We believe church should be a safe and engaging place where children can grow in grace. We want kids to know that the Bible is full of amazing stories that matter in their lives today, that fun and games and laughter are a natural part or worship, and that there are adults in the church who truly want to love and lead them closer to Jesus.
Sundays from 8:45am - 12:30pm
