Verse of the Day

For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. — 1 Peter 1:18-19 (NIV)

Children’s Ministry News

Welcome to Children’s Ministry at our Church! We are here to support families as you “train up your children in the way they should go”.
Lauren Coleman 
has been leading our Children’s ministry for 2 years. She has two small children and a background in Psychology and Education. Welcome Lauren

On Sundays, our 10:30 service has both Sunday School and nursery. Nursery is for ages 0-3 and parents may drop off children for the whole service or just for part of it. Quite a few parents enjoy letting their babies and toddlers experience worship at the beginning and communion at the end, but the choice is yours. Children in Pre-K through grade 5 leave service with their Sunday School teachers and return after the sermon and Peace. Currently, we are learning about the Gospels in our Discipleship, Jr. curriculum and the kids are having a blast as the learn Scripture. Don’t forget to join us after service so we can meet you and your kids!

Wednesday’s in Lent we will be offering programming for the whole family! After a light supper at 6pm, Children will be challenged to memorize scripture through games, crafts, and stories. The evening wraps up around 8:15.

Special Events

Protecting God’s Children  – We offer a training. This is a required course for all children and youth volunteers as well as all staff and vestry, and is a good resource for all parents too. This covers the prevention and awareness of child abuse and safe practices for our church. Refreshments provided.
