Our mission is to make church a place where children want to be. Our passion is to build relationships so we might have the privledge of being a part of each child's spiritual journey. We wish to partner with you as parents as your child comes to know Christ and grows into a faithful follower that is excited about serving him throughout their lives. Contact Yvette Haney, our Children's Minister, for more information.
