When it comes to kids, we have a simple goal: to provide a safe, happy, and loving environment for kids to learn what it means to be part of the family of God.
Our children's areas are designed to provide age-appropriate opportunities for kids to hear and interact with the great stories of God's people; feel the unconditional love of Jesus through caring teachers and caregivers; and experience the fellowship of the Holy Spirit as they sing, pray, and play games together.
If your son or daughter has special needs, let us know so we can work together to make your child's worship and learning experience great.
