Children's Ministries

Our Children's Ministries are uniquely designed for children through 5th grade. We believe children are a blessing from God and we are passionate about creating an environment that is safe, age-appropriate and fun where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way allowing children to grow in their relationship with Jesus.

We seek to make and mature young disciples of Jesus, who love God, encourage others, and serve the world.

Vbs

One week in the month of July, Vacation Bible School is offered for children age 3 to those ending 5th grade.


VBS is a great opportunity for kids to learn about Jesus and socialize with others their age in a fun and safe environment.  


VBS Hours - monday-Friday

9:00 am to noon.  Families are also invited to an afternoon of swimming at Pine Cove Swim Club and the children & families are welcome to attend a final VBS program during the 10:45 worship where the children showcase what they have learned!


As the children are surrounded by god's word, the reality of god's love gains new meaning and RELEVANCE to their EVERYDAY lives.  Plus, they'll have an AMAZING time trying out new games, songs, awesome science experiments and more!
