Stuff For Kids

Learning Center Welcome Revised 2015

Our children’s area is not childcare, it’s an opportunity for your children to explore faith in a way they can understand. Each age group has a specifically designed curriculum to help them learn about God while you experience the main gathering.

Every Sunday morning we have a growing children’s ministry, where kids can meet God and new friends. Relax with our secure nursery area with paging system is just down the hall from the main gathering.
