100. Usually, we play a few games, learn music, have a craft, and learn a lesson. It is a good time for the children to meet other Christian children or to invite their friends to join in on the fun. It is also a good time to get an hour and 15 minutes of peace.
