Children & Families
This ministry exists to partner with parents and caregivers to help children learn how to begin and develop a relationship with Jesus, and to lay the foundation for a missional lifestyle while nurturing the relationship of children and their families. Read more about our vision for this ministry.

Sunday School – 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

4th to 6th Grade Ministry – 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
This is an exciting ministry is designed specifically for this age group. Kids participate in activities to challenge them to start looking at their faith more closely and how it shapes who they are and how they can live missional lives. They are encouraged and supported by parents and other adults and empowered to take their faith out into their world. Program runs from September to May. For more information, contact Dee Ann Lord.
FAITH Milestones are significant events in the lives of children, youth and families that celebrate and nurture faith development. Faith formation is a life-long journey. By celebrating milestones along the way, we recognize how God is always present in our lives, equip families to practice their faith at home and encourage engagement in our community.
- Baptism – Parents who wish to have their child baptized are encouraged to visit with Pastor Jane.
- First Bible – One of our responsibilities as parents raising a child in the Christian faith is to place God’s Word in their hands. As your faith community we would like to help you in this endeavor. Be watching for our next First Bible opportunity for all families with children 1st – 6th grade. First Bible includes a blessing of the Bibles to be given to your child/children and family Bible activities.
- First Communion Workshop – Celebrating communion is a part of our weekly gathering, and we encourage families with children first grade or older to join us for a morning of discovery and learning together to prepare children for taking part in this important gift Jesus gave. First communion workshops happen once or twice a year.
Kids Camp happens July 16-20, 2018. The theme is “Shipwrecked – Rescued by Jesus.” Each day, kids participate in small groups as well as having large group experience. For kids 4 years of age through those entering 6th grade.
Kids Camp is filled with unforgettable Bible-learning experiences. Kids will see, hear, touch, and even taste! Plus, hands-on service projects and mission work. Catch a glimpse of what camp is like by viewing Kids Camp 2016 on YouTube. For more information, contact Dee Ann Lord.
