Welcome To Kids Ministry

Welcoming and loving each child in Jesus' name, growing with them as Jesus' disciples, and serving others together in His name.

We do this in the midst of a community that sincerely lives out the vows regularly affirmed at baptism, to provide a place where children can grow in Christian friendships, in knowing God's Word, in responding to Jesus as Savior and Lord, and in service to God's world.
