Our primary focus for our children's ministry is to equip each generation to treasure Christ through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Each child from toddler to 5th grade studies the same Scripture passage each week and focuses on who God is, who we are, and why Jesus had to come. Jesus' coming is a fulfillment of a promise from God to defeat Satan, and deliver all of humanity from bondage to sin. We desire our children to embody this Good News of Jesus in their lives.
