It takes a village to raise a family.

Our Kids Ministry is grounded in the idea that nurturing a child's journey with Jesus involves hands-on experiences and intergenerational partnership within the church-community. No matter where you're at or where you come from, we’re in it together with you to foster healthy connection and support for your child's journey, from birth through 5th Grade and beyond.
