God’s Word permeates all that we do with our children. We teach them the truth of God's love through the gospel, equip them to be followers of Jesus in our broken world, and facilitate opportunities for them to grow in fellowship with their peers. Our partnership with parents and committed volunteers from our church body gives great depth to this ministry.

We disciple our children by teaching them God's Word, equipping them to become lifelong followers of Jesus who are growing together in their faith, sharing the love and hope Jesus offers in our broken world.
