Children's MINISTRY

Developing a Relationship with Jesus

The goal of our Children's Ministry is to bring our youngest members from the community into a relationship with Jesus. We believe children have the capacity to walk intimately with God and we help guide them through practical skills learning, Bible stories, songs and crafts.
