The Children’s Ministry is a support ministry to families, whose purpose is to create an opportunity for families to follow Jesus Christ and become rooted in God’s Word.

Scripture – Matthew 28:19-20: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I commanded you, and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

We take this command very seriously and strive to create that discipleship opportunity. We want to make little followers of Christ, who in turn grow up to be big followers of Him.
